Under the title a Pluralistic supplementary meeting of the VfS, there was a series of events; from lectures to panel discussions, policy Markus Barwasser alias Erwin talking to the political Cabaret performance by Frank Furry.

In addition to the professional exchange with colleagues and scholars, conversations with the authors and lecturers are of great importance.
