Research on safe space for real conversations

Over the past few months, Maria, Jelle, Tara and Ishar from University College Utrecht took part in 4 dialogues and interviewed some participants to answer questions about whether dialogues can stimulate social change and inclusion. They were impressed and intrigued by the approach in creating a safe space for participants to share their thoughts and opinions freely without judgment. They would also like to share some thoughts on the participation of diverse people, in addition to the importance of creating a safe, conducive environment for sharing thoughts and beliefs in a dialogue setting, especially in such a tough time. For a better understanding of the research and sharing ideas on trustworthy and more diverse dialogues please join the workshop.
