Bereits in der Antike und im Mittelalter gab es vereinzelt Versuche von Seiten der Obrigkeit, die materielle Not seiner Bürger oder Untertanen zu lindern. Dahinter stand der Gedanke, Unruhen und Aufstände zu verhindern und für politische Stabilität zu sorgen.
Der Entwicklung zum modernen Sozialstaat liegen die gesellschaftlichen Umwälzungen im Zeitalter der Industrialisierung zu Grunde. Wir kennen in Europa verschiedene Varianten des Wohlstandes. Es geht immer um Gerechtigkeit, Solidarität, sozialen Frieden und Eigenverantwortung.
Viele Herausforderungen
Je nach politischer Einstellung soll die soziale Sicherheit auf unterschiedliche Weise erreicht werden: Der Staat garantiert den Wohlstand oder der Staat und der Markt bürgen für Wohlstand. Die Bevölkerungsexplosion führt zu riesigen Problemen wirtschaftlich, politisch, gesellschaftlich und ethisch. Die finanzielle Krise und Überschuldung vieler Länder gefährden das Wohlfahrtssystem. In den industrialisierten Ländern gilt es den erreichten Stand zu sichern.

Social Security - a challenge of the Future - 12th Dialogue on Science - October 15th to 17th 2013

As early as in the Ancient World and the Middle Ages, there were scattered attempts of the authorities to reduce material deprivation of their citizens or common people. The idea behind was to avoid unrest and uprising and to foster political stability.
Social changes during industrialization led to the development of modern welfare states. In Europe, there are different types of welfare. However, it is always about justice, solidarity, social peace and personal responsibility. Depending on political affiliation, social security can be reached by different means: either states guarantee welfare or states and markets ensure welfare. Population explosion has caused enormous economic, political, social and ethical problems. And the financial crisis and over-indebtedness of many countries have jeopardized welfare systems. In industrialized countries, the task is to ensure the current levels.

The 12th Dialog on Science addresses these challenges and the future of welfare states. The conference in October 2013 analyzes the development and different forms of welfare states, examines the current social realities in the European context in terms of generational relations, family living environments, youth unemployment, and creates the prospects for future developments of welfare states.
With this conference, Academia Engelberg also commemorates Dr. Hans-Ulrich Doerig, former member of the foundation council, who died on November 25, 2012. He decisively influenced the choice of this year’s conference topic.

Challenging Democracy - 9th Dialogue on Science, 13 – 15 October, 2010

Nowadays, democracy is regarded almost all over the world as the only correct system of government. The people’s participation is often requested to ultimately prove the correctness of the system – as a final legitimation. Democracy in its many forms – parliamentary, presidential, direct or indirect, in a republic or as part of a monarchy – is considered to be the non plus ultra of political organization. It is necessary to spread this democracy among as many peoples around the globe as possible.

The 10th Dialogue on Science of the Academia Engelberg Foundation has dealed with "Personalized Medicine". Soon, mankind will be able to link not only its personal genetic code but also its personal health data with medical research.

Such developments will enhance personal diagnosis and therapy. Patients will then have the option to administrate their health data themselves and to play an active role in medical research.

Violence in Human Society: 8th Dialogue on Science, 14 – 16 October, 2009

Our views of what violence is are distorted because of the traditional approach to violence as a phenomenon in everyday life. The use and threat of physical and emotional violence against individuals or groups include the use of sheer force as well as the powers of self-assertion in relations of power and control. In a broader sense, violence can be found in all social classes around the world.

Violence affects all of us in one way or another. A lot of people seek shelter and security behind closed doors and shuttered windows and avoid dangerous places. Others do not have means to escape. The danger of violence, however, is also behind doors, hidden from the public. The lives of those who live in the middle of wars and conflicts are marked by violence. According to a report carried out by the World Health Organization (WHO) in the year 2003, 1.6 million people lose their life due to violence every year. An unknown number of people are negatively affected by violence in a way that is not always noticeable.

Causes of violence

The causes and justifications of violence are manifold. Social circumstances such as financial situation, level of socialization and cultural context play an important role. Human beings are also characterized by their biographical integration and their subjective perception of different situations when dealing, for example, with peer pressure, frustration and aggression. The influence of the media must not be underestimated. Especially interactive media such as internet, computer games, movies and television often convey a wrong idea concerning role models.
