The Predicament of Intercultural Dialogue

in Cultural Sociology, Vol. 6, Issue 1, pp. 27-44

This article examines the flexibility of the concept of intercultural dialogue with regard to the challenges posed by an increasing multicultural European Union. A European culture has been born out of the 1989 collapse of the Cold war and globalisation which has made the EU vulnerable. The author argues that the concepts of culture, identity and difference are essential in framing intercultural dialogue in the post Cold war globalised context.

Crossing cultural borders?

The focus of this work, result of the European Cultural Policy Research Award 2007 offered by the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) in Amsterdam and the Riksbankens Jubileumsfond in Stockholm, is on how ethnic diversity is experienced in cultural production: more specifically, how ethnic diversity matters in the production and consumption of cultural industry goods. This question becomes extremely pressing and relevant, raising questions about the representations of the world these products put forward, how these representations are shaped and by whom.

Differing Diversities

Cultural diversity, in all its forms, is posing a profound challenge to traditional formulations of cultural policy, and to our understanding of the public interests served by this policy. In most countries the artistic and cultural landscape has not evolved to reflect the realities of a changed social landscape. This rift threatens to undermine the legitimacy of cultural institutions and the public policy that supports them.

This report was published under the title Differing Diversities: Transversal study on the theme of Cultural Policy and Cultural Diversity.

Cultural Diversity in Britain

This study proposes to replace the ‘multiculturalism’ approach in urban policy making with an approach that is focused on ‘interculturalism’. Cities need to facilitate dialogue, exchange and reciprocal understanding between people of different backgrounds to remain competitive on the global stage. The study identifies strategies to help cities unlock the potential of their economic ‘diversity advantage’. The intercultural approach seems to hold potential. The concept of diversity advantage helps to identify the potential economic benefits of diversity.

Libraries for All

Public libraries could be more than just a place to read or borrow books. They can play an important role in raising awareness of different cultures and promoting the integration of minority groups. As libraries operate on a local level, they can have a very direct impact on local communities. This was the starting point of a three-year project coordinated by the Multicultural Centre in Prague. The project is now in its second phase, aiming to disseminate the experience more widely in Europe.
