  6. The Myth of the Clash of Civilizations

    By Chiara Bottici, Benoît Challand

    While globalization unifies the world, divisions re-emerge within it in the form of a spectacular separation between Islam and the West.

    In the light of current events, particularly the ‘post September 11th’ debates with much focus on aspects of the ‘clash of civilisation’ thesis, the issue of Islamic identity is a crucial one.
