After Capitalism: economy, values and stable society; Ukraine meets Europe

When: Friday, September 20, 2019 14:30 - Sunday, September 22, 2019 12:30
Where: Kiev, Ukraine

Socialism has influenced Ukrainian thinking about economy in different ways. After breaking out of the Soviet control Ukraine has been influenced largely by the capitalist system. What we have seen is that also this system has it’s limitations especially in social care and values. How can Ukraine become more European in the sense of its economy and the social values underpinning it?  The book “After Capitalism” written by Michael Schluter and Paul Mills gives an insight in the economic systems and what alternative could be visible from a Christian point of view. This publication has been translated in Ukrainian by the Foundation Democratic Initiatives (FDI), Ukraine.  For the purpose of launching this publication FDI together with Sallux organize a conference called: After Capitalism: economy, values and Stable society.  Different speakers from Ukraine and Europe discuss these topics in detail. Some of the speakers are:
