Towards new forms of geopolitical identity

The role of the university and the ‘Charter of Taormina’.

In collaboration with the Italian Representation of the European Commission and LUISS University

Forge of growth and knowledge, the university plays an irreplaceable role within our corporate context. It is no coincidence that, in order to create geopolitical identities that, based on sustainability, inclusiveness and social cohesion, are aimed at dialogue between different cultures, Italian universities can only assume a primary role. Therefore, how should our university system approach geopolitics, a traditionally highly divisive issue? What strategies can be adopted to sensitize students to such complex topics without polarizing narratives, creating more sustainable and inclusive learning paths?
