The program is as follows: Lecture on Tue 17th Dec. 6:00 - 8:00 P.M.

It is especially true of Eastern Europe and Poland, where a considerable part of Muslims experience hate speech, acts of hate or discrimination. What is the scale of Islamophobia in Poland and EU? What are the reasons of fear and hatred toward Muslims in Poland, where – on the one hand – there are almost no Muslims (less than 0,1 percent of whole population of the country) but – on the other – there is one of the oldest Islamic communities in whole EU? What is the future of Islam in EU and Poland? What can be done to build common understanding? Participation fee: For free. Workshop #1, on Wed 18th Dec. 6:00 - 8:00 P.M. Are we really doomed to conflict? Good practices in building bridges between Muslims and non-Muslims.
