Axis 3. Programme 1. Collective memory, patrimony and national and regional imagination

Axis 2. Programme 2. Racism, discrimination, inequality and the production of categories of otherness

12 January 2009 andres 0

This programme brings together research which delves into both the very consistency of racist social relations, viewed as one of the forms that interethnic social relations can take, and how racism is manifested, in particular through processes of discrimination or segregation.
