Amina Nolte is a sociologist and political education officer at the Kreuzberger Initiative against Antisemitism in Berlin, Germany. She is involved in political education on anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim racism and xenophobia, and trains teachers in methods of teaching the Middle East conflict in schools. She is currently finishing her PhD in sociology within the collaborative research cluster “Dynamics of Security” at the Justus Liebig University Giessen and Philipps University Marburg. Her academic work deals with processes of urban security practices in Israel and Palestine and with their transnational entanglements.
Given the complexities of the Israel, Palestine, Germany triangle, it is vitally important
to educate against anti-Semitism, racism and Islamophobia in a country which absorbed
between 800,000 and one million migrants from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other
countries in 2015 alone.
