Agenda

  • Radicalisering in België en Nederland. Kritische perspectieven op veiligheid en geweld

    In de vroege jaren 2000 introduceerde Nederland de strijd tegen radicalisering, met als bedoeling de gevaren van bepaalde vormen van religieus militantisme te voorkomen die kunnen leiden tot daden van terroristisch geweld. De moord op Theo Van Gogh in 2004 en de aanslagen in Londen in 2005 leidden een verdere expansie van dit beleid, en het vertrek van jongeren naar Syrië vanaf 2012 en...

  • Maternal Sacrifice in Jewish Culture: Rethinking Sacrifice from a Maternal Perspective in Religion, Art, and Culture

    The phrase “maternal sacrifice” combines two complex terms entangled in an even more complex dynamic.

  • Edited collection on LGBTIQ+ migration on, from and to the African continent

    On 15 November 1884, the major European powers met in Berlin to carve up a continent. They haggled over ‘ownership’, made claims to territories and peoples, and debated how best to ‘trade’ resources; by the end of the conference, they had inscribed borders that remain to this day.
