RETHINK Database

In response to a rise in prejudices, antisemitism, racism and xenophobia in Europe, memorial institutions and democracy-building NGOs have developed inclusive education programmes that help learners to:

  •  - Draw parallels between past and present manifestations of prejudice and mass violence.
  •  - Reflect on the role and power of the media (from social media to images and the press) in shaping and circulating radicalised ideas.
  •  - Rethink current phenomena such as polarisation and radicalisation in historical context.
  •  - Adopt a critical approach to reading, understanding, and analysing information.
  •  - To a wider extent, question the world around them.

The database enables you to search practices by keyword, target audience, and more – select the most relevant for your purposes and click on the tab to find out more.
