The Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (DOC), an independent international think tank based in Berlin, is organising the symposium ‘Islam-Europe: Overcoming differences and sharing paths’ under the auspices of the Presidency of the Republic of Tunisia and in partnership with the Al Jazeera Center for Studies and the LBH Foundation.
As the launch of the ‘Tunis Process’, this symposium will be held in Tunis on 28-29 June 2019 in the presence of approximately thirty international participants – policy-makers, influencers, academics, and practitioners in intercultural and interreligious dialogue. This will be the first in a series of such events that will lead to policy recommendations and initiatives, contributing to the public debate on the relationships between Islam and Europe.
In a political and cultural context that is opposing the value system of Islam against that of Europe, the Tunis Process opens up a space for co-creation, in order to identify the differences to overcome and the possible paths to be shared. Perhaps it is a question of inventing new utopias to provide new horizons. The process is inspired by the will to act and to find solutions rather than establish dogmas.
( This is an invitation-only event.)
