“Keynote papers”: ongoing reflection

This event was the pinnacle of a long process of vibrant reflection, from which several texts – termed “keynote papers” – which have been discussed in the course of several workshops, where specialists in their respective fields, both from academia and practitioners, were able to give their inputs. The results and conclusions from this intense process will be presented during the Conference, and later published in book form. Stay tuned!
