Why experiential learning
The nature of hate and related crimes requires special skills to detect them and identify the elements that constitute fundamental rights violations. We believe experiential learning is a powerful method to transfer such skills in a way to complement formal knowledge and cultivate a new ethos within institutions. This is why the project’s core methodology lies upon the philosophy of innovative capacity building to enhance the capacity of actors involved in addressing hate crime, by using ‘experiential’ learning techniques that focus on the ‘lived experience’ of crime.
In that respect, the project team conducted training needs assessments for each target group in Greece, Italy and Hungary, based on which specific experiential learning modules and training material were designed for each target group. This material was utilized in experiential learning seminars conducted in the three countries.
