(Anti-)racism and critical interventions in Europe – Social sciences, policy developments and social movements
19-20 February 2013, Auditório do Centro de Informação Urbana de Lisboa, Picoas Plaza, Rua do Viriato | Lisboa

(programa aqui)

In contemporary Europe, we are witnessing the vanishing of anti-racism from political cultures and academic discourses, in favour of an approach that intervenes on immigrants and minorities themselves via public rhetoric on integration.

This conference will thus bring together an international community engaging in debates on racism and anti-racism to discuss the analytical approaches and main findings of the European research project TOLERACE – The semantics of tolerance and (anti-)racism in Europe: public bodies and civil society in comparative perspective, coordinated by the Centre for Social Studies.

The debate will focus on key issues that bring about an in-depth analysis of racism and anti-racism, such as the historical legacies of national formation processes and colonialism, contemporary political developments in European contexts, and the role of academia and social organisations in policy advice.

The event is intended as an opportunity to engage with policymakers, academics, political activists, journalists and stakeholders at local, national and European levels, discussing the difficulties of addressing racism in contemporary European contexts, as well as to propose a way forward by identifying approaches and key areas in which a sound debate on anti-racism can be constructed.
