The main objective of the Congress is to cross our analyses and methodologies for a better perception of the current Islamic reality.

The programme of the three days is structured around three areas:

– The geopolitical area is about the current dynamics and their economic and confessional developments;
– The theological area will focus on issues in the context of the interfaith dialogue;
– Societal part is expected to highlight the diversity inherent in any religious movement, especially in the way of facing the challenges of modernity.

PLURIEL is an electronic platform that seeks to raise the profile of the research groups. The Congress will thus be an opportunity to discover and promote at the workshops their current work in progress.
