Para fomentar el debate democrático  
04-11-2005 2:15 pm An International Symposium on “Cultural Diversity and Transversal Values: East-West Dialogue on Spiritual-Secular Dynamics” at UNESCO from November 7 to 9 (Room IV) will bring together scholars, intellectuals and philosophers of different cultures to reflect and debate on the themes of cultural diversity and the East-West dialogue.
The Symposium is organized jointly by UNESCO and the Research Centre for Moral Science (Japan), in partnership with the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (EPHE) and the International Council for Philosophy and Humanistic Studies (ICPHS) as well as the Permanent Delegation of Japan to UNESCO and the French National Commission for UNESCO. The meeting will focus on the origins and nature of cultural values shared by East Asia and the West through concrete examples of intercultural meetings throughout history.

The aim of the Symposium is to identify new directions for dialogue between these two geo-cultural areas in order to facilitate the transfer of ideas and cultures, thereby contributing to the emergence of an environment favourable to mutual respect between peoples of different cultures and religions.

The Director-General of UNESCO, Koïchiro Matsuura, will open the symposium on November 7 at 10 a.m. During the two-day meeting, five sessions will cover the following themes: The East-West Encounter in History; Mediators and Means of Dialogue; Cultural Diversity and Plurality of Values; The Impact of Modernity on the Transfer of Cultures; and Transversal Values in a Diverse World. A final communiqué will be adopted during the closing session on November 9, at 3 p.m.
