This lecture is a condensed summary of what usually is a five-day workshop. It is an introduction into the work of Evelin Lindner. As you see, it is divided into 2 parts. The talk highlights how globalization is interlinked with new and unprecedented psychological dynamics that call for novel solutions at all levels - macro, meso and micro levels - and in all fields of public policy.The lecture was held at the Department of Psychology at the University of Oslo in Norway (Harald Schjelderups hus, Forskningsveien 3, Auditorium 1, as part of PSYC3203 - Anvendt sosialpsykologi), on 12th January, 2011, 10.15-12.00.

Special thanks go to the Department of Psychology at the University of Oslo. Without their support, the doctoral project on humiliation that Lindner carried out between 1997 and 2001, as well as her subsequent work to establish Humiliation Studies as a global field, would have been impossible in the past, and their support will be crucial also in the future.
