Feindselige Blicke. Beschimpfungen, nicht nur online, sondern im Alltag. Rassismus gegenüber Menschen, die als muslimisch wahrgenommen werden, ist trauriger Alltag. Doch wie wirken sich Ablehnung, Hass und Gewalt auf das Leben von Musliminnen und Muslimen beziehungsweise auf Menschen, die von anderen als solche wahrgenommen werden, aus? Und schließlich: Wie kann antimuslimischem Rassismus begegnet werden?

Dies wird im Rahmen der Tagung, die von der Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung veranstaltet wird, thematisiert.

Referenten sind u.a.:

  • Dr. Floris Biskamp, Universität Tübingen
  • Professor Dr. Beate Küpper, Fachhochschule Niederrhein

Themen sind u.a.:

  • Medien und Antimuslimischer Rassismus
  • Gender und antimuslimischer Rassismus
  • Strategien zur Bekämpfung von antimuslimischem Rassismus

Die Veranstaltung richtet sich an Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter der schulischen und außerschulischen politischen Jugend- und Erwachsenenbildung, aus der Sozialarbeit und aus der Beratung; Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeitern von Behörden und Polizei sowie aus der Justiz; Journalistinnen und Journalisten; Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler.

Die Anmeldung kann bis zum 18.06.2019 vorgenommen werden.
