Widespread Othering has led to a host of challenges in our world today, including territorial disputes, toxic levels of economic inequality, military intervention, the closing of borders, forced migration, and climate change. As hate, ultra-nationalism and xenophobia continue to deepen and harden across the world, the need to challenge Othering is more urgent than ever. We must not only understand the underlying structural dynamics that gave rise to these forces, we must also protect our communities that are targeted and made vulnerable by them as well.
