Since its foundation, the Academy of Latinity promotes meetings and seminars gathering together well known experts for discussing Latinity, either within a historical perspective, or in function of questions raised by the challenges resulting from globalization.

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, in the United States, the Academy started to organize conferences with the purpose of promoting the dialogue between Latinity and the Islamic heritage, discussing in their debates the pernicious effects of hegemony and the civilization of fear which has been installed following those events. This, in an intent to stimulate the contributions of Latin and Islamic cultures, in search of a plurality of approaches to the great questions of our time, able to oppose the hegemonic vision disseminated by the standardized mechanism of globalization.

According to such intent, the meetings of the Academy of Latinity occur twice a year, alternately, in the Americas and in the countries of Islamic culture.

François L’Yvonnet, presently the executive-secretary of the Academy,  thus sums up the purposes of those meetings:

We are actors of a form of diplomacy of tought, a diplomacy of open seas that goes to meet the other who is at the other shore, in a shared refusal of the fatality of an announced world, that of the exclusive kingdom of the fortunate and the powerful. The colloquia of the Academy of Latinity are proportionate to this requirement of the spirit, they give body and life to a true challenge: that of the difference.
