DOC Anniversary Event

DOC Research Institute Anniversary

Registration is closed


In June 2016 the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute opened in Berlin. Though only one year has passed, much has happened. Projects, events, research and – first and foremost – dialogue! Great people with great minds have joined the DOC, be it as guests, lecturers, experts, employees, or friends. The institute has started to co-operate with think tanks in China, India, and other countries. A string of interesting events has taken off, central to which was the 14th Rhodes Forum last autumn.

To share this memory, we host the DOC Anniversary Summer Fest 2017 at the Humboldt-Box in Berlin, on 28 June 2017. It will start at 16:00 with a round-table discussion on the subject of Protecting our Cultural Heritage“.
