Against hostility to foreigners – for an open-minded University!
Together with other Universities in Germany the University of Trier calls to oppose to hostility to foreigners.
The numerous events during the last weeks and months with racist motivated verbal and physical violence are intolerable. They affect people and are harmful to both science and society.
We will strongly stand against these acts of hostility to foreigners in Germany and Europe.
Universities want and need open-mindedness and internationality. Universities are – by tradition - places of enlightenment in thinking where open exchange, diversity in opinions and tolerance prevail.
