As a result of nationalism, xenophobia, populism, disenchantment with politics, or mistrust, open society increasingly finds itself in difficulty. From March 3 to 5, 2017, experts, creative artists, and activists from many countries and cultures will meet for the 21st Karlsruhe Dialogues to discuss the future of a pluralistic society. The 21st Karlsruhe Dialogues on “Pluralistic Society and Its Enemies” are conceived and organized by ZAK | Centre for Applied and General Studies of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
