The starting point for a discourse analytical approach to the complex phenomenon of discrimination is to realize that racism, as a social practice and as an ideology, manifests itself discursively and thus through a range of discursive and material practices. On the one hand, discriminatory opinions, stereotypes, prejudices and beliefs are produced and reproduced by means of discourse; and through discourse, discriminatory exclusionary practices are prepared, implemented, justified and legitimated. On the other hand, discourse offers a space in which to criticize, delegitimate and argue against racist opinions and practices, that is, to pursue anti-racist strategies.
