Casablanca, Morocco, hosted in July an important international conference on Sources of Pluralism in Islamic Thought. This is a topical subject, but above all one worthy of being debated with the wider public, whose perception is that Islam has been a never-changing monolith with no internal differentiations since the days of Muhammad.
Our Initiatives Religion
The international association Reset Dialogues on Civilizations is launching the Casablanca School, 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.
A two-year research project aimed at examining how sacred texts and related theories shape political frames, either toward tolerance and pluralism or, on the contrary, to radicalism and violence.
