Care and Diversity Chained hopes. Conflict and peace as an everyday experience for women seeking refuge
What does peace mean for people, who are on the move, who fled their home country in search for a better future?
04.03.2024, 6pm–7.30pm – BFH, Department of Social Work, Hallerstrasse 10, Bern (auditorium)
What does peace mean for people, who are on the move, who fled their home country in search for a better future in Europe? An exploratory research project at the University of Basel posed this question to five women, coming from different countries at different stages of the asylum procedure. It helps to understand peace as an everyday experience, as a process that takes place somewhere, and that social workers can contribute to.
We invite you to join us in dialogue!

The series of events explores the question of where spaces of shared concern, solidarity and solidarity exist. How did they come about, who is involved and how, and what significance do various aspects of diversity have? To what extent is caring for others associated with privileges and what dependencies arise from this? Where are there spaces of solidarity in the city? What role can religion and spirituality play in a society based on solidarity? How can dialogue between the generations succeed? Where are there spaces of solidarity with refugees or older people? Where are the challenges and limits?
The Care and Diversity event series is a module of the Bachelor's degree programme in Social Work that is open to students of other degree programmes as well as interested members of the public. The event takes place on nine monday evenings on nine different topics.
The aim of the series of events is to address various interested parties such as students, professionals and the general public and to get them talking to each other about the topic of care and diversity.
