Conference cycle

As part of the cycle of conferences initiated by the Euromed University of Fez, the Alliance of Civilizations Chair of the UEMF organized a conference moderated by Mr. Ghazi GHERAIRI, on Thursday February 7, under the theme of: “What alliances for what world in 2024? ".

Doctor in public law and political science, Mr. Ghazi GHERAIRI is a former Ambassador representing Tunisia to UNESCO as well as to the International Organization of La Francophonie. He was also Secretary General of the International Academy of Constitutional Law.

A conference which was held in the presence of students, Vice-Presidents of the University, Directors and heads of establishments and Teacher-researchers of the University saw moments of collective reflection on the alliances of civilizations and the need to achieve a new world order that is fairer and more united by taking into account the diversity of contemporary societies and relying on constructive, honest and sustainable dialogue.

The speaker highlighted a topic of crucial importance, given the state of uncertainty that currently envelops all parameters related to international relations and global systems. He reviewed the political, economic and ethical issues of the alliance of civilizations in a recent context through a geopolitical and geoeconomic reading of the current world. Climate crisis, humanitarian crisis and even the emergence of new technologies and the use of artificial intelligence, are all challenges that humans must face in order to create an honest and healthy dialogue for a peaceful world and a universal civilization. .

Thus, the meeting was an opportunity for UEMF students, in particular those of the Master “Conflict Management and Alliance of Civilizations” to discuss with Dr. GHERAIRI around a certain number of questions related to the subjects discussed during this academic conference.

This event, which is also part of the Activities of the Alliance of Civilizations Chair of the Euromed University of Fez, adds to the series of large-scale events held within the UEMF with the aim of strengthen the intellectual dynamic and stimulate the thinking of young students at the Euromed University of Fez by offering them a real opportunity for revealing and constructive exchange.

It should be remembered that the creation of this Chair was decreed during the 9th edition of the World Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) held in Fez on November 22-23, 2022 by the High Representative of the UNAOC, HE Miguel Angel Moratinos.
