Is Racism overlooked in the (German) healthcare? This question was discussed in a webinar by Amma Yeboah, Collette Gras, and Cengiz Barskanmaz – which was recorded and will be uploaded soon.
Indeed, literature about racism in the German healthcare system, about effects of racist trauma and discrimination and health, about the colonial history of German doctors is hard to find. Especially because most science avoids the key word „racism“.
This is a selection of texts we read in preparation of this event, which does not at all claim to be complete – more the contrary, we are happy to receive any links to add.
