Confront Eugenics serves as a unifying platform for various anti-eugenic activities. It aims to consolidate synergies among scholars of eugenics, activists, practitioners, journalists, curators and artists across the world and aspires to build conceptual bridges across academic disciplines and to mobilize communities, while at the same time facilitating public engagement with the history and legacies of eugenics.

Confront Eugenics engages with, and contributes to, a global anti-eugenic movement of reckoning with the past which was prompted by a series of major events organised by From Small Beginnings, including The Anti-Eugenics Project, in 2021 to coincide with the centenary of the Second International Congress of Eugenics.
