About the conference series:

This is the third in the acclaimed series of Analysis and Activism conferences organised under the auspices of the International Association for Analytical Psychology. It is no exaggeration to say that the need for creative and imaginative approaches to the social and political problems the world faces is urgent. The conference will present new and fresh Jungian approaches to the social and political domains, but there will also be a chance to explore how the contributions have evolved since the first two conferences in London in 2014 and Rome in 2015. The programme of invited speakers contains some well-known activists and writers alongside some relative newcomers.
