The international association Reset Dialogues on Civilizations is launching the Casablanca School, a yearly international program on cultural and religious pluralism and political liberties. The purpose is to promote a local intellectual response to the rise of rigorist strands of Islamic thought by training 30 emerging opinion-leaders on the relationship between religion, history and power and to contribute to the reawakening of pluralistic traditions in Muslim contexts.
The key aim of this project is to strengthen dialogue and common research
between Europe and North Africa for promoting and researching on democratic
culture, cooperation aimed at forming and strengthening the human
and intellectual resources of freedom, critical thinking, tolerance and pluralism
from inside both the European and the Arab tradition.
