Ariadne and the Diversity Migration Integration (DMI) thematic network of the European Foundation Centre (EFC) are happy to invite you to the meeting 'For an inclusive Europe: European funders countering hatred and discrimination based on racial and religious bias'.
This meeting will take place in Brussels from the afternoon of Monday, June 25th to Tuesday, June 26th at Philanthropy House.
In 2017, Ariadne released its ” Seeking an Inclusive Europe: Foundation Grantmaking for Countering Ethnic and Religious Bias and Xenophobia” report, which revealed a lack of coordination among private donors and a shortage of funding going into addressing xenophobia and ethnic and religious bias affecting not only third country nationals, but also European citizens from ethnic or religious minorities, whether they have a migrant background or not.
From the spike in hate crimes following the Brexit referendum to advantageous electoral results for openly xenophobic parties, recent events only confirm the urgency to tackle these issues in Europe. But how can funders address these issues more effectively? Through a series of national roundtables in The Netherlands, Italy, France and Germany, Ariadne has been exploring with donors the needs in this sector and the challenges facing donors trying to address racism and intolerance. Through this regional event, Ariadne hopes to sustain European donors’ strategic thinking in this area, respond to appetite for greater collaboration, and ultimately generate more support for the field.
This meeting will be held in English. It is open to representatives of grant-making foundations who support projects for social change and human rights both in national contexts and internationally.
Confirmed speakers and facilitators for the event include:
