Description

In his paper the WPF `Dialogue of Civilizations` Co-Founder Jagdish Kapur charts the way for harmonizing diverse cultures and religious traditions according to the dialogue of civilization’s paradigm. One of major obstacles to this goal is what he calls `Armament Protected Consumerism` which includes aggregation of wealth with a few, lack of environmental consciousness and unsustainable model of a unipolar power structure aiming for a single civilizational model. A new sustainable paradigm should, to the contrary, include satisfaction of the minimum basic needs for all, cultural and spiritual expansion, cooperatives that can play an important role in creating a spirit of partnership and involvement and respect for sovereignty of nations and their human, religious, ethnic, linguistic and cultural identity and civilizational evolution.
