European Leadership Workshop 2023


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

4-7 September 2023, Budapest, Hungary

In the European Leadership Workshop 2023 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.

In the struggle for the protection and strengthening of a pluralistic, democratic and inclusive society based on solidarity we need to understand anti-pluralistic, anti-egalitarian and anti-liberal positions, arguments, codes and rhetoric. What are ideological foundations of right-wing thinking? Who are agents within European right-wing networks? What are the main topics? How they are connected to religion and worldview? How they are framed and why are they framed this way?

DialoguePerspectives enabled me to meet people with diverse backgrounds and different worldviews – many inspiring encounters and interesting discussions will stick with me forever. If you want to meet other young academics from all over Europe, reflect on your own identity and widen your horizon - apply!
