On Tuesday, our project manager Gil Shohat together with ELES colleague Maja Vataman participated in a roundtable discussion with the EU representative for Jewish life and the fight against antisemitism, Katharina von Schnurbein, at the Representation of the European Commission in Germany. One of the issues discussed was the need for European networking of initiatives in the field of interreligious/worldview dialogue in order to encourage the fight against anti-Semitism in all areas of civil society and to link it with other significant efforts for a pluralistic society based on solidarity. As a European programme, we consider this to be a great opportunity to continue to strengthen our engagement at the EU level and look forward to further exchanges. We would like to thank the Representation of the European Commission in Germany and Nikolaus von Peter for the invitation!
˝DialoguePerspectives offers a unique change of perspective! The programme allows you to really grapple with current and highly societally relevant questions, to reflect on your own identity, and to get to know the diversity of European identities. I am very grateful for the intensive personal discussion and encounters, and the great amount of food for thought that has stuck with me long past the seminars.
