The ‘Clash of Civilizations’ and Relations between the West and the Muslim world

Inter-civilizational ‘clash’ and ‘dialogue’ have become mainstream issues in many Western countries’ domestic concerns. Is there a real problem between Islam and the West? Is Christianity facing Islam today? If it is, is its reason the historical roots or the consequences of the new political order established (or not-be-able-to-established yet) after the unipolar moment?
Is it possible to reconstruct a more peaceful world by establishing a bridge between people of different faiths at a time when societies are divided into various camps? The problem of the conflict of civilizations, which sometimes manifests itself as Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, xenophobia or other forms, is based on the psychology of prejudice, fear and hate. Will Islam and Western civilizations hand in hand to challenge this problem? We are delighted to invite you to participate a regular meeting of the Dialog Talks in the Dunaj Dialog Institute.

This event will be held 22.01.2020.
