Tolerance in Mediterranean Societies: History, Ideas, and Institutions

The Casablanca School 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 School combines a workshop targeting young scholars, researchers, journalists, and media professionals together with an international conference addressing the broader public. The School is fully integrated with the conference, whose core topic is the reawakening of Islamic pluralistic traditions. This is addressed by using critical tools provided by the social sciences — from domestic law to theology, and from political philosophy to sociology, anthropology, and history. Comparative cases are also discussed — especially within contexts that share the same religious background, or with contexts that once held similar backgrounds before turning to secular/liberal models.

The school 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.


Reset Dialogues and the King Abdul-Aziz Al-Sa’ud Foundation for Islamic Studies and Human Sciences are pleased to present the second edition of the Casablanca Summer School.

WORKING LANGUAGES
