The Shared Discourse

The international network is building together a shared discourse on culture, the arts, social engagements, ecological awareness, and sustainability.

In this section, shared texts are elaborated collectively by the network members. The wiki allows members to change the common text. Ultimately, an agreement will be found on elements of shared discourse. (Please use the ‘conversation’ section below for discussing topics and issues in a more individual fashion.)

  • Goals of the international network
  • add here another page
  • etc.

The Ongoing Conversation

Members of the international network are engaged, ever since the Lueneburg conference in late March 2007, in a lively exchange on the topics related to the network’s area of concern.

In this section, this exchange finds its full expression, and is organized (as much as possible) into thematic categories, so as to ease the reading and communication process for all members.

  • a conversation about being a migrant ...
  • etc.
