Research on Transformative Conferencing and Dialogue

by Anthony Judge

1. Transformative conferencing and dialogue

Following the work of the UIA's earlier series of International Congresses on Congress Organization, which focused on meeting logistics, a series of studies have been made of the psycho-social aspects of communication in conferences. The focus is on need for a new form of transformative conferencing.
