is a forum for people who are engaged in scholarly discussion about the
understanding and emancipation of mutual relationships between children or
adolescents and adults.
this context, these relationships are intended to be viewed from an unbiased,
non-judgmental perspective and in relation to the human rights of both the young
and adult partners.
During the Ice Age, a lot
of animals froze to death. The porcupines recognised their predicament and
decided to form a group. Thus
they would be able to keep one another warm and to protect themselves. However,
by being so close together, they wounded each other with their quills, and so
each went his own way.
So did we by having our
yearly meeting on one of the Greek islands at the end of May 2005. The report is
in this Newsletter, and consequently public. You can follow the discussions
there. Maybe the place inspired us to discuss the meaning of religion and
spirituality in our lives.
Remarkably enough, one of
the earlier Ipce Meetings, 2001 in Berlin, had a second public report: from an
infiltrator, a Finnish journalist, who reported in a TV show. Because not all of
you read Finnish, a Finnish member has translated the text we publish here.

The report will be
followed by a number of articles, some leading from the discussions at the
meeting, others relating to recent events. An interesting aspect of the Jackson
case is not only the trial itself, but also especially the way society speaks
about the case. Society’s approach is, more or less, in terms of 'stranger
danger', regarding such a person as an odd and deviant man. Is deviance from the
mean a mental distortion? Read the articles about the APA discussion in May
2005. As usual, a list of available documents ends this Newsletter.
As said earlier: the 'real Newsletter' is the section "What is New?" on the Ipce web site.
