The aim of the assembly, according to the organisers, was to examine what it means to lead in the Muslim world and reflect on what Benazir Bhutto might have been able to accomplish under today’s circumstances as Pakistan’s prime minister.

The programme will support promising students from Muslim countries committed to democracy, equality for women, reconciliation of religious and cultural differences, and education for all without gender or religious bias.
