Conference on Exploring Models for Peace by Re-Exploring Past: Diversity in the Ottoman Empire

 Over the last two decades, the focus of world politics has shifted from ideological conflicts between the two Super Powers to the so-called ìclash of civilizationsî, which foresees in the post-Cold War era the collision of world civilizations on global scale. Built on the essentialist assumption of the primordial and intrinsic discord of the Islamic and the Western-Christian worlds this view predicts that a major clash will take place between these two civilizations.
