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 current political situation in Post-Soviet countries, primarily the Russian Federation, raises questions about the cultural roots of today’s prevailing nationalist political ideologies and behaviours. The international scientific community has to overcome the lack of knowledge about Russia’s Post-Soviet history, also in order to avoid the sheer repetition of old clichés – liberal -western opinions versus a despotic-eastern world

From West to East, the spread of populist and authoritarian regimes is challenging the liberal order and undermining its core values. What are the roots of this phenomenon? And how can they be addressed? To answer these questions Reset Dialogues on Civilizations and the Václav Havel Library are convening a two-day forum with some of the world’s foremost political scientists and philosophers for a comparative examination of the diverse perspectives on liberalism in contemporary political cultures.
