The London Conference on Cultural Bridges

“State Multiculturalism: An Interdisciplinary Analysis of Political, Economic, and Cultural Dimensions”

(London, March 20th – 22nd, 2013)

www.uk-multiculturalism.org

In our globalized world, Multiculturalism can be viewed as a natural phenomenon and result of the ever-changing global migration patterns. Many countries such as the UK, Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, USA, Australia, and Canada are constantly engaging with active multiculturalism policies, which are continually being amended and reinvented.

The pattern and process of multiculturalism is in fact transforming and increasing following economic, social and political changes in an interdependent and globalized world. It is therefore, essential that governments do not negate from the need to integrate their minority populations, while accepting and accommodating for diversity through policies that ensure better and sustained cultural cohesion.

The London Conference on Cultural Bridges will offer therefore a wide diversity of perspectives on the issue of intercultural relations internationally with a particular focus on the UK. The Conference will create and provide a proposal document that will be presented to the international community on how to overcome multicultural challenges. In addition the proposal document will offer best practices to achieve a successful and harmonic multicultural society. The Conference will also examine, in depth, different examples and best practices of Cultural Diplomacy that might be applied in a different context.

The Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights

“Human Rights Protection & International Law: The Multifaceted Dilemma of Restraining and Promoting International Interventions”

Co-hosted by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy & Ministry of Interior of Iceland

(Reykjavik, Iceland; April 10th – 13th, 2013)

www.reykjavikcongress.org

The international community acknowledges the increasing and persistent cases of mass atrocities and crimes against humanity occurring on a vast scale.

Understanding the complexity in bringing these crimes to an end, the Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights aims to argue and debate the notion of the responsibility to protect from a human rights perspective, taking into account the divergent dimensions in restraining or promoting international intervention.

Through the discussions and exchange of this conference we aim to consider the current most vehement cases of human rights violations, and further comprehend the varied issues and approaches to these mass atrocities and crimes against humanity from a theoretical perspective, analyzing the complex layers and structures, and taking into account the ethical dilemma surrounding the responsibility to protect and international intervention.

The 2013 Congress will create and publish a discussion document that will be presented to the international community on how to overcome the dilemma of restraining and promoting all forms of International Interventions based on coordinated global coalition efforts between governments, NGOs and International Institutions.
