Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Surveys as well as the increasing verbal and physical violence against Jews document a frightening increase of antisemitism worldwide. Austria and its institutions are no exception to this development. Based on cutting edge research, this seminar class will ask how antisemitism can be combatted successfully. For this purpose, in addition to the dicussion of pertinent literature and catalogues of measures how to combat antisemitism, decision makers will be invited to class who play a significant role in the fight against antisemitism.
