A very warm WELCOME
Evelin Lindner on the importance of the affective and institutional dimensions of global citizenship, reflecting on Paul Raskin's book, Journey to Earthland: The Great Transition to Planetary Civilization (Boston: Tellus Institute, 2016).
Morton Deutsch is the honorary convener of this workshop series since 2003.
Our 27th Annual Dignity Conference was WONDERFUL!
We succeeded in building very enriching "dignity relationships," alongside the traditional aim of academic conferences, namely, to share knowledge!
Have a look at www.humiliationstudies.org/whoweare/annualmeeting/27.php!
We were proud to honour Kjell Skyllstad for his life work in this conference, and to celebrate Nada Bruer Ljubišić and Tomislav Kvesić for their untiring efforts to make our conference possible!
A Very Warm Welcome
Annual Conference of Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies
Urban habitations have increasingly experienced threats and vulnerabilities to environmental disaster, in addition to unsustainable planning and development. City populations worldwide experience humiliation in a myriad of ways, ranging from systemic economic injustice to terrorism and warfare. This conference aims to create global partnerships for change and produce knowledge about the crucially important historical times we live in. Our challenge is to create a world in which people can enjoy a dignified life.
We want to express our special appreciation to Kjell Skyllstad, a longtime member of the HumanDHS Advisory Board, for his leadership in support of our 2016 HumanDHS Conference in Croatia. It will be arranged cooperatively at the Inter-University Center (ICU) in Dubrovnik with the support of the World Dignity University initiative, in collaboration with the University of Oslo, Norway, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway, and Chulalongkorn University, Thailand.
