Right-wing extremism in the workplace – raising awareness and developing measures

Experience shows: Workplaces reflect the average of society, so misanthropic and right-wing extremist tendencies also show up in the workplace, just as they do in our society. Sometimes right-wing extremist colleagues can be found, endangering the working atmosphere and collegial cooperation. Companies, managers and works councils are called upon to act. The best prevention is a clear stance and positioning of the company externally against any anti-human aspirations. In order to be able to act structurally, preventively, but also acutely, knowledge about right-wing extremist codes, language and groups is needed, as well as confidence in taking action.

In this seminar, we will look at identifying characteristics of right-wing ideologies and current developments and groups of the New Right. Together, we will address the challenges that companies face in this context.
