Call for papers
We would like to point to the fact that the call for papers is now open and invite and encourage you to register online at our Congress Website:

La Maison de l’UNESCO was chosen as the hosting residence for the Congress because this great place of «intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind» is well in line with the themes of universalism and humanitarian benevolence that the organizers wished topromote. It is near the Eiffel Tower and reveals a wonderful view on the historical side of Paris as well as at its prosperity of art.
We recommend an early booking of your accommodation in the city.
