Penser autrement la Méditerranée contemporaine: quelles voies pour le dialogue interculturel ?

Selon les mots de l'auteur, "La Méditerranée s’impose comme le point du globe où se concentre la diversité jusqu’à en devenir l’exemple ou le laboratoire. Elle est la mer des jonctions, à la fois centre du monde et périphérie pour les États qui la bordent. Entre guerres et paix, emprunts et héritages, entre hostilité et hospitalité, cet espace névralgique ne connaît que des équilibres fragiles qui requièrent sans cesse reformulations et négociations. Aussi cette diversité fondée principalement sur une conscience de l’appartenance à un ensemble plus vaste autorise-t-elle aujourd’hui ces zones géographiques frontalières à se fédérer afin d’anticiper sur certains questionnements intégrant les dimensions plurielles, et aussi conflictuelles, de l’interculturalité. Les dispositifs du dialogue étant désormais à l’œuvre, l’approche anthropologique de la communication permettra une approche en finesse d’une question complexe mais riche de potentialités.''
