  Add to Calendar 2014-09-30 14:30 2014-09-30 18:00 Europe/Paris Intolerance Moving Mainstream in Europe? Drivers of Intolerance and How to Foster Change

In the last European elections radical parties - including anti-EU and xenophobic parties - made significant electoral gains across the EU. Populist fringe parties tap into feelings of anger and fear among a significant part of the electorate, that is paired with various expressions of intolerance: against elites, but also against minorities, migrants or foreigners who are perceived as a threat to cultural identity and socio-economic security. This workshop presents recent quantitative and qualitative data on trends in (in)tolerance in Europe. We will discuss what drives (in)tolerance in different EU member states, how tolerance indicators could be used as a self-monitoring tool for state authorities and other stakeholders, and look at various interventions that could contribute to countering intolerance in Europe.
