> ++++ Very short Deadline: 28th of Feb+++
> Call for Pre-Team to organise a conference on right-wing extremism and
> right-wing populism
> Last year we saw a rise of Right-Wing Populists and Right-Wing Extremist
> in the European Elections. Anti-democratic, xenophobic, islamophob and
> anti-semitic and racist parties and movements gained more traction
> everywhere in Europe. However, there seems to be not a lot done to
> understand the right-wing as an European-Phenomena. Furthermore, there is
> little capacity exchange between the different movements which work against
> the right-wing.
> We have only got confirmation for the funding last week on Friday. The
> conference was planned to happen on the 7th and 8th of April, however the
> prep-team would have to evaluate if the implementation within this short
> framework is feasible.
> The Federation of Young European Greens wants to do exactly this. We want
> to conduct a conference that focuses on the rise of the right wing in
> Europe. The conference has three objectives:
> 1. To analyse the rise of the right-wing in Europe as an European
> phenomena and to build tactics against it at the European level
> 2. To engage in capacity and experience-exchange between different
> groups in Europe that deal with or have to deal with the rise of the
> 3. To start a debate on how to win against the right-wing and
> marginalise them again.
> In order to do so, we are calling for a prep-team that will help
> organising this conference.
> The prep-team will be expected to work on the following items:
> - Discuss the structure and strategy of the conference and the
> expected outcomes
> - Build the conference upon existing debates on the topic
> - Organise logistically the conference, inviting the speakers and
> moderators of workshops and panels
> - Organise logistically the venue and the sleeping possibilities for
> the conference
> - Connect the conference to the Members Organisations of FYEG and to
> movements with a similar interest of countering the far-right
> - Disseminate the results of the conference
> - Evaluate the conference
> We are searching for a prep-team of 5 people with the (very short)
> deadline of 28th of Feb. If you are interested, please send a short
> motivation + relevant past experiences to micha at fyeg.org putting in cc.
