In response to the Black Lives Matter protests in Basel and globally, the Centre for African Studies and the Urban Studies program at the University of Basel launch this website as a platform for listening and learning from all members of our university community. Our aim is to open a space for dialogue and critical introspection on individual and institutional racism and other forms of discrimination, as a starting point for strengthening our long-term commitment to advancing anti-racism, diversity and inclusion within and beyond the University of Basel.

To this end, this website serves as a platform to share experiences and thoughts related to racism and discrimination and to discuss how best to foster anti-racism, diversity and inclusion.
