Dignity Press and World Dignity University Press
are projects of Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies
Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies (HumanDHS) is a global transdisciplinary network and collaborative community of concerned scholars, researchers, educators, practitioners, creative artists, and others. We wish to stimulate systemic change, globally and locally, to open space for dignity, mutual respect and esteem to take root and grow. HumanDHS is also the founding organizer of the World Dignity University initiative.
Since 2012, we publish books related to the work of our affiliates. As indicated by our logo, we look at human dignity from a global perspective. Our authors are from all over the world, and our books address human dignity and humiliation from a variety of perspectives. Please select the menus above or click on the cover images to see the book details.
This book critiques not just neoliberal economics but also the fundamental separation among humans that all economic theories presuppose. This book celebrates community-based approaches now blossoming on all continents. Unbounded organizing, together with moral and ethical realism, offers a field-tested philosophy and methodology to provide dignity for all while nurturing the biosphere.
In this book, Victoria Fontan questions the pre-established assumptions that exist in peace and conflict studies, and brings forward an alternative epistemology that relates to non-conventional initiatives for peace that exist in various parts of the world. At first, we must realize that we are powerless in facing the destruction and injustices that we invariably bring with our peace.
“I have decided to write a short book, addressed to educated people of good will who see the need for paradigmatic change. I propose a philosophy in the old-fashioned sense of articulating a synthesis of the social and natural science that provides an overall framework for deciding what to do.”
— Howard Richards
