invitation-only part of our workshop, you are warmly

the Round Tables are taken by now.) Please get in touch with us
For those who are already registered on the website and still wish to send us an abstract, a paper, or other relevant material, thank you so much for sending it along. To encourage dialogue through this workshop, we would like to upload all material to our website prior to the actual conference so participants will have the opportunity to read them in advance.
Our conferences and workshops are transdisciplinary and aim to foster dialogue and shared reflection on how to create more space for dignity in the world. Our programs always stimulate lively, thought-provoking discussions. We look forward to your support and participation in this workshop!
