    ECTR Announces Research Grants and Kantor Prize for Secure Tolerance
     
    The ECTR announces the establishment of the Kantor Prize for Secure Tolerance, which is named after ECTR’ President and award founder Moshe Kantor.
      
    The Prize will amount to one million Euro and will be awarded bi-annually. The first recipient is to be selected in 2020.
      
    Kantor Prize for Secure Tolerance will be awarded for original thinking and research on how the theory and practice of tolerance should be re-imagined to meet the new challenges of a globalized world and the highly diverse and sometimes fragmented societies it contains.
     
     
    In the recent past tolerance has been understood in negative terms as a condition that exists whenever human rights are properly respected.  Understood in this way tolerance is a by-product of a right-based society, which can be promoted by a policy of non-interference in basic freedoms. But tolerance that is based only or mainly on a passive approach of this kind cannot be secure when society contains groups and movements that do not accept the value of peaceful coexistence that tolerance serves.
