The work of the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) is based on fieldwork conducted by intellectuals-activists from all Europe about the discrimination and Islamophobia faced by Muslims in Europe. The IHRC collaborates with different Muslim and non-Muslim organisations towards the construction of an anti-racist and decolonial legal system, and the decolonisation of human rights. Their work has many different expressions: the elaboration of reports to national and international organisations, articles for the written press, media monitoring, documentation of war crimes and elaboration of research papers on discrimination, human rights, human dignity, democratization, etc. Much of the material elaborated in the IHRC is available online in their web page.

The movement of the colonial subjects in France is made up by French citizens of Arab-Muslim and Black origin, these last especially Black from the Caribbean. Their work revolves around the decolonisation of being, power and knowledge, among others through their preoccupation with the historical memory concerning colonialism and slavery, a radical questioning of the institutional structures of colonial power of the French Republic, and a continuous underlining of the ways in which coloniality of power in France subalternises the colonial subjects of the Republic. Indigènes de la République count with broad support among the communities of colonial subjects in France, and collaborate closely with other social and political movements in the struggle against racism and coloniality.

Dutch Black Movement

The Dutch Black Movement has a long trajectory working in relation to Dutch slavery and its legacies, centring especially in contemporary debates about education and research (decolonization of knowledge), reparations and Dutch public policies. The movement, which counts with strong support of the Black Dutch community in general, has various institutionalised activities, such as a yearly summer school and symposium, an institute of research and education (NinSee), a widely read blog, and a permanent exhibition on the history of Dutch slavery. Some of the members of this movement participate continuously in public debates in Holland, invited to speak in television and radio.

The International Institute for Scientific Research

 

TOLERACE: The Semantics of Tolerance and (Anti-)Racism in Europe is a research project carried out in collaboration between several academic institutions in Europe. Its work centres on racism and its invisibilisation and depolitisation in the European context. The project is based at the Centre for Social Studies, Coimbra University in Portugal. It emphasises that the insufficiency of European public policies to combat racism is due to the fact that these are formulated and carried out on the basis of a dominant understanding of racism also common within academia. This dominant understanding does not consider the intimate relations between racism and the processes of nation-making, colonialism, coloniality, and the idea of citizenship in Europe.

Grupo de Estudios - Sindicato Andaluz de Trabajadores/as 

El 18 de diciembre de 2011, al calor del 1º Congreso del Sindicato Andaluz de Trabajadores, se aprobaron por unanimidad varias propuestas, acciones e ilusiones. Entre ellas, se dio el pistoletazo de salida al Grupo de Estudios del SAT, una propuesta que congregaba los esfuerzos de varios jóvenes de Nuestra Andalucía en su ilusión de apoyar el Movimiento de Liberación Andaluz poniendo en práctica los conocimientos adquiridos en sus respectivas carreras universitarias ya finalizadas y en las diferentes luchas sociales en las que habían participado. Historiadores/as, abogados/as, biólogos/as, antropólogos/as, sociólogos/as, se reunían con un objetivo común: Acelerar, acompañar, compartir y vivir las diferentes luchas sociales emprendidas desde nuestro sindicato.  Leer más...
