In June 2015, the 25th Annual Dignity Conference took place in Kigali, Rwanda, see www.humiliationstudies.org/whoweare/annualmeeting/25.php. In March, however, it seemed that the conference could not happen.

The reason was that Evelin Lindner's doctoral dissertation, titled The Psychology of Humiliation: Somalia, Rwanda / Burundi, and Hitler's Germany (UiO, 2000), seemingly, was misinterpreted as condoning genocide as an understandable and thus legitimate outcome of humiliation.
