Council of Europe: Intercultural cities - governance and policies for diverse communities

Résumé

Assimilationism and multiculturalism - the most common integration approaches in Europe, have not successfully overcome alienation, segregation, mistrust and fears linked to massive income of migrants or the presence of national minorities. Integration policies can only be successful if the host community regards diversity in a positive way and if governance models, institutions and services adapt to the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural cities pilot programme seeked to develop and promote an intercultural integration model based on the development of spaces, methods and competences to encourage interaction and trust-buidling between ethnic communities.
In the context of the Intercultural cities pilot programme 11 cities review their govenrnace models and policies and develop intercultural strategies with the help of experts and mentors from other cities on the network.
