Linie 4 - Start of events
About the Dealing with Discrimination: News from Social Sciences and History, is the title of the lecture series Linie 4 in the VHS, which has opened on 19 March by Malika Mansouri.
She talked about the topic "50 Years of ICERD - The United Nations on Racial Discrimination in and by Germany". The well-attended lecture invited with exciting input to discussion and questions.
Malika, how was the event for you?
MM: It was definitely a positive and rewarding experience. I found the questions and the discussion afterwards very interesting and fruitful. You could see that the participants were very interested and reflected on the topic. As you know, this is not always the case with this topic.
What did you particularly enjoy about the format?
MM: I was surprised that some of the participants came from more distant cities. This perhaps shows how important it is and how rarely such themes - racism from a critical legal perspective - are addressed. This makes it all the more important that the BGHS together with the VHS provides a forum for that topic.
On 02 April Johanna Paul will give her lecture on "The White Armband Day – Cross-boarder remembrance to the genocide in Prijedor (Bosnia-Herzegovina)".
