Re-ACT - Remember and ACT

Re-ACT - Remember and ACT

Invitation to participate in a half-day online workshop on antisemitism on 8th of June or antigypsyism and other types of hate on 10th of June 2020

The project consortium of the EU-funded project Re-ACT! would like to invite you to participate in an online workshop on online antigypsyism and antisemitism to identify the needs for your activities to address these and other forms of online hate.

Analysis of hate data collected by members of the International Network Against Cyber Hate, INACH, in Europe has shown that there are strong and documented links between current online hate phenomena and hate-slurs, prejudices and practices that have been propagated in the Third Reich.

To transform these worrisome findings into effective warnings, especially since remembrance and knowledge on the Holocaust and its horrors are fading, the project Remember and ACT! (Re-ACT) is putting a special focus on researching how "old" concepts of antisemitism and antigypsyism are being re-enacted by concerted hate campaigns and where they originated from. Starting from there, Re-ACT will develop, collect and provide educational materials and tools for the prevention of racism, xenophobia, homophobia and other forms of intolerance.

Further information and registration details can be obtained from the invitation (PDF Download).
Registration deadline: 25th of May, 2020
Participation is free of charge.
