Inhalt 

The project compares the wave of protests and reactions by civil society organizations that followed the death of George Floyd in four European countries: Germany, Denmark, Italy and Poland. The project studies the scope and forms of anti-racist protest, their transnational interdependencies and national discursive/agenda setting impacts between May and July 2020 guided by the following three research questions:

1. What responses and reactions by civil society organizations took place in four countries in Europe? How can cross-national differences be explained? (mapping and contextualizing anti-racist protest)
2. How have antiracist activists in Europe adapted frames, claims and strategies of the US protests to their national contexts? How did protests in different countries influence each other? (transnational diffusion and localization of anti-racist protest)
3. Which narration of antiracist protests can we observe in national public discourses (discursive impact)?
