2013 Annual Conference
Enemy Stereotypes and Projections
Between Christians, Muslims and Jews
Friday, September 13, 2013 - Sunday, September 15, 2013
at Haus Venusberg in Bonn
Prejudices, clichés, and stereotypes are not unusual in our personal life or in our society. Psychologically speaking, we use projections to increase our self-esteem and to look at the oth-ers as the bearer of what we don't like to bear and to associate with ourselves. The Other is thwarting, aggressive, uneducated – the problem. We scapegoat others in order to have a good feeling, self esteem or conscience.
