Montreal International Symposium on Interculturalism

By April 13, 2013No Comments

Advocates on interculturalism have been meeting in Montreal (12th April, 2013) to develop the concept and to provide a compelling programme for policy makers and practitioners. Academics and policy makers from Spain, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Canada, Germany and the UK (represented by Ted Cantle and Phil Wood) have thrashed out new ways of promoting the ideas and putting them into practice. Ted Cantle said ‘this is both necessary and urgent, there is little confidence in the multicultural model and we need the progressive alternative of interculturalism to attract support and to make sense of the era of globalisation and super-diversity’. Expect to see some new publications later this year and for the international networks to grow.
