“Responsibility vs Populism”

October 2 - 4, 2019

Lviv


Responsibility vs Populism is the topic of this year’s Ecumenical Social Week, which was conducted in Lviv for the twelfth time.

The Forum is traditionally initiated by the Institute of Ecumenical Studies at the Ukrainian Catholic University, with the support of the Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv Polytechnic National University, Lviv Regional State Administration, Lviv Regional Council, and Lviv City Council.

Nowadays, Ukraine is at the crossroads of its choice, and the purpose of our Forum is to discuss the subject of Responsibility vs Populism. As Metropolitan Andrei Sheptytskyi said: a Christian is obliged to preserve God’s law not only in private but also in political and public life. Thus, the laity cannot stand aside from the challenges that each society is facing in specific socio-political and historical circumstances. This is especially true for the young generation, which is a criterion for development and a bearer of social relations. Therefore, we proposed to dedicate the 12th Ecumenical Social Week to a discussion of the topic of responsibility towards ourselves and the manifestations of populism. During the Forum, we tried to find answers to these questions: Can Ukrainians be responsible for their actions and realize their dignity? What generates populism? Is it possible for a country to develop without populism?
