FORUM FOR DISCUSSION ABOUT HISTORY

NEW PATHS IN HISTORICAL RESEARCH

What does health have to do with history or human rights? How can people develop an identity and live together despite their very different experiences and historical backgrounds?

The importance of the BUXUS STIFTUNG's third research field lies in its innovative contribution to a conception of history that promotes responsibility within the context of the ongoing growth crises of the globalized world.

Health is a human right associated with the responsibility we take for ourselves and others. With its forum for discussion about history and its research into history and human rights, the foundation is ensuring that historiography returns to one of its original tasks – providing support for all human beings.

The current trend toward success stories and the commercialization of all areas of life is contrasted with a historiography of human survival designed to strengthen individual capabilities and assume positions of responsibility.
