UNESCO.
Publisher: Paris : Unesco. United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, cop. 2008Description: 123 p.Summary: When civilizations enter into dialogue, who really speaks? Can civilizations and cultures still speak in a single voice? Do some voices have more authority than others? These are a few specific questions that were raised during the seminar ‘New Stakes for Intercultural Dialogue’, held at UNESCO headquarters on 6–7 June 2006. This seminar addressed the challenges of intercultural dialogue at the international level, within the Arab world and in modern cities in other countries, and shed new light on the nature and forms of intercultural dialogue in a world where intolerance and rejection of the Other are again on the offensive. Bringing together participants from all geographical, disciplinary and institutional horizons: academics (philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, archaeologists, historians, literary critics and architects), officials from international organizations (ISESCO, the Council of Europe, and the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for the Dialogue between Cultures and United Cities and Local Governments), writers and artists, and many nongovernmental organizations, the meetings went beyond a strictly conceptual approach to focus on the renewal of intercultural dialogue in areas in which it has broken down or has been discredited.
