The aim of the conference is to take stock of international research in the field of tolerance research. 15 international speakers from different disciplines (history, philosophy, social science, education, philology, Jewish studies, Islamic studies, politics, psychology) will focus on tolerance’s potential as a means to build bridges and at the same time determine limits. The conference will discuss the challenges and opportunities of tolerance research today and in the field of minority research in particular. The conference will take place under the direction of Prof. Dr. Giuseppe Veltri and Prof. Dr. Jörg Rüpke.
