Research on Right-Wing Extremism is essential in order to counteract its effects and for developing effective prevention measures. The Right-Wing Studies Knowledge Network (Wi-REX) brings together knowledge from different disciplines, creates spaces for reflection and interaction for researchers, develops tailored formats for the transfer of knowledge between research, practice, and civil society, and provides support specifically for young researchers working on the topic of right-wing extremism.

WinRa – Racism Studies Knowledge Network
Not least the attacks in Hanau and Halle and the surge in racist violence in Germany, which manifests itself structurally and institutionally, show how important it is, to take decisive action against racism and right-wing extremism and to promote and expand research on these topics, and to establish it in the university landscape. Against this backdrop, the Racism Research Knowledge Network (WinRa) connects the scattered and fragmented area of research on racism in Germany strategically, by means of a research-led and interdisciplinary exchange.
