The XXI century will be a сentury either of total all-embracing crisis or of moral and spiritual healing that will reinvigorate humankind. It is my conviction that all of us - all reasonable political leaders, all spiritual and ideological movements, all  faiths - must help in this transition to a triumph of humanism and justice, in making the XXI century a century of a new human renaissance.

Research and practice seminar "In search of new models of cross-cultural interaction"


On June 14 this year, the Gorbachev Foundation and the Woodrow Wilson International Center (The Kennan Institute) conducted  the first seminar within the Cultural Diversity Challenges in a Global World project.

The seminar participants analyzed ways for developing new models of cross-cultural interaction in the contemporary world based on the experience gained by individual countries. They considered the existing theoretic approaches to the multi-culturalism policy, its strengths and weaknesses, practical experience in organizing cross-cultural dialogues, and new prospective ideas in this field.

Seminar In Search of New Models of Cross-cultural Interaction was conducted with the participation of the Council on civil society development and human rights under the President of the Russian Federation
