Civilizations Library offers a venue for structured discussions. It has the right atmosphere and technical facilities to enable productive exchange of opinions and ensure understanding. For any discussion, first of all, is a demonstration of respect towards your opponent, the ability to listen to and focus on arguments. Therefore, the facilities offered by the Civilizations Library as a venue for discussions least of all resembles an academic hall or an office-like ‘round-table’, which only stimulate official and passive attitudes.

You will always remember your experience of a discussion at the Civilizations Libraryas a bright intellectual activity, with your active involvement, when you were heard by the most fervent opponents. Most frequent topics for discussions: demographic development issues, interethnic interaction, energy security, peace-making technologies in conflict zones, innovative models of development.

Chisinau Book Club at the Civilizations Library offers a permanent platform for discussions every two weeks.
