Please let us remind you:
HumanDHS is a global transdisciplinary fellowship of concerned
academics and practitioners who strive to promote dignity and transcend
humiliation. We wish to stimulate systemic change, globally and locally,
that allows mutual respect and esteem to take root and grow, thus
ending humiliating practices and breaking cycles of humiliation
throughout the world!
|Celebrating Dignity and Peace in Istanbul! |
BRAVO to everyone who contributed to the
15th Annual Conference of HumanDHS
in Istanbul, April 28-30th, 2010!
conference was a shining example of mutually dignifying, collaborative
action! Network members from more than 14 countries joined us to
co-create a truly memorable experience! All the presenters introduced
topics that inspired thoughtful and stimulating dialogue about how equal
dignity leads us to greater "Peace in Our Hearts, Peace at Home, Peace in the World."
A special thank you goes to our remarkable host, organizer, and convener,
Dr. Hayal Köksal!
Her work coordinating, facilitating, and finding sponsors for this
program was absolutely stunning! She is a genius of
"relational-cultural bridge building," making everyone feel energized
and connected throughout the program! Read more.

"Enlarging the Boundaries of Compassion," at the National Peace and
Conflict Studies Center in Dunedin, New Zealand, August 2011! We hope you can join us!
