24 years ago today, thousands of Bosnian Muslims were brutally murdered in the heart of Europe in Srebrenica, in front of the eyes of the whole world. In order to prevent similar incidents from recurring one must first fight the attitudes and discourses that have made these massacres possible.
As we all know, Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism and right-wing violence are on the rise. We also observe that there are some parallels between the deniers of the Holocaust and Srebrenica are not very different from each other.
On 11th of July, 2020, SETA will organize a panel titled “Genocide Denial and Islamophobia”. The panel will address the question of whether there is a link between the genocide denial and Islamophobia.
Following the President of Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities H.E. Abdullah Eren’s keynote speech, Enes Bayraklı, Coordinator of SETA Brussels Office will lead the panel in company of Amil Khan (Remembering Srebrenica UK), Farid Hafez (Georgetown University The Bridge Initiative), and Ivan Ejub Kostić (Author of European Islamophobia Report – Serbia Country Report).
