"Human Dignity, Human Rights, and Sustainable Post-Disaster Reconstruction: Evelin Lindner's Contribution " is a video clip that was recorded on October 30, 2011, in Portland, Oregon, USA, by Linda Hartling and Evelin Lindner, for a course with the same title for Professor Adenrele Awotona's Center for Rebuilding Sustainable Communities after Disasters at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, as well as for the World Dignity University (WDU) initiative. Course Description: Understanding the intersecting dynamics of human dignity, humiliation, and human rights in today's world is crucial for those working in post-disaster reconstruction. Greater awareness of human rights ideals brings to the forefront the risk that post-disaster strategies and responses, once accepted and considered helpful, are perceived as deeply humiliating. This course will explore how globalization dramatically alters how we engage in helping relationships at all levels. It proposes that post-disaster reconstruction can be an opportunity to implement innovative and sustainable solutions that support the healing, health, and dignity of all involved in post-disaster recovery. See the chapter by Evelin Lindner "Disasters As a Chance to Implement Novel Solutions that Highlight Attention to Human Dignity," in Awotona, Adenrele (Ed.), Rebuilding Sustainable Communities for Children and their Families after Disasters: A Global Survey, chapter 21, pp. 335-358, Proceedings of the International Conference on Rebuilding Sustainable Communities for Children and Their Families after Disasters, convened by Adenrele Awotona at the College of Public and Community Service University of Massachusetts at Boston, USA, November 16-19, 2008, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing (Newcastle upon Tyne), and as e-book by MyILibrary (LaVergne, TN), 2010.
