European Summer School on Prejudice, Genocide, Remembrance
Budapest, Hungary





Scholarship / Financial aid: 10 international scholarships are available (tuition, accommodation, meals and travel costs)

Date: 25-29 August 2014

Announcement follows

Description

The Tom Lantos Institute (Budapest), the Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Education and Psychology (Budapest), and CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe (Brussels) are organizing a European Summer School, on “Prejudice, Genocide, Remembrance” for civil servants, educators, journalists, and civil society representatives.

The Summer School combines substantive education with skills training. It employs a multidisciplinary approach that complements Holocaust education with human rights training. In its methodology it combines collective-memory workshops with the discussion of relevant cases of human rights violations and the teaching of skills to prevent and counter these violations. The principle goal of this training is to develop understanding of the ways collective memories of traumatic past events shape inter-community relations in the present. Furthermore, the training situates prejudice and genocide in the context of human rights and democratic values.

In Central and Eastern Europe one reason for the spread of anti-Semitism and anti-Romani racism is the weak socialisation of democratic values and human rights in the midst of civil society. The Summer School teaches human rights norms and skills to become active in preventing and countering racism and to promote respect for the rights of ethnic and religious minorities.

The Summer School is supported by the Civil Fund-2014 of the Holocaust Memorial Year in Hungary and the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.

Trainings and lectures include:

Prejudices: then and now
The Holocaust and the Roma genocide
Anti-discrimination: countering anti-Semitism and racism against Roma
After genocide: collective memory and reconciliation
Minority rights including Roma rights
Examples of collective memory
Human rights education, holocaust education, education on anti-Semitism
Human rights, minority rights and public policies
Human rights in the media
