ROUND TABLE I, 1st of October, at 7 p.m.: DOES PEACE HAVE A FUTURE? (in english)
”Inequality is rising within the EU, and the distrust with representational politics is expressing itself in various forms of civic unrest and generates deep polarizations at all levels of our society. We can see that Brexit endangers the Good Friday Agreement and we can conclude: our political economy can drag us into armed conflicts, uprisings and wars.”
Moderation: Alexander Nikolic (curator - Conditions of Peace) with Noa Treister (curator Conditions of Peace) , Monika Mokre (Political Scientist), Jan Niggemann (Educational Scientist), u.a.
ROUND TABLE II, 8th of October, at 5 p. m.: FIGHT FOR YOUR (HUMAN) RIGHTS? (in english)
”There is a set of liberal ideas, by some perceived as "mainstream dictatorship" on the use of language to name and label all various kind of minorities and their representation. Very often these rights, which were gained as well in civil unrests and struggles, are as well used internationally, and within the EU to identify who is and who can be part of our cultural family. These achievements are in a sharp contrast, if we take a look at how workers and migrants are treated. Will there be justice in future and how?”
Moderation: Noa Treister (curator - Conditions of Peace) with Alexander Nikolic (curator - CoP; live via Zoom from Helsinki) and students of the MA program Applied Human Rights from the University of Applied Arts Vienna,u.a.
