In this episode I have the delight of sharing time and (cyber)space with Evelin G. Lindner M.D., Ph.D., as we explore many different themes relating to humiliation and dignity studies, conflicts, emotions, world citizenship and the challenges facing our human family in the 21st century. For instance, how can we co-create a healthy and nurturing global society that upholds the standards of the Declaration of Human Rights¹? Lindner has dedicated her life in pursuing such questions and in our conversation she shares her personal story and how it connects to the work she does and the way she has chosen to live her life. Evelin is the Founding President of Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies, which is “a global and transdisciplinary network and fellowship of concerned academics and practitioners”, who are “committed to reducing – and ultimately help eliminating – destructive disrespect and humiliating practices all over the world”². She is also the author of several books, such as A Dignity Economy (2012) and Emotion and Conflict (2009).
