Organisational Cultures of Caring - Requirements of "Caring Institutions"

In which society do we want to live? - Aging, worries and good coexistence until the end

Winter Semester 2021/22, Thu, 6:45-9:00 pm, Lecture hall: Regilind und Irmingard von Admont (HS 47.01), ground floor

Caring societies need caring organizations, or, as Avishai Margalit states in his "Policy of Dignity," "organizations that do not humiliate people." Joan Tronto speaks of the fact that for a good care culture in institutions it is important that questions of power are addressed and that there is a “political space,” which she also describes as the place where ethical conflicts and contradicting needs can be dealt with. “Caring Institutions” are therefore organizations that know and consider the needs of all members (affected people and employees). In the winter semester 2021/22, the course will be linked to the lecture series Religion on Thursday "In which society do we want to live? - Aging, worries and good coexistence until the end."
