Race, Racism and Xenophobia in a Global Context III: Brussels
date: November 9, 2017
location: The European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium

How does racism and discrimination operate in different geographical contexts, reflecting local tensions and prejudices and intersecting with issues of nationality, class, gender, religion, marginality, citizenship, and globalization?

How does location affect the way in which we think about the social constructions of race and race relations?

What role do historical experiences of slavery, discrimination and colonialism play?

How does the current migration crisis in Europe and rising Islamophobia help us better understand the similarities and differences between the U.S. and Europe?

At the invitation of the European Parliament Anti-Racism and Diversity Intergroup, La Pietra Dialogues is co-hosting the third Race, Racism and Xenophobia Conference at the European Parliament in Brussels on November 9, following previous editions in Florence and New York.

Hosted by MEP Cécile Kyenge in collaboration with NEW YORK UNIVERSITY
