Intercultural cities : towards a model for intercultural integration : insights from the Intercultural Cities Programme, joint action of the Council of Europe and the European Commission / edited by Phil Wood
- "City-to-city mentoring and learning have played a key role in ... intercultural integration [adding] another dimension to the management of culturally diverse populations, compared to previous models, in particular multiculturalism. In addition to non-discrimination, equal opportunities and cultural rights, interculturalism focuses on building trust and cohesion by encouraging interaction and mixing between cultural groups in the public realm and encouraging a positive discourse and attitude to diversity within the community. It also focuses on improving the efficiency of public services by making them more culturally sensitive and adapted to the needs of diverse users, and on the need for specific services such as those dealing with intercultural mediation and conflict prevention."--Page  of cover..
