2nd German-American-Israeli Comparative Social Cohesion Forum "Between Cohesion and Coercion"

April 17, 2019

The Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ); the Ted Arison Family Foundation (TAFF) and Humanity in Action convened in Israel for the second Comparative Social Cohesion Forum in February. The first forum found these groups coming together in Berlin in the summer of 2017.

The subject "Between cohesion and social coercion" proved a rich and relevant field for multiple perspectives to be shared collaboratively. Each of the three groups - cohorts from Germany, Israel and the United States - provided valuable insights from various professional fields and organizations. It sought to encourage thought-leaders and social actors from Germany, Israel and the US to explore the complex and contested relationship between social cohesion and coercion.

 

Senior Fellows and Board members of Humanity in Action represented the US cohort, including:

  • Michael Brickner, Ohio State Director of All Voting is Local, Senior Fellow (Senior Fellow | Amsterdam 2002)
  • Dr. Judith Goldstein, Humanity in Action, Executive Director and Founder
