European Leadership Workshop 2023

Know your enemy: the entanglements between right-wing agents and religion in Europe

DialoguePerspectives’ alumni*ae and participants, apply now for the European Leadership Workshop 2023 in Budapest, Hungary!

Know your enemy! What sounds like a combative metaphor is – unfortunately – a necessity in the field of interreligious-/worldview dialogue in Europe today. For many years anti-pluralistic, anti-egalitarian and anti-liberal positions, arguments, codes and rhetoric are on the rise. They were and still are visible in the Brexit campaign, in Poland’s tightening of abortion laws, in Hungary’s anti-gay-propaganda laws, in Italy’s declaration of a state of emergency when refugees are actually surviving the crossing of the Mediterranean Sea, in countless news articles and social media posts.

During the European Leadership Workshop 2023, which will take place from 4 to 7 September in Budapest, Hungary, the participants will acquire skills to recognize and analyze right-wing discourses and to classify them in terms of religion and worldviews in an intensive training. Supported by European experts from the fields of science and activism they will gain a deep insight in a field that is still easily overlooked yet key to understand the current rise of right-wing thinking and rhetoric.

The application is open to DialoguePerspectives’ alumni*ae and participants! If you would like to participate, please send us an email with a short letter of motivation (maximum one page) to: elw@dialogperspektiven.de.

˝Some wise person once wrote “The whole entire world is a very narrow bridge and the main thing is to have no fear at all.” I feel that thanks to DialoguePerspectives the world is becoming a network of interconnected bridges that we are building between each other together. Beautiful bridges thanks to which we can try to create a world together, a world free from prejudices and fear.

Anna, DialoguePerspectives participant
