Public Talk by Cees J. Hamelink — Deep Dialogue as Peace Maker?
October 21, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
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.
