Civilizations against the threat of social barbarism

This research area explores the way social barbarism has become part of contemporary socio-philosophical discourse. Focus is placed on questions of how ‘new forms of social barbarism’, within and across civilisations - including religious fundamentalism and secular extremism - lead to cultural destruction and violence, as well as the question of how different civilisations and countries can work together against the threat of social deterioration or barbarism.
