Gestion de la integracion en las sociedades multiculturales 02

 

The expert meeting on Integration governance in multicultural societies took place on 7-8 November 2013 at the University of Valencia Law faculty. This event aimed to:

1. Discuss ways of tackling social exclusion through immigrant integration policies and intercultural management;

2. Analyse prominent judicial decisions in the area of cultural conflicts;

3. Identify the consequences of different integration models on the effective enjoyment of basic rights through a comparison of the United Kingdom, Spain and the European Union;

4. Bring together integration experts and create new research networks;

5. Formulate new proposals regarding legal practice.

The meeting gave the members of the R&D project "Human rights, multicultural societies and conflicts" the opportunity to share and comment on the results of their ongoing research. In order to maximise dialogue, some sessions were specifically devoted to questions and comments on the issues raised by the two panels: 1) conflict management in multicultural societies, and 2) integration policies in the European Union. Discussions focused on the comparative analysis of migraton-related conflicts in a number of European countries from a legal, political, sociological and philosophical perspective.
