Reset-Dialogues on Civilizations, Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought, Columbia University Law School and Yale University are glad to invite you to attend the book presentation:
In October 2016, the international association Reset-Dialogues on Civilizations in collaboration with Giorgio Cini Foundation, Ca’ Foscari University and FIND India-Europe Foundation for New Dialogues will host a discussion in Venice about two trends in the global political discourse across the board: the hardening and radicalization of group identities defined around religion, race or ethnicity, and the shift in the politics of democracies towards anti-élite and populist movements, with a resurgence in nationalism, the growing popularity of illiberal forces, and majoritarian tendencies rising to the surface.
The international think tank Reset-Dialogues on Civilizations is turning the spotlight on Libya with an upcoming meeting in Tunis to be held on September 30th, 2016. Libya’s scenario of persistent crisis, characterized by the lack of a state authority that controls the territory and assures the security of its citizens, and the formation of an interim government earlier this year, the so-called Government of National Accord (GNA), that aims at ending years of bloodshed, reveal the urgency to open a debate on a real state building process that could point the way to the consolidation of the rule of law within Libya’s borders.
This year, the Reset-DoC Award for Intercultural Dialogue goes to the short-film "Yek an/A Moment" (Iran 2015), by Naghi Nemati.

After a first meeting in Berlin in 2015, and a second meeting in Washington on March 31st April 1st 2016 in collaboration with GWU and Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, Reset-DoC is organizing a conference on “State and Political Discourse in Russia” to be held in Venice (June 17th – 18th, 2016).
Russia presents itself as a new conservative power, and promotes so-called conservative values. What does this term of ‘conservatism’ mean? Can it be considered as the Kremlin’s main political language? What are the main places of ‘production’ of this conservatism, who are its main spokespersons? Can we identify diversity and plurality inside this ‘conservative’ spectrum? What does this tell us about Russian contemporary political culture?
