6) Avishai Margalit. Commitment, in the “Crisis” cycle (Talk, 2011)
Speakers: Avisahai Margalit, Josep Ramoneda –presenter-.
The shock of the economic crisis has rudely awoken us from sweet dreams of social welfare. Almost seamlessly, we have gone from living oblivious to concerns about the future to marching desperately towards the uncertain, bombarded with dark predictions. But crises can also be times of great upheaval and creativity, opening an interval of freedom before a new order crystallizes. Once again, the big question is what means we have at our disposal to face that challenge.

Speakers: M’hamed Abdelouahed Allaoui, Salwa L’Aouaji El Gharbi.
Contrary to stereotypes of a society locked in the past, this conference on Morocco focuses on the overlapping of very different realities and dynamics: from movements of democratic opposition under Hassan II to the processes of transformation currently under way in all social spheres, and the existence of quite distinct cultures and traditions.

Contrary to stereotypes of a society locked in the past, this conference on Morocco focuses on the overlapping of very different realities and dynamics: from movements of democratic opposition under Hassan II to the processes of transformation currently under way in all social spheres, and the existence of quite distinct cultures and traditions.
