Cities are increasingly recognized as new players in diversity studies, and many of them are showing evidence of an intercultural shift. As an emerging concept and policy, interculturalism is becoming the most pragmatic answer to concrete concerns in cities.
Within this framework, this book covers two major concerns: how to conceptualise and how to implement intercultural policies. Through the use of theoretical and comparative case studies, the current most prominent contributors in the field examine an area that multicultural policies have missed in the past: interaction between people from different cultures and national back-grounds. By compiling the recent research in Europe and elsewhere, this book concludes that intercultural-ism is becoming both an attractive and efficient new paradigm for diversity management.
