Era of Confrontation series

As part of Tiedekulma's Crazy World series in September 2019, Risto Kunelius, Emilia Palonen and Juha Herkman took part in a discussion moderated by Robert Sundman.

The worlds are moving away and differentiating. Understanding different perspectives and having a genuine discussion seem to be even more difficult. Humanisation and images of enemies deepen the confrontation, where the most important thing is to question the demands of the “other”. How has confrontation become commonplace? Does the voice of different people be heard in a polarised and fragmented public?

The discussion (in Finnish) is below. The video inserts on polarisation (with Venezuela presented in Finnish and Poland, Romania and Turkey presented in English) are also available separately on the News & Events page.
