Reset Dialogues On Civilizations in partnership with the King Abdul-Aziz Al Saoud Foundation for Islamic Studies and Human Sciences is organizing the second edition of the International School and Seminars in Casablanca.
The rapid technological development and digital means of communication that shape current world affairs and relations have not always been used as a means of understanding and dialogue among different cultures and traditions. Physical migration flows due to poverty, conflicts, or civil wars have given rise to discourses of hatred, extremism, and discrimination around the world, East and West, North and South. A number of Muslim majority societies in particular and Muslim minorities in different contexts have been facing such situations of migrations and conflicts, which has necessitated revisiting the historical and institutional heritage of these societies as a way of confronting these serious challenges, which have trespassed borders and confront all traditions and cultures alike.
The second edition of Casablanca Seminars goes on with its aim of understanding of and among traditions to examine the fountains of tolerance in especially Islamic contexts from theological, philosophical, historical, socio-anthropological and institutionally juristic-legal perspectives. Comparisons with non-Islamic traditions, with which Muslim majority or minority societies interact, are also studied.
