Christian Missions and Churches - Between Racism and Respect

The history of Europe's worldwide missionary activities is ambivalent: there are examples of respectful encounters as well as Western arrogance or even racist behaviour. How are mission history and today's church relations perceived from perspectives in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe? We will discuss with experts from four continents what we can learn from history in order to deal with racism and discrimination today.
