We are pleased to inform you that Prof. Ricard Zapata-Barrero will launch his new book Intercultural Citizenship in the Post-Multicultural Era as an inaugural act of a series of conferences that will be held within the framework of a future National Pact for Interculturalism.

This book explores the intercultural policy paradigm emerging within diversity and migration studies. Drawing on empirical studies of cultural diversity and placing a focus on the current crises of identity in Europe, Prof. Ricard Zapata-Barrero argues for an intercultural model of citizenship that prioritises contact between diverse people. In looking forward to a post-multicultural era, his analysis suggests how we can better manage the challenges presented by our increasingly complex, multifaceted societies. This thoughtful text will appeal to students and scholars across politics, sociology, anthropology and social psychology, as well as policy makers and social entrepreneurs around the world grappling with issues around migration, diversity and citizenship.

In this first session, Prof. Ricard Zapata-Barrero will launch his book and discuss in a roundtable its key arguments and core perspectives that constitute the focus of his book.

Date and Time: Wednesday September 18th, 2019, at 17:00hrs.

Place: Auditorium of the Catalan Government’s Secretariat for Equality, Migration and Citizenship in Barcelona (Carrer Calàbria, 147).
