20-24 September 2022, Brussels, Belgium
DialoguePerspectives goes EU! In a four-day workshop, we want to connect future leaders from the field of interreligious-world view dialogue with EU policy makers and practitioners, focusing on two main fields: labour law and plurality in the workplace.
In Brussels, we will visit the EU parliament and the EU commission and get together with a selection of representatives from NGOs and strategic law-makers concerned with labour law and working to combat discrimination in the workplace. We want to focus on how different types of discrimination – targeting employees based on faith, sex, gender, race, class, sexual orientation, or ability – are addressed by EU directives and laws, and which resources there are to take action for both institutional and civil society actors.
˝The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
