Diversity Education is one of the major tools in German state programmss designed to unfold civic action against racism. The author is a professional in this field, has conducted evaluation research on the topic and is currently working on her PHD related to the subject. Drawing on these pracical, theoretical and research experiences this paper explores the potentials and shortcomings of Diversity Education as a remedy against far right wing parties and racism.
The article presents some sceptical arguments based on major european-wide qualitative research, an analysis of the contemporary Diversity discourse and empirical findings. Finally the contribution provides perspectives for an altered Diversity education that would meet the fundamental dynamics of racism more effectively.

In my dissertation I am analyzing the concepts diversity, intersectionality and recognition which became leading values in the fields of education and social work in recent years. This work encompasses theoretical work and empirical research. I am interested in analyzing, inhowfar these concepts constitute effective practices against racism. The question arose in my professional work as a counselor in a state-subsidized team supporting teachers, politicians and citizens in establishing networks for democratization. Prior to this I have conducted several researches on this topic in districts of Berlin and the neighbouring state Brandenburg. I hold a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Freie Universität, Berlin.
