European Summer School on “Prejudice, Genocide, Remembrance” 2014 in Budapest, Hungary

Deadline:  20 July 2014 at 23:59 CET
Open to: participants from the member states of the Council of Europe
Venue: 25-29 August 2014, Budapest, Hungary


The Tom Lantos Institute (Budapest), the Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Education and Psychology (Budapest), and CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe (Brussels) are organizing a European Summer School, on “Prejudice, Genocide, Remembrance” for civil servants, educators, journalists, and civil society representatives.

The Summer School combines substantive education with skills training. It employs a multidisciplinary approach that complements Holocaust education with human rights training. In its methodology it combines collective-memory workshops with the discussion of relevant cases of human rights violations and the teaching of skills to prevent and counter these violations. The principle goal of this training is to develop understanding of the ways collective memories of traumatic past events shape inter-community relations in the present. Furthermore, the training situates prejudice and genocide in the context of human rights and democratic values.

In Central and Eastern Europe one reason for the spread of anti-Semitism and anti-Romani racism is the weak socialisation of democratic values and human rights in the midst of civil society. The Summer School teaches human rights norms and skills to become active in preventing and countering racism and to promote respect for the rights of ethnic and religious minorities.

The Summer School is supported by the Civil Fund-2014 of the Holocaust Memorial Year in Hungary and the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.

Trainings and lectures include:

  • Prejudices: then and now
  • The Holocaust and the Roma genocide
  • Anti-discrimination: countering anti-Semitism and racism against Roma
  • After genocide: collective memory and reconciliation
  • Minority rights including Roma rights
  • Examples of collective memory
  • Human rights education, holocaust education, education on anti-Semitism
  • Human rights, minority rights and public policies
  • Human rights in the media


In order to be considered eligible to apply, you must fulfill all of the following criteria:

  • Educators from secondary and higher education;
  • Civil servants, decision-makers and public officials who deal primarily with education policies, human and minority rights and other related policy-fields;
  • Journalists;
