Training

Through our training programs we transfer academic and practical knowledge to students and practitioners, and gain insights into their opinions and experiences.

Summer School

Since 1999, the Institute for Minority Rights has been organizing a two-week long Summer School on the topics of Human Rights, Minorities and Diversity Management.

Our international Summer School attracts students from all over the world, offering them a platform to discuss current topics in the field of diversity management with experts from inside and outside of academia through seminars, role plays, workshops and field trips.

Pedagogical tools and learning material

Awareness work is of paramount importance to combat discrimination, racism, xenophobia and to address the difficulties and benefits of diversity.

For this reason our Institute has developed a set of pedagogical tools on diversity, anti-discrimination and minorities aimed at young people, children, adults, teachers, educational operators, associations and youth centres.

The set of games includes:

  • The House of Common Values, an interactive and collaborative board game that allows exploring the common values of the European Union.
  • the pedagogical toolkit Diversity4Kids
  • the e-learning platform Teach-D
  • Space Migrants, a role-play on the topics of anti-discrimination and diversity for schools and youth organizations.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
