EuroMaster student publishes blogpost in VUB EDGE programme

EuroMaster student Amanda Fialho, who specialises in EU migration policy and external relations, has published a blog post in the context of the VUB EDGE programme(Evaluating Democratic Governance in Europe). In her contribution, Ms Fialho puts forward that before there is a discussion on racism it is essential to understand that there is no racism without race. Europe has taken a positive step in the fight against racism with the Anti-Racism Action Plan 2020-2025. Yet, it still needs to come to terms with its past and finally accept that ´race´ is a socially constructed concept that works as a hierarchically categorised system. It is impossible to fight what you cannot define. 

The Brussels School of Governance (BSoG) prides itself on its practice-oriented education. To engage students, the BSoG encourages the use of a wide variety of different, challenging (learning) environments, situations and contexts, such as a carefully crafted blend of on-campus and online education, whole-task based/problem-based learning, simulations, case studies, moot courts, field trips and honours classes, with the aim of bringing practice into the classroom. Being a School that has a strong reputation in both research and education, we offer our students the opportunity to contribute to our ongoing projects and programmes.
