About the Event

Deep Dialogue as Peace Maker?

In his lecture Professor Hamelink proposes to conceptualise peace as "inclusive togetherness" and will argue that on a fragmented planet this can only be achieved through the pro-social conversation that he calls "deep dialogue".

The lecture will be followed by a Q&A and drinks reception.
