The programme for the EPNA Workshop 2024, titled “More Liberalism, Less Antisemitism? In Times of Political Change: Finding Reliable Partners for Europe’s Pluralistic Future,” is now available.

We are delighted to announce that the workshop is taking place in cooperation with the Marek Edelman Dialogue Center. Their support and collaboration are invaluable, and we are very happy to be able to work together.

The workshop features several key sessions focused on addressing antisemitism and discussing the implementation of Europe’s pluralistic and liberal values. On Monday, the workshop will commence with an input session by Jakub Jaraczewski from Democracy Reporting International, discussing the challenges and key takeaways related to undoing authoritarianism in Poland.

Tuesday will continue with an input session by Anna Zielinska from the Czulent Jewish Association, exploring the status quo of antisemitism in Poland, in the absence of a significant Jewish population in the country. The day will also include multiple working group sessions where participants will engage in collaborative discussions on best practices for practitioners working against antisemitism. In the afternoon, there will be a critical discussion on the definitions and controversies surrounding antisemitism. The day will end with a guided tour through Łódź, visiting, among other sites, the former Jewish quarter of the city.

On Wednesday, the workshop will host practitioners’ meet sessions where representatives from organizations such as Wolny Klub Sportowy, Never Again Association, and Czulent Jewish Association will share their insights and experiences. These sessions aim to foster practical exchanges and networking among participants.

This comprehensive programme is designed to provide valuable insights and foster collaboration among EPNA network members. The event will take place from June 10th to 12th, 2024, in Łódź, Poland, at the Puro Łódź Hotel.
