European Fellowships: Program Information

Fellowship Programs in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Sarajevo

As European societies become increasingly diverse with an influx of immigrant populations, the tensions and challenges of respecting diversity while maintaining core social and cultural values has come to the forefront of public debate.

The programs, when appropriate to national histories, address the destructive common roots of prejudice, discrimination and dehumanization. These practices were directed towards Jews and other minorities in Europe during the Nazi era and Holocaust. Those under colonial rule in Africa, Asia, South, Central and North America and the Caribbean Islands were subject to racist policies and attitudes. Countries which experienced other totalitarian regimes after World War II also address the impact that socialism and its implosion had on their societies. Key areas of inquiry include national identity, immigration, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, racism, political extremism and discrimination of Roma -- all seen through the specific lens of the country the Fellowship takes place in.

Although each of the Fellowship programs promote team research and debate on human rights and social justice in democratic societies, the scope and focus of the programs differ in each city of participation.

Humanity in Action Germany invites applications for the European Fellowship programs in Berlin, Copenhagen, Sarajevo and Warsaw.
