Reset-Dialogues would like to invite you to attend the book presentation of Toward New Democratic Imaginaries - Istanbul Seminars on Islam, Culture and Politics. It gathers nine years of work and dialogues "on the Bosphorus," edited by Seyla Benhabib abd Volker Kaul. Reset-Dialogues has been forced to suspend the Istanbul Seminars '17 given the recent political developments in Turkey and the harsh restrictions of freedom of speech and the press.
The book presentation is also an occasion to reconsider the place of Islam in politics in the aftermath of the Arab Spring and terrorism and to ask how to bring back civil liberties and human rights on the political agenda in the Muslim world. We are pleased to invite you to a cocktail reception after the conference.
