Solidarity 40

To mark 40th anniversary of foundation of the Polish Independent Self-Governing Trade Union “Solidarnosc” in September 1980 the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building is launching Solidarity 40 – a series of lectures, seminars and publications.

Solidarity 40  will bring together academics, historians, philosophers, theologians, social activists, policy makers and legislators to explore the concept of solidarity in four thematic areas: history, international relations, theology and philosophy, and politics and society.

The first Solidarity 40  webinar will take place on Wednesday, 26 August from 3pm to 4.30pm and will include contributions from:

• Lord Alderdice (Chair)
• Professor Norman Davies FBA
• Professor Kalypso Nicolaidis, University of Oxford
• Professor Marek Cichocki, Political Theology
• Dr Donna Hicks, Harvard University

During the webinar we will reflect on the idea of solidarity in the historical, political, philosophical and social contexts.

This project is coordinated by the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building in partnership with St. Benet’s Institute, St. Benet’s Hall, University of Oxford, and a philosophical yearbook Political Theology in Warsaw and supported by the Polish Cultural Institute in London.
