Aristotle Anniversary Year International Symposium

Join us at the international symposium entitled Aristotle Anniversary Year: From hate speech to tolerance and understanding we are organising under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs, in partnership with the University of Piraeus and with the support of Megaron Plus.

Based on Aristotle’s Rhetoric, the symposium aims to explore the phenomenon of hate speech in the contexts of public speech, education and psychology. It will examine the various forms hate speech can take, commonly affected groups, the causes behind the rise in the phenomenon and its consequences, as well as experiences and examples of good practice from abroad.


The symposium will begin with a series of talks and discussions on Saturday 19 March 2016 and will conclude with a programme of workshops and a Living Library on Sunday 20 March 2016.

Simultaneous interpretation from/into English will be provided on the first day of the symposium.
