Module 14 – Re-evaluating Liberalism (Seminar)

22nd-23rd November 2018 (2 days)

Since mid 19th century until now, liberalism has become more and more dominant as a political ideology, and it has been interpreted and re-interpreted many times over the past 200 years. With the present multi-dimensional global crisis, its roots can be traced back to the core values of liberalism, of one kind or another. It is therefore a critical time to re-evaluate liberalism from various perspectives, especially non-western vantage points.
