Being Muslim: Perspectives from Aotearoa New Zealand Converts

Islam is one of the fastest-growing religions in Aotearoa New Zealand, particularly among Māori. Yet, little attention has been given to conversion to Islam in Aotearoa New Zealand. Given that Muslim converts form an important yet an overlooked group within Muslim communities, this panel of distinguished speakers will provide unique insights into diverse experiences of Islamic conversion in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Chair

Dr Ayca Arkilic, Victoria University of Wellington and MEISA

Panel

  • Noeleen van de Lisdonk, Co-founder of the Fatimah Foundation and Founding Member of Ō Mātou Reo - a nation-wide network of Māori Muslims
  • Abdullah Drury, Historian and former Communications Officer for the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand
  • Dr Bronwyn Wood, Faculty Member at United Arab Emirates University and Founding Director of the Aotearoa New Zealand-based consultancy, Muslim Marketing Matters
