.In this respect, the manual is intended to provide an overall ramework romwhich you can
pick and choose the posters and issues most relevant to youractivities.
The guide can be used within any country or context as it deals withissues, which are cross-border and universal.
In line with the aim o the poster exhibition, which is to reveal the diverseaces o racism, we have developed the manual in such a way that we havedrawn out and emphasised a particular theme per poster. There are o course a
