Consultancy and evaluation of a Project promoting Jewish-Muslim Dialogue
The “Schalom Aleikum” project was initiated by the Zentralradt der Juden in Germany and has been implemented since June 2019. It is funded by the Federal Chancellor’s Office for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Minister of State Annette Widmann-Mauz. “Schalom Aleikum” aims to bring Jews and Muslims into dialogue with each other and promote the mutual reduction of prejudices.
Against this background, new formats of Jewish-Muslim exchange – so-called dialogue platforms – were developed. In 2019, six these dialogue platforms took place in various German cities, as well as an annual event. Part of the project is ongoing social science research that is to be used for developing pedagogical approaches towards the Jewish-Muslim dialogue in education.
EDUCULT evaluated the pilot project in 2019 summatively, whereby the focus was on the evaluation of structures and processes. In 2020, EDUCULT consultancy to the project focuses on the analysis of project management, public relations and sustainability of the project measures.
