Prague, May 2013

Prague, June 2014


Dear friends,


We are happy to invite you to the annual conference of the Association of Friends

of PTF which will take place on November 14-16, 2014 in Prague. The theme of our meeting will be “Where is the exit? Europe’s guilt and ways to reconciliation”.


In the programmatic part of our meeting we focus on the question of patterns of behavior of our European civilization towards others. Is our current way of treating non-Western people creating unequal relations and injustice? Are we able to reset our way of acting? Is it possible to establish reconciliation with those we forced into a position of dependence and oppression?
