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, 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. Ricard Zapata-Barrero is a Professor of Political and Social Sciences at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. He is also Director of the Interdisciplinary Research Group on Immigration at UPF, on the Board of Directors for IMISCOE, an expert on the Intercultural Cities Program, and founded the Intercultural Cities Network in Spain in 2014. Additionally, he is a Compendium expert within the Council of Europe.
