The Damaging Effects of Discrimination Conference 2014
The Damaging Effects of Discrimination:
Presented by Dalhousie’s Multifaith Centre Dalhousie University, Halifax Nova Scotia
The purpose for the Damaging Effects of Discrimination Conference was to expand our awareness of discrimination in our cities and how to address this problem in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world. The discussions provided an opportunity to think about discrimination in the context of the growing importance of community and its changing daily expectations by our expanding awareness of racial, lingual and religious plurality in our societies. The question as a philosopher became for me one of addressing discrimination in the context of hyper-diverse societies that are thinning out their shared moral horizons and whether this helped societies address the challenges.
