The Open Dialogue Series is a project that examines philosophy and theory through a multi-level approach. Including various stakeholders of society, a plethora of approaches are integrated while discussing and negotiating ways to actively engage citizen participation. The series encourages the people of Ireland and other countries to speak up to bring pressing issues to light, such as integration, multiculturalism, “Islamphobia,” and the mass migration crisis in Europe.
Global Peace Foundation Ireland (GPF-Ireland) created the Open Dialogue Series in collaboration with Mary Immaculate College (MIC), so Irish citizens could have a public forum to discuss and propose solutions to issues of today. GPF-Ireland and MIC believe that dynamic conversation can lead to potential solutions and thus dialogue among one another is crucial.
The Open Dialogue Series allows policy prescriptions to be diagnosed, critically examined, and thoroughly discussed to create optimal solutions for key issues in Ireland.
