The Global Consortium on Bigotry and Hate brings together scholars and practitioners from across the globe to explore these local manifestations of bigotry and hate and the local interventions that have been developed to stop them.
"Bigotry and Hate: Local and Global Perspectives" is a conference hosted by The Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies (HL-senteret) in co-operation with Center for Research on Extremism at the University in Oslo as part of our membership in Global Consortium on Bigotry and Hate.
The first day of the conference will focus on bigotry and hate in Norway, the second day on bigotry and hate around the world. See list of paricipants.
