Solidarity and Fear. Stereotyping Radicals and Refugees in Times of Confusion

Part of the Rights at the Edge Symposium 

Collective ideas on radicalization, migration and refugees, fear and solidarity have been exposed to dramatic changes after 9/11. This workshop is double-edged:

First, we will provide data and concrete examples of current practices when working with refugees in Europe, and we will discuss various possibilities regarding how to support and accompany them. Second, we will talk openly about recent terrorist attacks and hate crimes (e.g. Charlottesville & Barcelona), to describe applied research on the psychological and social profiles of the perpetrators of violence.

Ultimately, we will share reflections and approaches on current violent scenarios to analyze the interests and emotions underlying polarization and hate, as well as the strategies that are used to balance those to avoid violence.

Participants will engage in group work, discussions, and practical tasks to become familiar with refugee work and the policies that support such persons internationally, as well as in polarization scenarios that defy basic human rights both locally and internationally.

Registration is limited, simply include the following information in an e-mail to

szukerma@haverford.edu by Tuesday, Oct. 31, with the subject line ‘Solidarity and Fear’.
