For the first time in its twelve-year history, the Ikeda Forum for Intercultural Dialogue revisited a topic from a previous forum. Though the topic in question — dignity — was addressed just last year, it proved so rich and multivalent that there was little sense of repetition. To the extent that there was repetition, it only reinforced the truth that dignity is central to our efforts toward peace and well-being. Called “The Practice of Dignity: What It Means Today,” the forum featured three speakers: Meenakshi Chhabra of Lesley University; Gail Thomas of Soka University of America; and Peter Stearns of George Mason University.
