The following bibliography lists the documents, publications and papers submitted by participants to the International Encounter. Unfortunately, as there were so many documents, it has not been possible to include all of them on this list. We have tried to select those that focus on the main theme of the Encounter: Democracy, Human Rights and the Role of Women in a Interdependent World.
