'Casa Árabe: Where Spain and the Arab World encounter each other'

'Casa Árabe: Where Spain and the Arab World encounter each other'

Lecture by Casa Árabe's General Director Eduardo López Busquets at Fordham University, as part of the British Council's Our Shared Future project.

Established in 2006, Casa Árabe is a young public Spanish institution that plays a fundamental role in strengthening the relations between Spain and the Arab world. Especially in the last two years, Casa Árabe has been monitoring the transformations that take place in the North of Africa and Middle East. Casa Árabe conducts and participates in several activities related to the field of culture and human and economic development, and supports the dialogue and communication between different people and groups on an equal footing.

The institution has approached the mutual knowledge, promoting the understanding of the diversity and plurality of Arab and/or Muslims communities, its social, cultural and political features depending on each country. Spain’s geostrategic location and its Arab legacy, consolidates Casa Árabe as a fundamental interlocutor to reaffirm the intrinsic value of cultural diversity and the rights of people to their culture, through respect and mutual understanding.

Free and open to the public. No RSVP required.
