BERLIN 1 JULY 2016 – The international think tank Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute announces its global launch today, in Berlin.
The Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (DOC) has developed out of the World Public Forum Dialogue of Civilizations, which over its 15-year history built up considerable expertise in creating a space for people from different faiths, backgrounds, and positions, to come together and work to solve some of the world’s most complex problems.
This new Berlin based non-profit research institute builds on that experience, harnessing the intellectual power of its extensive international network of experts, academics and policy makers from the US, Europe, Russia, India, China and beyond.
With operational centres also planned for Russia and, in due course, China, the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute offers international journalists a powerhouse of experts around the world accessible virtually round the clock. Its activities include events, original research, expert commentary, and policy advice all informed by experts and supervisory board members who have both theoretical and practical experience in a wide array of key areas, e.g. conflict resolution, global security, origins of migration, global infrastructure development.
