Carthage, Tunisia
ResetDOC in collaboration with Beit Al Hikma, the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is organizing the 2022 Carthage Seminars and Summer School. This year’s theme will address the issues relating to the difficulties faced by Middle Eastern and North African countries in establishing social change. More than a decade has passed since the Jasmine Revolution and many MENA countries are still struggling to successfully implement economic and social reform. The added struggles imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent invasion of Ukraine by Vladimir Putin have exacerbated the external conditions needed to guarantee stability and economic growth in the region. The Seminars and Summer School will attempt to look at the current challenges and analyze what future obstacles, such as Climate Change, may get in the way of development and try and determine what the path forward may be.

From poetry to cinema, from microblogging to theater, from literature to journalism, arts and media are always a fertile ground for experimentation and imagination, creativity and political dissent. That is the case across Arab and Muslim societies, too. This e-book strives to shed light on those very intellectual resources – often neglected, at times repressed – to unpack the complexity of societies and cultural experiences across the MENA region. A specific focus is provided, in the second part, on the social and cultural ferment in Tunisia, a particularly interesting reality, that deserves special attention in this season of great political and democratic uncertainty.  This collection of essays – signed by renowned authors, promising scholars and journalists – is the output of the 2021 edition of the Carthage Seminars, jointly convened by Reset DOC and the Tunisian Academy of Sciences, Letters and Arts-Beit al-Hikma, with the support of the Henry Luce Foundation, and dedicated to Pluralism in Arab and Muslim Societies. Freely circulated, this monograph seeks to highlight the relevance of and further encourage creativity and cultural pluralism across Arab and Muslim societies.
Our Initiatives 2018/2020
What are liberal democracy’s greatest weaknesses in the face of spreading populist movements? What can reform-minded liberals do to loosen the tightening knot of anger and nationalist extremism? In order to achieve a truly inclusive and open public sphere where no dominant perspective is imposed from above – and where values and proposals are freely discussed and challenged Reset Dialogues on Civilizations has launched a new series of seminars and public lectures focused on the Illiberal Trend affecting contemporary democracies. 
An international forum and summer school, in partnership with the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, on the prospects for democracy, human rights, secularism and religion across different cultures able to promote and consolidate a network of cultural, intellectual and academic relationships among senior and junior scholars in the social sciences, political theory, sociology, legal, and religious studies.
