New Website: Black Lives Matter at the University of Basel

In response to the Black Lives Matter protests in Basel and globally, the Centre for African Studies and the Urban Studies program at the University of Basel launched the website as a platform for listening and learning from all members of our university community.

Our  aim is to open a space for dialogue and critical introspection on  individual and institutional racism and other forms of discrimination,  as a starting point for strengthening our long-term commitment to  advancing anti-racism, diversity and inclusion within and beyond the  University of Basel. To this end, this website serves as a platform to  share experiences and thoughts related to racism and discrimination and  to discuss how best to foster anti-racism, diversity and inclusion.
