Careif Position Statement on STIGMA

At the root of conflict and stigma we find competition between different value systems and the threat of change to our collective or individual identity. In an era of unprecedented social change, as migration and mass media blur traditional boundaries, it is vital that we recognise this process of stigmatisation and embrace the potential for social enrichment through a process of dialogue.careif PS Stigma
