The twelfth IAPT biennial conference, the second one in South Africa, will be held from 16-20 July 2015 in Pretoria.
In view of the rich political and cultural heritage of South Africa and the historical and contemporary legacy of injustice that has so powerfully shaped this context, we decided at the Toronto conference to focus on issues of injustice, personhood and human dignity. It also provides an opportunity to explore philosophies and worldviews rooted in the (South) African context that could help to address these problems. In this conference we will explore one such worldview or spirituality that is deeply rooted in the Southern African context, namely Ubuntu.
