What can Ukraine teach us about the search for human dignity in a context of conflict? Join the Ansari Institute’s Multifaith Integral Human Development Colloquium for a special conversation on Wednesday, Oct. 12. Hear insights from Taras Dobko, associate professor of philosophy and senior vice-rector at Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv, Ukraine. All are welcome. 

About the Colloquium
The colloquium aims to explore how various religious and spiritual traditions would approach the concepts and values of  (IHD). Though the concept of IHD originated in Catholic social teaching, its framing is universal and advocates believe it can be applied broadly.

In an effort to explore these possibilities, the colloquium will bring in special guests from a variety of religious traditions to discuss how their belief systems inform humanitarian, peacebuilding, and development theory and practice.

The goal of the colloquium is for participants to draw connections and expand IHD beyond its Catholic roots to become a truly global framework.
