Tolerance in Mediterranean Societies: History, Ideas and Institutions
Fondation du Roi Abdul-Aziz

CASABLANCA CONFERENCE ’19
July 11-13, 2019 | King Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud Foundation for Islamic Studies and Human Sciences. 
Rue du Corail, Ain Diab, Casablanca, Morocco

The Casablanca Conference organized by Reset Dialogues on Civilizations in collaboration with the Fondation du Roi Abdul Aziz is a project on cultural-religious pluralism, education, and political liberties.

The conference focuses on the multiple historical, theological, social, philosophical and legal-constitutional dimensions of the complex and constantly evolving relationships between religion and politics in MENA societies. Special attention is paid to the role played by education – and that of religious education in particular – in the historical evolution of this relationship. Within this thematic framework, the main objective is to trace the diverse historical conditions behind the formation, perpetuation, and transformation of related concepts and ideas.


LANGUAGES: English and Arabic, a simultaneous translation from English to Arabic and vice-versa will be provided.
