Mirjana Kirchmaier onderzocht in samenwerking met Schoolclash haar Bachelor thesis voor de studie Cultureel werk aan de Hogeschool van Potsdam  verschillende methodes en theorieen, hoe men moeilijke interculturele taboethema´s in een multiculturele setting bespreekbaar kan maken. Deze methoden kunnen nuttig zijn voor het onderwijs, in jeugdclubs en in interculturele organisaties. Het onderzoek is hier gratis in te kijken en te downloaden. Abstract The following thesis is concerned with taboos, stereotypes and prejudice in intercultural youth work. The association Schoolclash e.V. organises international youth exchange programs and faces situations where different cultural and religious imprints of the participants lead to issues. To handle these issues professionally Schoolclash is in need of theoretical and methodological approaches towards the problems. Therefore this thesis adduces theoretical knowledge about for instance intercultural learning and findings from research like the contact hypothesis and the “Breitenbach Studie” as a basis for the work with taboos, stereotypes and prejudice. Subsequently concrete methods from the Anti-Bias approach and the “Toolbox Religion” are introduced. In order to prevent and deal with conflicting situations, finally conversation techniques like moderation, mediation and the Socratic method are suggested.
