pdf-intercultural-cities-towards-a-model-for-intercultural-integration

The Intercultural Cities project emerged from the Council of Europe’s White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue. It involved the testing, validation and enhancement of a model for intercultural governance and management at a local level in 22 European cities. Interculturality was examined in real life situations e.g. housing, education, public awareness, policing, urban development, etc. The publication gives an overview of the two-year project, its successes and identifies further issues to be researched.

Policies and Practices for Teaching Sociocultural Diversity – A Framework of Teacher Competences for Engaging with Diversity

policies-and-practices-for-teaching-sociocultural-diversity-a-framework-of-teacher-competences-for-engaging-with-diversityThis publication puts forward 18 “diversity competences” that were identified by a team of European specialists in teacher training between 2006 and 2009. In order to open up the debate on competences, four consultation sessions were organised in Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Estonia. These sessions provided an opportunity to discuss these competences with key players (civil servants, government representatives, teacher trainers, head teachers, researchers, teachers and students) from a national and topic-based perspective. Both the PDF and the printed versions are available upon payment.
