Refugees and Humiliation Project (alphabetical)
Terrorism and Humiliation Project (alphabetical)

The research branch of Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies (HumanDHS) aims at encouraging research related to dignity and humiliation. We wish to contribute to the capacity of people to build peaceful societies and be mindful of how humiliation may disrupt the social fabric, and how social cohesion may be sustained by preventing humiliation from occurring. You are invited to develop ideas and projects that aim at dignifying our world, and preventing and healing humiliation. We wish to harness and nurture everybody's expertise for our HumanDHS research activities, create cross-fertilization and synergy, and hope that our efforts will grow organically from our discussions and meetings!
