Online (Zoom)
Join us on Monday November 7th at 10am EST and 4pm CET to unpack an historic 20th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party. With Xi’s unprecedented reconfirmation, what can we expect from China over the next five years or more? What does it look towards for its future both internally, regionally and internationally?
How do social, religious and political communities foster genuine and lasting reconciliation? What are the viable paths to achieving reconciliation: by way of civil society and social movements, or via diplomacy, truth commissions and official declarations? And is there a complementary role for theology in the process of reconstructing identity? Comparing theories, experiences and best practices, this international conference will aim at generating useful insights and concrete policy recommendations for all stakeholders involved in sensitive reconciliation processes at different latitudes.
Carthage, Tunisia
ResetDOC in collaboration with Beit Al Hikma, the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is organizing the 2022 Carthage Seminars and Summer School. This year’s theme will address the issues relating to the difficulties faced by Middle Eastern and North African countries in establishing social change. More than a decade has passed since the Jasmine Revolution and many MENA countries are still struggling to successfully implement economic and social reform. The added struggles imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent invasion of Ukraine by Vladimir Putin have exacerbated the external conditions needed to guarantee stability and economic growth in the region. The Seminars and Summer School will attempt to look at the current challenges and analyze what future obstacles, such as Climate Change, may get in the way of development and try and determine what the path forward may be.  
The project “Theologies and practices of religious pluralism” investigates  current debates and issues on pluralism within and across religious traditions and  how some of these debates are reshaping the status of  religion in different public spaces. These adaptations have a profound impact on international relations and daily life in every society, across  cultural, ethnic, racial divides. This project is jointly promoted by Reset DOC (Italy), Reset Dialogues (US) the University of Birmingham (UK), the Berkeley Center at Georgetown University (US), the Foundation for Religious Sciences in Bologna and Palermo (Italy) and the Center for the Study of Developing Societies (India).
An international forum and summer school, in partnership with the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, on the prospects for democracy, human rights, secularism and religion across different cultures able to promote and consolidate a network of cultural, intellectual and academic relationships among senior and junior scholars in the social sciences, political theory, sociology, legal, and religious studies.
