Enemy images

Materials: Flipchart paper, markers Exercise description Split into groups according to the participant’s home country/region. Step 1. The participants are instructed to list the groups their environment presented as enemies on the wall newspaper (during their childhood, schooling, through the media, at work, etc.). Step 2. Then they pick one of the listed groups and describe the images of the group they were exposed to. (What are they like? Why should we fear them or be cautious around them?) This is followed by presentations in plenary and a discussion: How strong is the presence of these images in society? What is their purpose? Who constructs them, how and why?
