"From Altruism to Partnership :
Exchanging Ideas Exploring the Challenges for Human Development?"
From August 27th to 31st, 2012
web site: http://WWW.ATSDH.NET
About the Conference:
The 4th International Summer Institute (27th-31 August,2012) WWW.ATSDH.NET will focus on partnership, through the intersection of knowledge to debate its challenges for human development.
In the field of social action, health and humanitarian aid, the challenge of altruism is to take into consideration its close connection with profit sharing, the transmission of knowledge, reciprocity of services and competence exchange. Altruism takes its legal form from the partnership contract and it allows an active association of various stakeholders, who, maintaining their own independence, agree to share their efforts to achieve a common goal related to a problem or a clearly identified need in which, by virtue of their respective missions, they have an interest, a responsibility, a motivation, and even an obligation to work and build this collective action detailed in the present time.
Although our organizations encourage a broad spectrum of topics at our conferences, we especially encourage papers, posters, panel sessions, roundtables, and workshops that speak directly to the following topics. We welcome submissions on all aspects related to the following:
This summer institute will focus on three axes:

Working together, partnership is a mode of intervention among others
* Partnership and collective action
* The working process in partnership
* Partnership between the health and the medico-social fields
* Partnership and Territory
From the interest to be a partner and beyond the pragmatist approach
Two approaches co-exist and sometimes clash:
One utilitarian would hold that a partnership must guarantee the co-existence of different interests of knowledge broadly and specifically defined.
The ethical challenge of partnership
The ethical challenge of partnership brings into focus the necessary confidence in which there must be a room to support human development. Partnership cannot be decreed; however, it is built slowly by means of working together with partners outside the institutions, incited by logics and motivations different from ours (the presence of constrains and pains). This is a test of hospitality measuring the ability to accept differences resulted from modalities of joint action.
