Is dignity a value, an uplifting façade to be invoked in sermons and preambles to constitutions, or is it the foundational value, from which human rights in general are to be derived? In his book “Dignity: Its History and Meaning”, Michael Rosen (Professor of Government, Harvard University) raises these questions. In exploring their answers, he also addresses another important issue: What is the place of dignity in politics? Is it a goal of political action or can it be part of political action itself? If there is a “politics of dignity”, is there also a “politics of indignity”? What is the relationship between the two?

The event is free and open to the public.
