Today, we would like to draw your attention to a ‘sister blog’ of ours: Deviance Incubator.

Deviance Incubator is an IMARC student initiative. It contains blog posts written by our international group of master’s students with diverse (research) interests, covering different topics with a transnational scope.

This blog aims to challenge common sense assumptions about the world through a critical approach; provide thorough, academically-informed analysis of recent phenomena; popularise the latest scientific findings; spread knowledge on students’ research interests; and enhance critical thinking and dialogue with their readers!

Recent noteworthy posts include an interesting analysis of the current situation in France in light of the ‘law on Separatism’ and colonial heritage, the perpetuation of the Indian caste system and the election of Russia to the board of the United Nations Human Rights Council. Please take a look around on the blog’s website and see for yourself!

With the far-right terror attack in Hanau in 2020, Germany witnessed yet another act of right-wing extremist violence, resulting in the death of 9 people with foreign roots. In this blog post, Anna Merz raises the question why, and how authorities still fail to recognise the far-reaching problem of structural racism, racist attacks, and the existence of neo-Nazi networks in Germany.
