Panel: Arab Culture, Renewed Debates and Modernisation
We always find ourselves stuck in a dialogue between the past, present and future. The Arab culture is always responsible for answering the question of choice and controversies from the past and into the future. Now is one of the benchmarks in our way of thinking, which is still deliberate research on the same issues which were discussed by those who came before us.
