Reset Dialogues on Civilizations in collaboration with the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the Mominoun Foundation without Borders is convening in Venice a five days summer school and a three days conference addressing issues concerning global intellectual history and study how modern nation-states have engaged with issues of difference and integration, including the themes of subnational identities and linguistic, ethnic and religious minorities in Europe, North America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Reset Dialogues in collaboration with the Italian Academy at Columbia University and the support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, presents a half-day event to confront these themes in furtherance of its mission to promote cultural pluralism and political liberties.
Reset DOC in collaboration with BookCity Milano will present and engage in an open debate on its last volume titled “Mediterranean Challenge: What Pushes People from Africa Northwards”. If you’re based in Milan, join us at Cascina Casottello.
This new study promoted by Reset DOC aims to go precisely to the origins of the phenomenon of migration from the south to Europe, to restore transit dignity to the choice of hundreds of thousands of people, and objectively reconstruct one of the most politicised issues of recent decades.
Our Initiatives 2018/2020
The international association Reset Dialogues on Civilizations is launching the Reset School of Pluralism, a yearly international program on cultural and religious pluralism and political liberties. The purpose is to promote a local intellectual response to the rise of rigorist strands of Islamic thought by training 30 emerging opinion-leaders on the relationship between religion, history and power and to contribute to the reawakening of pluralistic traditions in Muslim contexts.
The key aim of this project is to strengthen dialogue and common research between Europe and North Africa for promoting and researching on democratic culture, cooperation aimed at forming and strengthening the human and intellectual resources of freedom, critical thinking, tolerance and pluralism from inside both the European and the Arab tradition.
