CULCON XXI: Symposium Role of Citizens
in Dialogue among Civilizations/
Overview of the Theme

About>>
In 2001, the year designated by the UN as the “Year of Dialogue among Civilizations,”the world was rocked by the September 11 terrorist attacks, making the necessity for such dialogue all too clear. The event is accelerating efforts to promote dialogue and deepen understanding between differing civilizations.

Genuine dialogue requires civilizations to deepen mutual understanding by explaining their distinguishing features to each other and understanding each other’s value systems and world views. With actors on the world stage proliferating, nation states are not the only units with key roles to play in inter-civilization dialogue. Important roles are also anticipated for local government bodies, NPOs, and NGOs in transcending national borders to work on globalization. Thus, the role of citizens in inter-civilization dialogue is growing in both Japan and the United States.

With this in mind, this symposium will discuss how to develop inter-civilization dialogue from the perspectives of culture and education.
