Since May 2021 INTAR is hosting a series of online dialogues on various aspects of alternatives and rights-based supports.

Handover Dialogue
UN Special Rapporteur on the right to health

This dialogue focuses on the need to reframe dominant punitive and biomedical models of community safety and well-being and suggest possible futures: state control of populations through medicalization, coercion and social surveillance; or participatory, rights-based approaches that place social justice at its core.



Why are there so few rights-based institutions and alternatives to psychiatry in Germany. What does it take to change this?

The first INTAR Dialogue took place on May 11th 2021.
