Growing Together

The third conference took place in Istanbul to mark the physical and intellectual meeting and cooperation between Europe and the Middle East.

The presentations and debates of the conference focused on the following themes: 1) Types of conflicts causing forced separation of religious and ethnic groups, 2) Effects of emigration and immigration on religious and social society, and 3) Scepticism towards ’the other’ and tendencies to false generalisations in light of increasing nationalism and radicalism.
