OUR GOAL

OSI is the first and only centre of Occidental studies within the Western world that intends to research the roots of western society, while identifying its complementarities and synergies with other cultures inside and outside of “Westernity”. As well as identifying the incidence of Occidental influence in global policies and models of governance, OSI seeks to define a clear picture of what the concept of “Westernity “involves; what it is to live in an Occidental Society and what is to be an Occidental citizen, as well as exploring what the implications of this are for our own future and the Occident’s own interaction with different societies.

Explore the values of the Western Mindset

OSI intends to explore the values of the Western Mindset as a concept of integration itself, as an idea of the universalism based on the common principles and as model of real integration and tolerance.
