For PIE, 2013 ends in the knowledge that a chapter closes. Under the Creative Europe programme (2014-2021) support to Structured Dialogue Platforms, of which PIE was one of three, is no longer foreseen. The 2013 “Evaluation of the Open Method of Coordination and the Structured Dialogue as the Agenda for Culture’s implementing tools at European Union level” found a “lack of common understanding about ownership of the Structured Dialogue and how it should work in practice. … Each Platform developed its own management structures and organizational arrangements leading to very different approaches.”

We celebrate our contribution to this chapter nevertheless with the publication of PIE Discussion Paper #3 which documents our input to the OMC work on intercultural dialogue – see below.

The PIE board has just met and affirmed that our mission of promoting intercultural dialogue as a means to enable the free, full and equal participation of Europe’s diverse people remains as needed as ever. Our “Brokering Migrants’ Cultural Participation” project will be one way of realising our mission in 2014 and beyond. We will work with our members to sustain and further build PIE as a cross-sectoral platform as our mission requires.

We take a break to get ready for the challenges of the New Year. Best wishes to our members & supporters as they do the same!
