SOURCES OF PLURALISME IN ISLAMIC THOUGHT

Mis à jour : 14 janv. 2019

CASABLANCA SUMMER SCHOOL

Pluralism, Education and Political Liberties

July 9-14, 2018 


The Casablanca School, in collaboration with the Fondation du Roi Abdul Aziz Al Saoud pour les Etudes Islamiques et les Sciences Humaines and the Granada Institute for Higher Education and Research, is a project on cultural-religious pluralism, education and political liberties. The School combines a Conference for the broader public with ad hoc activities and workshops targeting young scholars and researchers, journalists and media professionals, and teachers and theologians. The School is fully integrated with the conference and its core topic is the reawakening of Islamic pluralistic traditions, addressed through critical tools provided by the social sciences, ranging from domestic law to theology, and from political philosophy to sociology, anthropology and history, etc. The School focuses on the multiple historical, theological, social, philosophical and legal-constitutional dimensions of the complex and constantly evolving relationships between religion and politics in contemporary societies. Special attention is given to the role played by education – and religious education in particular – in the historical evolution of this relationship. Within this thematic framework, the main objective is to trace the diverse historical conditions behind the formation, perpetuation and transformation of concepts of various types.
