About Me

Emine bridges her academic and activist work because she believes that these areas need to go hand in hand. As an intersectional activist she is connected very well with representatives from various but especially muslim communities.


This is crucial for her work because she follows the principle that you cannot be an ally to a community you do not have any realtionships with. These networks and relationships have to been build in order to work together for intersectional justice.


Emine organised various bigger events and lectures on anti-racism and sexism. She also co initiated nationwide and even international social media campaigns about racism and sexism (#campusrassismus, #ausnahmslos). She regularly gets invited to speak on issues like intersectional justice, web activism, anti muslim racism, postcolonial theories and women´s rights. She mostly speaks infront of big audiences but is also used to speak for small workshops constellations, or even for public television.

Emine published various papers in academic and essayistic books, mostly about institutional racism in Germany.


She lives by these words of Cornell West: "Justice is what Love looks like in Public."
