Conference on Cultural Bridges
London, March 20th – 22nd: The 2013 Conference on Cultural Bridges.
Bureau Adekus, 19-Feb-2013
In our globalized world, Multiculturalism can be viewed as a natural phenomenon and result of the ever-changing global migration patterns. Many countries such as the UK, Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, USA, Australia, and Canada are constantly engaging with active multiculturalism policies, which are continually being amended and reinvented.
The pattern and process of multiculturalism is in fact transforming and increasing following economic, social and political changes in an interdependent and globalized world. It is therefore, essential that governments do not negate from the need to integrate their minority populations, while accepting and accommodating for diversity through policies that ensure better and sustained cultural cohesion.
The 2013 Cultural Bridges in United Kingdom Conference will offer therefore a wide diversity of perspectives on the issue of intercultural relations internationally with a particular focus on the UK. The Conference will create and provide a proposal document that will be presented to the international community on how to overcome multicultural challenges. In addition the proposal document will offer best practices to achieve a successful and harmonic multicultural society. The Conference will also examine, in depth, different examples and best practices of Cultural Diplomacy that might be applied in a different context.
Speakers during the Conference will include leading figures and experts from international politics, economics, academia, diplomacy, civil society, and the private sector. The speakers will also include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board. For further information on the ICD Advisory Board, please click here.
