Dignity Road Report* - April, 2016

A Very Warm Welcome

Annual Conference of Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies 

Cities at Risk - From Humiliation to Dignity

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.

If you would like to join us, please submit your introductory information (e.g., contact information, CV, or papers) to:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thank you for all you do to create a world of equal dignity for all!
