Title: Outcast Europe
Summary
Outcast Europe is a project aiming to improve conditions for intercultural dialogue and civic participation. In a period of 18-months, it will involve 1200 citizens from 6 countries (GR, BG, MK, HU, CZ, RS) with distinct roles and policy agendas throughout the ongoing migration crisis.Prominent image theorists such as Boulding, Lipmann and Rieber stress the significance of information inflow as the main factor that determines behavior of individuals and groups. The emphasis on cultural differences between communities enhances xenophobia that leads to discrimination, thus, throwing water in the mile of nationalism. Reversely, stressing commonalities of culture and experiences enables integration. In the context of the migration crisis, this is crucial not only for maintaining EU’s image as a pioneer of human and social rights but also for addressing its own multiple challenges.Outcast Europe will: a. foster reflection on Europe’s values and historical experience; b. cultivate empathy and understanding towards“outsiders”; c. stimulate active engagement in the process of migrants’ integration. In specific, it will:-Examine the causes, processes and psychological impact of migration-Highlight experiences of host communities with migration and raise awareness of younger generations about them-Facilitate a structured debate between citizens, migrants, policy-makers & other stakeholders on potentials for socioeconomic progress resulting from the inflow of migrants and on ways to promote and channel it through collective action-Enable contact between host and migrant communities.Activities-Capacity building activity on intercultural awareness&cultural management-Collective exhibition on diachronic features of migrant experiences-Cross-sectoral policy-debate on the migration crisis-Exhibition with materials from all countries-2-day conference “From Pariahs to Assets”Methods: Non-formal learning; Participative exhibition; Survey; Structured dialogue
