Relation to authority and the restorative approach in Eastern-Europe/Romania

International Conference 2021 

The Faculty of Economics, Socio-Human Sciences and Engineering, Miercurea Ciuc, Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania, along with the Pedagogical and Resource Center of Harghita County and the "Apáczai Csere János" Teacher Training Center, Harghita county,  organizes a trilingual international conference in Miercurea Ciuc between 2-4 September 2021. The topic of the conference is our relationship to authority.

Three decades after the regime change, authority and our relation to it still bear the  communist-era signs of fear, distrust and subservience to government notices, at both individual and community levels. While we would like to function differently, we often do not understand the behavioral patterns of younger generations, and (sometimes) perceive them as disrespectful. What do we need in order to function differently? What types of behavioral patterns are operational in other societies? Where and how do a new approach and mentality change better suited for humanity manifest themselves at a societal level? What roles do individuals and institutions play in implementing social change? We plan to think together and to learn from each other along the lines of these questions at the conference. Our goal is to meet each other as local, regional and international, formal and informal community members, to familiarize ourselves with the restorative approach, to promote its practice.

We are seeking proposals for plenary presentations as well as small group workshops in three languages (English, Hungarian, Romanian) in the fields of networks, education, and justice.
