As part of the annual theme "Reimagining Space - New Utopias", the School for Talents invites you to exchange ideas on future topics with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) Begabtenförderungswerk (programs for the promotion of talented students), with its talk series "Food for thought for the future". Join the discussion on socio-economic transformation, transatlantic relations, and core democratic values, and get to know foundations and their programs up close. 

Discussion with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation on the topic "The challenge facing the political center. Right-wing extremist attitudes and attitudes that threaten democracy in Germany 2020/21".

Rarely has the political center been as "challenged" as it is today. Right-wing extremism, populism and racism are challenging the political center. Every two years, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation's "Mitte-Studie" examines right-wing extremist attitudes and attitudes threatening democracy in German society. The current survey from December 2020 to spring 2021 shows: the "political center" is being challenged to show more attitude, to take a stand and to strengthen its democracy! And it does have the potential to do this. After all, the center itself considers right-wing extremism to be the greatest threat to democracy, and therein lies the opportunity to counter it. This short talk will introduce selected findings and their classifications and discuss them with the audience. 

Anja Dargatz has been Head of the Fritz Erler Forum, Friedrich Ebert Foundation's regional office in Baden-Württemberg, since 2016.

Please note: this event will be held online. Registration is not required. Event language: German
