This project is concerned with African migration to Europe and the lack of understanding of the causes and consequences of this migration.

This project was interested in the incorporation of Islam in immigrant countries with regard to traditions of national identity, citizenship and church-state relations. It was also focusing on the consequences of the previous aspects on the interaction between Muslim immigrants and their descendants and the receiving society.

Three-year project with a view to examine meanings of (anti-)racism and tolerance and how they are shaped by civil society organisations and public institutions and policies (European, national, regional and local levels).

Organiser: International Dialogues Foundation

This conference brought together migrant and non-migrant youth to engage in intercultural dialogue and discuss the relations between the European society and the Muslim world. The conference was motivated by the increase in intolerance across Europe and the development of the ‘us-them’ mentality. The main subject debated was the role of the migrant youth in large cities.

The panel [aimed] at making sense of it by examining the various components of these critiques of multiculturalism, and their political uses in the European Union at a time of crisis, and will offer some reflections on the future of European multiculturalism."
