Anti-Racism Workshop

Due to given social developments and necessities, the Prorectorate for Academic Careers and Equal Opportunities has set itself the task of taking a look at structures in which - regardless of individual intentions - racism can be institutionally reproduced. The aim is to initiate a long-term process critical of racism and participatory, which will make it possible to change structures at the University of Cologne in such a way that inequalities of opportunity are reduced. Within the framework of the Critique of Racism Workshop, current problem areas in relation to structural racism at the University of Cologne are to be identified in a processual manner and needs for action are to be developed. It is planned to establish working groups and networks that will deal with the identified problem areas and/or measures in the subsequent process.
