Event type: Conference

Organized by: European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS)

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Official website of the conference: http://agbueurope.org/programs/a-europe-of-diasporas/ 

What brings the Roma, Jewish and Armenian Diasporas together? 

The conference addresses questions such as: Is heritage important because it generates visibility and social recognition? Is it important as a factor of unity within a community? Is it important to help new generations connect with their identity and cultural heritage? How much do we need remembrance and recognition of the genocides as a fundament for a process of reconciliation with European societies? How does heritage and remembrance relate to current threats and challenges in Europe, such as racism, anti-Semitism, antigypsyism, and nationalism?
