The abstract concept of the term dignity is often exhaustedly used when it comes to value, usefulness, morality, but also reputation. What about the personal, emotional level of dignity of a refugee, a victim of rape, a handicapped toddler, but also of a convicted criminal?



The Vienna Week of Dignity will have the format of event blocks. Each day will have 3 event blocks and will take 2 hours each; consisting of a theoretical lecture by an Expert and a personal statement of an Individual with a personal story about dignity, followed up by a Discussion of those two and the Audience. Our goal is to sharpen the concept of Dignity and to put it into public perception.
