New Antisemitism in Europe?
Keynote and Open Discussion with Dr. Paul A. Levine

07.11.2018, 19:30-21:00, Afro-Asian Institute Graz

Today Europe, the EU and the world are witness to an alarming explosion of right-wing extremism and a political strengthening of toxic ethno-nationalisms thought to belong to the past. These trends, combined with large-scale movements of refugees and a weakening of still young democratic structures, present an unique danger for the democratic and humanistic Europe which remains at the very center of our common post-War aspirations. If this serious challenge is not adequately understood and confronted, another European tragedy is sure to follow.

Presentation: Assoz. Prof. Mag. Ulla Kriebernegg (Zentrum für Inter-Amerikanische Studien, Universität Graz)
