In Atelier 2 „Media and CSO Approaches to Mutual Understanding within and across Societies“ at the WIKA Workshop 2020 Dr. Janine Dieckmann (Scientific Advisor and Researcher at the Institute for Democracy and Civil Society (IDZ), Jena) in her presentation „Discrimination as a Threat to Social Cohesion and Democracy“ focused on the interplay of antecedents, outcomes, and functions of discrimination in intergroup contexts and at the individual, group, and societal level. The model developed on the basis of these considerations can support the discussion of different approaches to dealing with discrimination and hostility to democracy and the development of specific starting points for counteracting discrimination in society.
The WIKA Workshop 2020 focused on „Cultures Underway. Cultural Divides within and across Societies“. It is headed by the Chairwoman of the Academic Council on Culture and Foreign Policy (Wissenschaftlicher Intitiativkreis Kultur und Außenpolitik, WIKA), Prof. Dr. Caroline Y.
