OF MEDITERRANEAN STUDIES
Averroès was founded by University of Marrakech Cadi Ayyad together with
Fondazione Mediterraneo, with the aim to set up a Chair coordinating the studies
concerning the Euro-Mediterranean region.
It is a great
contribution to the diffusion of ideas and knowledges in the Mediterranean,
through intercultural, scientific and cultural exchanges and to the
strengthening of the relationships between the two strips, so that knowledge of
each other could become a key factor of peace in the region.
The name of
Averroès was chosen in order to involve people living in the Mediterranean
region in the dialogue of cultures.
aims of Chair Averroès are:
Exchange of knowledges and experiences. A person coming from one of the
Mediterranean Countries will monthly lecture with the aim of creating a
permanent structure for the exchanges.
Research and PhD: seminars will be organized for PhD students involved in
the Mediterranean area, in order to expand on their researches.
The diffusion of an annual publication of the lectures texts and a
