You are invited to the UG Meet & Greet event "Perspectives on polarization"

During this event, different perspectives on polarization will be shared. In various panel sessions, we will discuss the role PhD candidates, early career researchers as well as (junior) policy makers and other societal actors can play in understanding and approaching polarization.

The programme includes keynote speakers Prof. Sjoerd Beugelsdijk, who will discuss his book 'De verdeelde Nederlanden (The divided Netherlands)' and Michel Öz, MSc from the police union, who will share experiences from the day-to-day experience of policy in practice. Moreover, there will be panel discussions with junior and senior researchers and policy makers, as well as a networking session. For more information about the event and where to register please see the webpage .

The event is aimed at young researchers and representatives of governmental organizations, entrepreneurs, companies and non-profit organizations with specific interest in the societal impacts of polarization and opportunities to build bridges between parties at opposite ends of an issue.
