Book Launch: "Migration, Equality & Racism. 44 Opinions"

Event: 21 January, 2021 - Online

A unique project in which more than 80 scientists and co-authors take a stance and propose solutions.

We invite you to the launch of our VUB Poincaré book 'Migration, equality & racism - 44 opinions', January 21 at 8 pm. An online event with striking interviews with the authors, a dance performance by Mouss Sarr, slam poetry by Sakina El Kaddouri and pictures by Esma Alouet. Yasmina El Messaoudi will be our host. 

RSVP and attend here

More than 80 VUB academics and co-authors joined forces for this book. Philosophers, lawyers, psychologists, health scientists, sociologists, geographers, criminologists, communication and political scientists … look at migration, equality and racism from different disciplinary angles. Together they aim to contribute to an exercise of humanism as a praxis of criticism or a ‘technique of trouble-making’, in the words of Edward Said.

Through 44 thought-provoking and informed opinion pieces, they question widespread beliefs on migration, equality and racism and propose solutions that might disturb. Let this book be a source of inspiration for those who want to spark an informed debate on the ever more salient issues of migration, equality and racism, for those who want to learn more on how and why humanism has often remained an empty box for migrants and racialized groups. Or for those who are in search of inspiration for a just future for all. 

You can already pre-order your free digital copy of the book! 
 
Migration, Equality and Racism is the work of Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) think tank POINcaré and was created under the direction of Ilke Adam, Tundé Adefioye, Serena D’Agostino, Nick Schuermans and Florian Trauner.
