How it works

The Key to the Platform for Intercultural Europe

Participation - Membership

In its first two years, simple participation was key to the then "Rainbow Platform". In October 2008, it established legally as the "Platform for Intercultural Europe", and in May 2009 it became possible for organisations to join as members.

The Organisations

See the list of member organisations. Beyond that, a large number of organisations have signed the Rainbow Paper as a commitment to our vision. See list of endorsements.

The Board of the Platform for Intercultural Europe is elected by the General Assembly of Members. Candidates are fielded by member organisations and elected in a personal capacity for a representative mandate of three years.

Each Board member works in one or two of the sub-groups:

  • Advocacy and Institutional Relations 
  • Rainbow Paper implementation activities 
  • Membership development and communications 
  • Finances, fundraising and administrative support.
