Intercultural Cities Conference

1-3 May 2008,
Liverpool, UK
- conference

Organiser: EUCLID and Comedia

Do diverse cities really have an advantage over culturally homogeneous ones and what can they do to benefit from this advantage? Has multiculturalism failed and what is interculturalism actually about? How can the different cultures present in European cities be encouraged to interact, mix and hybridise to generate a richer common culture? What is the right balance between emphasising difference and celebrating common values? How can media, official political discourse and community actions help create a pluralistic city identity? How can we breed intercultural leadership and innovation? How can we bridge the gap between the insights of the thinkers with the practicality of the doers? The conference served as a launching pad for "Intercultural cities – governance and policies for diverse communities "
