All countries, regions and institutions are ultimately built on a degree of consensus, on a collective commitment to a concept, belief or value system. This consensus is continuously rephrased and reinvented through a narrative of cohesion and challenged by expressions of discontent and discord.

The history of the Low Countries is characterized by both a striving for consensus and eruptions of discord both internally or through outside challenges. The ALCS Biennial conference aims to explore consensus and discord in a Low Countries context along and across broad cultural, linguistic and historical lines.
