What is ‘dialogue of civilisations’?
Why is ‘dialogue of civilisations’ important (within certain areas of study and more broadly for humanity)?
How can ‘dialogue of civilisations be practically applied in ‘real world situations’? (Empirical studies are welcomed.)

If you would like to submit a research paper, please send your submission to editor@doc-research.org by June 15, 2018. Papers should be between 3,000 and 6,000 words.
