IRD Activities

  • Human Rights, Cultural Diversity and Globalization

    Study of the challenges of cultural diversity in the implementation of fundamental rights, in a context of economic globalization. Such an approach requires the study of key parameters (socio-cultural, moral, religious, historical or other) involved or not the effective and universal implementation of these rights

  • Memory of Cultures and Conflict Management

    The memory of cultures broadens the scope of universality and constitutes a major challenge in terms of social cohesion, collective will to live, or even peace between States. Research on this topic will aim to identify socio-cultural and intra-community or inter community religious practices involved in conflict prevention, to study the actual degree of efficiency in the management of conflicts and to examine how these practices can inspire other methods of dispute settlements.
