Event Details

The world too often feels intractably polarized along lines of identity. Vandalism, extremism, terrorism, inequality, refugee crisis. How should we respond? Who are we?

Welcome to spend an evening discussing the book In the Name of Identity: Violence and the Need to Belong, by the Lebanese-born French writer Amin Maalouf together with Stockholm+Acumen at Impact HUB, in central Stockholm.

Maalouf’s In the Name of Identity does not offer easy answers. Yet his writing serves as a powerful exploration of the multiple dimensions of identity, the roots of violence and tribalism, and the value of embracing multiple allegiances and affiliations. Please join us in this important global conversation.

You will receive a downloadable version of the text a few days before the course starts. The more you dig into it, the more you take home from our evening together.
