Ivan Ejub Kostic at web-panel “Genocide Denial and Islamophobia”
25 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.
At the event his presentation will give Ivan Ejub Kostic, a member of Board of Trustees of European Muslim Network. Also, the President of Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities H.E. Abdullah Eren’s will give a keynote speech, while Enes Bayraklı, Coordinator of SETA Brussels Office will lead the panel in company of Amil Khan (Remembering Srebrenica UK), and Farid Hafez (Georgetown University The Bridge Initiative).
