We welcoming submissions from scholars, practitioners, and students whose research interests are related to the conference topics.


The aim is to gather professionals, decision-makers, academics and students willing to engage in combating xenophobic behaviors by using university knowledge and communication strategies.

According to our hypothesis, the reasons for such negative attitudes are the objectification of the OTHER and the fact that targeted groups are DIFFERENT. It includes phenomena such as chauvinism, racism, antisemitism, anti-minority sentiment, anti-romanyism, anti-Islam, sexism, homophobia, xenophobic nationalism … It takes various forms; from hate speech and discriminative behaviors – theoretical and practical – to violence against marginalized individuals and groups.
