RAISE: Recognition and Acknowledgement of Injustice to Strengthen Equality

May, 2023 to April, 2027
EU Horizon Europe - Research and Innovation Actions

The project aims to deepen our understanding of how ethnic, racial, and religious boundaries are formed within various institutional contexts of everyday life. Through research and outreach efforts, the project will focus on six European countries, including Hungary, and aspires to contribute to the promotion of equality by shedding light on the mechanisms and impacts of these boundaries in society.  

Structural racism exists because of social constructions of group demarcations. Such boundary making processes are at the root of both structural and individual xenophobia and racism. This project therefore first aims to empirically map boundary making processes in people’s everyday life institutional contexts. Second, the project aims to provide empirical evidence for what actions as a response to boundary making processes will support equality.
