Interculturalism in Cities. Concept, Policy and Implementation

Edited by Ricard Zapata-Barrero, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2015, 224 pages, ISBN 9781784715311, ISBN 9781784715311

Cities are increasingly recognized as new players in diversity studies, and many of them are showing evidence of an intercultural shift. As an emerging concept and policy, interculturalism is becoming the most pragmatic answer to concrete concerns in cities. Within this framework, the book covers two major concerns: how to conceptualize and how to implement intercultural policies. Through the use of theoretical and comparative case studies, the current most prominent contributors in the field examine an area that multicultural policies have missed in the past: interaction between people from different cultures and national backgrounds. By compiling recent research in Europe and elsewhere, this book concludes that interculturalism is becoming both an attractive and efficient new paradigm for diversity management.
