The initiative belonged to NGO Centre for Tolerance, the manager of which is Svetlana Haroutyunyan, a lecturer from the above mentioned Faculty. The activities of NGO are supported by Jewish Diaspora.
Our goal is the development of the institute of tolerance in Armenia. And as any new idea is brought to life by youth, we have made a decision to organize the training activities just in their area.
According to her students interpretations will help to find the way to develop this concept in Armenia.
The reports, presented at the conference made it clear that there is no any definite formula for the tolerance, and there is no equivalent for this word in Armenian.
The following definitions were given on this issue: tolerance- means respect towards the rights of the others, realized cooperation between people, shared respect, complex of values of civil society and social norms, which is common for all nations and the art of living for people with different opinions.
The tolerance must be studied at all our faculties, - says Rajny Avagyan, a 4th year student from YSU Faculty of Philosophy and Psychology.
This student states that this subject must not just be limited by scientific approach, as we deal with the factor of tolerance at any level of human relations.
Representatives of four different IHE of our republic were present at this conference with the students of YSU Faculty of Philosophy and Psychology.
