An International, Multidisciplinary, Multicultural Conference examining concepts of “The OTHER” from a universal, cross-cultural perspective to promote wider public dialogue about images of “Us and Them”
This event is warmly recommended by both the National Coalition for Dialog & Deliberation (NCDD) and Phi Beta Iota. It is the kind of event that every member of any kind of Human Terrain Team (HTT) and other related Human Intelligence (HUMINT) sub-disciplinary collector and first-echelon analyst could benefit from.
Technology is not a substitute for thinking. The twelve principles adopted by Phi Beta Iota are repeated below to emphasize the value that we place on the work of both the NCDD and Common Bond. Click on the Phi Beta Iota seal below to read the full discussion of the Twelve Principles by their originator Will Keepen of the Santayana Institute.
