Young People and (anti-) Racism: whose lives matter in Europe?
In Europe, racism is often dismissed as an issue of the past, the others, or the extremes. People of colour, activists, and academics alike have long challenged this view.

About the event
Now, in the wake of global protests against racism and police brutality, European publics at large have also been called to reckon with the role of race on the continent. This panel will discuss how racism has deeply shaped both European past and present and how young people today can determine how it’ll shape Europe’s future.
Asking whose lives matter in Europe, the event will explore issues of European identity, religion, politics, and migration. The speakers will discuss young people’s role in anti-racist activism as well as the experiences of young people of colour. Most fundamentally, the panel will not only talk about who gets to be European in Europe today, but what it could mean to belong to Europe tomorrow.
