GRITIM-UPF is pleased to invite you to the seminar: 'Debating about diversity in political parties'. To be held next Friday, 24th of January at the Parlament de Catalunya from 9:30 to 14:00.
This seminar will be a setting to discuss the results of the DIVPOL project: Diversity in Political Parties' Programmes, Organisation and Representation, financed by the European Commission and coordinated in Spain by GRITIM-UPF.
Beyond the positive integration of immigrants in the host society, the development of successful functioning processes that favour diversity in the political system is crucial. The DivPol project emphasizes the central role of political parties in this process. Political parties’ abilities to open up to diversity contribute to the improvement of the participation opportunities for people of immigrant origin in the political sphere and as agents of democratic systems.
This seminar’s objective is to look into the political participation practices of immigrants and people of immigrant origin in these organisations; and to identify strategies for future diversity development in political parties.
The whole seminar will be in Catalan and Spanish:
