Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The course aims to introduce students to the mechanisms behind stereotypes, (in)tolerance, (anti)discrimination, and the building of the (negative) Other, in order to understand, analyse and explore ways in which these can be broken down and dispelled, diffused and changed. From theory to practice, the course takes students through the conceptual/ theoretical background and straight to practical solutions within the sphere of policy-making and education. Students will also engage in their own diagnosis, analysis and formulation of solutions to concrete problems of discrimination and intolerance.
