Evento annullato e rimandato a data da destinarsi

Venue: Palazzo di Giurisprudenza, via Verdi 53 (Trento) – Room 4
Time: 14.00 – 17.30

Managing cultural diversities is one of the great challenges of all societies that – as in Italy - are still in the process of adapting to new conditions of pluralism. Coping with the presence of Islam appears to be, by itself, a challenge within the challenge. Austria – having since long experienced the need to host Islam within a multinational and multireligious polity – is proposing its own model for regulating the presence of Islam in society within an institutional setting. The meeting will contribute to a better knowledge and a critical understanding of the Austrian Islam Law adopted in 2015.
