Geneva Summer Schools: Prejudice, Discrimination and the Diversity Challenge
Earlybird Deadline: February 15, 2019
Prejudice and discrimination are often causes of individuals’ suffering, social inequalities, and human conflicts in contemporary societies. Prejudice and discrimination are pervasive, difficult to counteract, and persisting even in unsuspected contexts and organizations.
This summer school brings together experts and students from different countries to examine the origins and the consequences of prejudice. Where does prejudice come from? How do prejudice and discrimination affect people’s achievements, performances, and well-being? How can institutions reduce prejudice? How do laws prevent prejudice and protect minorities? What are the advantages of the inclusion of minority groups in the labor market?
The course will take place from July 8 to July 12, 2019
