New collective book on cultural diversity and conflicts in the EU
After an intense year of preparation, Tirant lo Blanch has published a collective book entitled Cultural diversity and conflicts in the European Union: Legal and political implications [Diversidad cultural y conflictos en la Unión Europea: implicaciones jurídico-políticas], edited by Ángeles Solanes, professor of Legal Philosophy at the University of Valencia. The volume brings together the contributions of nine members of the research project "Human rights, multicultural societies and conflicts" as well as invited authors from the University of Nantes and the University of Oxford. Throughout its 286 pages, it sheds a critical and timely light on vital issues such as local policies in globalised European cities, normative conflicts in the family sphere, manifestations of inter-ethnic violence and the role of cinema as a tool to understand the other. It also reflects on the importance of human rights as a guide to action and a unifying mechanism in order to safeguard pluralism and avoid the stigmatisation and criminalisation of difference.
