An Intercultural Cities Milestone Event: Making Diversity work for Cities
(Communication - EU-wide - English)

Begin 06/02/2013 - 00:00

End 08/02/2013 - 00:00

Venue Dublin

Organiser Council of Europe / Irish EU Presidency/Andorran Council of Europe Chairmanship

Website http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/cultureheritage/culture/cities/Dublin/event_en.asp

In 2008 the Council of Europe and the European Commission, together with a group of pioneer cities, took a challenge: to develop and test a culturally competent approach to integrating diverse communities. The Intercultural cities initiative was born.

At the heart of this novel approach to integration lies the concept of Diversity advantage. The Dublin milestone event will be an opportunity to take stock of what cities have achieved, what works and what does not, and under which conditions, what challenges remain and how they can be addressed together with partners from other networks and organisations.

In Dublin we will discuss the following questions:

  • What does diversity advantage mean in practice and how can different kinds of urban policies be shaped through the intercultural lens?
  • How can cities develop a strategic approach to the diversity advantage?
  • Is the concept supported by research evidence?

Over 60 cities in Europe and beyond have joined the Intercultural cities programme and pursue the diversity advantage. At the Dublin event these cities will share their experience and learning:

  • What does diversity advantage mean in practice and how can different kinds of urban policies be shaped through the intercultural lens?
  • What intercultural strategies have cities adopted? How have they managed to build broad local partnerships to ensure grassroots involvement, transverality and sustainability? What challenges are they facing and how are they dealing with them?
  • How can cities demonstrate the reality of diversity advantage? Is the concept supported by research evidence? How can the results be assessed?
