Winning the Human Race Against Time: A Conversation with HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan
Wilson Center, Tuesday, June 28, 2022, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM ET

West Asia-North Africa is in a race against time. Within the next thirty years, increasing air pollution and climate change-induced heatwaves and droughts will push the region closer to uninhabitability, triggering unprecedented levels of human insecurity and large-scale displacement. In the face of rapid environmental degradation and intractable conflicts, the pursuit of a dignity-based approach to security becomes vital. Wilson Center President & CEO Ambassador Mark Green spoke with HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan about pressing climate change concerns in the region and need to implement a 'human dignity' approach to solutions.

NORA (Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research) Conference 2022
Centre for Gender Research and Department of Psychology, University of Oslo, Norway
'Nordic feminist and gender research has gone through significant developments in its relatively short life. From Nordic Summer Schools and interdisciplinary research and teaching networks in the 1970s and 1980s, across the institutionalisation of women and gender studies in the 1990s, to the expansion into a wide range of subfields in the 2000s. These subfields are committed to diverging epistemic-ontological orientations, themes and political projects/visions, and express increasing perceptions of gender studies as trans- or post disciplinary. Nordic feminist and gender research develop in and through dialogues between different subfields and orientations'... [read more]

Unity in Humanity? Where Two Hands Meet
The Beshara 50th Anniversary Lecture of the Beshara Trust
Given by His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan
Introduced and chaired by Hugh Tollemache
Delivered online from London on 29th May 2022

'Love can only consist in failure on the fallacious assumption that it is a relationship. It is not. It is a realisation of truth'. (Alain Badiou)
Truth should be adhered to in presenting historical facts, while at the same time concentrating on the values of love, peace and respect, so that we can raise a generation that believes in coexistence with others and respect of their values. This is a project that requires our concerted efforts in order to contribute to the making of our history based on dialogue, cooperation and integration, rather than on conflict and clashes.

The Human Climate: Carol Smaldino with Guest Evelin Lindner and Linda Hartling

Carol Smaldino's The Human Climate: "The human climate as I see it is the human atmosphere in which we live: the ways we solve or don’t solve, the host of problems in our midst. Emotions, I saw (as I wrote my own book The Human Climate: Facing the Divisions Inside Us and Between Us, 2018) were driving our actions and decisions. They were pushing us to extremes, and they were also often obliterating the capacity to think or care. Carl Jung’s theory of the shadow: Emotions we hide, out of our own dread and shame, become the stuff of projection onto others, either demonizing and degrading them or putting them on pedestals. Or instead those hidden feelings could push us to explode or implode, sinking us into psychological dirt. Yet still they could render us numb and detached. The situation might well stay wretched if we can’t get a handle on the deep feelings that might just keep us divided and paralyzed to the point that we remain unable to heal the divides, or to manage the resolution to fight for social and economic justice and against climate change."

'How Female is Diplomacy?': 22nd Network Consolidation Programme on Female Diplomacy
Foreign Service Academy, Training for International Diplomats
Hybrid event at the Federal Foreign Office 11013
Berlin Germany
Commitment of the SPD, Greens and FDP in the German coalition agreement of 2021: “Together with our partners, we want to strengthen the rights, resources and representation of women and girls worldwide and promote social diversity in the spirit of a feminist foreign policy. We want to appoint more women to international leadership positions and ambitiously implement and further develop the National Action Plan of UN Resolution 1325”

Session 5, 12/04/2022 – Change on the Grassroot Level
• Sanam Naraghi Anderlini, MBE, Founder & CEO of International Civil Society Action Network (ICAN)
• Evelin Lindner, Founding President of Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies and Co-founder of the World Dignity University initiative (WDU)
•  Juliana Hernández de la Torre, Feminista. Directora Ejecutiva de Artemisas, coordinadora de la campaña PARIDAD YA, de la Red Nacional de Incidencia Política Nosotras Ahora, y co-coordinadora de la Red de Innovación Política de América Latina

Questions formulated by Marleen Ziegs:
How do you view the representation of women in the field you are closest to you? If the representation is not satisfactory, what can be done to enhance it?
How can we promote and encourage women?
What has to be done on the grassroot level?
How can civil society actors contribute?
What are your visions for the advancement of women?
How are you contributing to advancing gender equality?
What were some of the stereotypes you faced as a woman in your career and how did you challenge them?
A Feminist Foreign Policy does not only mean a quantitative increase of women in (foreign) policy, but also has a qualitative dimension. Can you say something about that?
And why is it called a “feminist” foreign policy and not a “humanist” instead. What is your take on that?
How do you think patriarchal structures influence your work? What can be done to identify and dismantle them?
How does the implementation of a FFP in certain countries impact your work?
What normative and structural conditions need to be in place to accelerate the promotion of gender equality and women's empowerment worldwide?
What is your self-care routine?

Since 1992 the Federal Foreign Office has been offering young diplomats from all over the world the chance to improve their professional skills under the motto 'Diplomacy by Networking'. While initially providing support for the rebuilding of young democracies in Central and Eastern Europe, the international programmes of the Federal Foreign Office have since then continued to expand with growing success. By now, the Federal Foreign Office's Foreign Service Academy brings together young diplomats from around the world in Berlin. The aim of this training initiative is to perceive foreign policy as an opportunity for cooperation and as a basis upon which to build the foundation for a working partnership on global matters. This investment not only helps secure future dialogue, peace and human rights, but also lays the foundation for a worldwide network.

The War on Ukraine: Time for a Feminist Foreign Policy? by Eirliani ('Lin') Abdul Rahman, A Harvard Kennedy School Student Publication, 8th March 2022: ...suppose we could reimagine a world where we stop looking at security from a militarized lens. Instead, women, children and the most vulnerable in society are central to decision-making and their needs accounted for in every aspect of policy-making. This approach, called feminist foreign policy (FFP), may hold the key to getting to the roots of conflicts and challenging the current neoliberal underpinnings of international political discourse. The stark difference between realpolitik and the FFP as frameworks is that the latter brings the welfare of the vulnerable to the fore.

Human Dignity and Humiliation Dialogue: An Interdisciplinary Seminar
Evelin Lindner, PhDs, MD, and Linda Hartling, PhD, WISR Faculty
10 am to 12 pm Pacific Time
through the Western Institute for Social Research
in cooperation with the World Dignity University initiative

***Course Description***
We are in an era where more and more people live in “echo chambers,” in “bubbles,” and the “walls” of these bubbles get ever thicker, harder, and less permeable. As these walls harden, as the confrontation between “us” and “the” becomes less forgiving, cycles of tit-for-tat humiliation are set in motion that become ever more intense and dangerous. Moreover, “Hitlers” of this world grasp this situation as an opportunity to sow even more hatred and instigate even more conflict.
This seminar will examine the cycles of humiliation and systemic humiliation that have risen to new levels today. Clashes of civilisations are harmless compared with clashes of humiliation, because humiliation closes doors for cooperation that otherwise would stay open. In the absence of visionary leadership of the calibre of a Nelson Mandela, cycles of humiliation have the power to turn our relationships, our communities, and the global village into war zones.
Humanity faces enormous global threats — from the destruction of our ecospheres to the degradation of our sociospheres — and we must learn to cooperate locally and globally if we want to address these challenges. For meaningful cooperation to emerge and succeed, there is nothing more important than halting and preventing cycles of humiliation and systemic humiliation.
Join us in this seminar to deepen and broaden your understanding of one the greatest obstacles to cultivating mutually dignifying collaboration in the world today. Dr. Evelin Lindner will introduce her research on the roots of humiliation through a video presentation that will be followed by an opportunity to share experiences and engage in dialogue. We invite participants to join us in curiosity and reflective conversation to build ideas to strengthen constructive action in our work and in the world.
