Realigning liberalism: Pluralism, Integration, Identities

What kind of politics can contribute to the learning processes of pluralism, which include a preparedness to engage with different cultures and religions based on reciprocity and respect?

What are the cultural and religious foundations of democratic pluralism?

The lectures provide the opportunity for dialogue, and for the practice of mutual understanding among democratic intellectuals and opinion makers belonging to different geo-political regions and cultures of ‘East’ and ‘West’ to occur.
