The III MULTIHURI International conference on human rights, diversity and conviviality was held at the University of Valencia Law Faculty on 1-2 June 2017. The meeting pursued four objectives: 1) identify the obstacles to intercultural convivality in the migration context of Spain, France, Italy, the United Kingdom and Canada; 2) analyse the impact of human rights institutions on processes of ethnic minority stigmatisation and discrimination, taking into account the gender dimension; 3) describe experiences of civic mobilisation in favour of the rights of migrants and their descendants, as well as the results obtained; 4) formulate jurisprudential, legislative and administrative proposals to guarantee equality and promote inclusion in diverse societies.
Renowned Spanish and international scholars explored contemporary problems in the area of cultural identities, racism and xenophobia, the right to health and education, as well as the relationship between gender and diversity. Reflecting the academic and social relevance of the event, more than 30 researchers presented communications and posters and another 30 participants joined in to listen to and debate with some 20 prestigious Spanish and international speakers. Recordings of the presentations are available in the "video" section.
