Press release

 

 

The International Network of Oasis in Tunis: from within the Arab transition, to also understand better the West

 

 

On Monday 18, and Tuesday, 19 June, the International Committee of the Oasis Foundation (www.fondazioneoasis.org) will meet again, this time in Tunis, on the theme of “Religion in a society in transition. How Tunisia challenges the West.”

 

 

After the encounter last June in Venice, where we discussed the social, religious and cultural issues arising from the popular uprisings which have taken place in the Middle Eastern and North African countries, this year Oasis’s International network will study the “Tunisian case”, the debate on the new Constitution and the ferments within civil society, so as to understand from within the events and factors which are changing the face of some countries in North Africa, and to grasp to what extent and how these factors concern the West as well.

 

 

Christian and Muslim experts from all over the world will participate in these working sessions.

 

The International meeting in Tunis will be the ninth encounter of Oasis’s Scientific Committee, a reality founded in 2004 by Cardinal Angelo Scola, the then Patriarch of Venice. This follows meetings in Venice (2011), Beirut (2010), Venice (2009), Amman (2008), Venice (2007), Cairo (2006), and Venice (2005 & 2004).
