A democratic dialogue on immigration

Now more than ever, it is important for universities to create open, inviting spaces for dialogue and respectful exchange of ideas on contentious issues. DISHA invites you to a democratic dialogue on immigration for jobs through a respectful critical discourse

The workshop will deploy spoken and silent dialogue techniques to work with three diverse positions on immigration aimed at creating a collaborative solution. A remarkable opportunity if you wish to learn facilitation on contentious issues!
