Open discussion on ‘Intercultural Dialogue’ was held in the Svilara Cultural Station in order to foster international dialogue between different communities and political stakeholders in Europe, as well as to prevent discrimination and stigmatization of minority groups.
The focus of the public discussion was on ‘Strategies and policies for the implementation of joint action of cities and citizens for intercultural dialogue’, and the following spoke on the topic: Zorana Milovanović (European Movement in Serbia), Aleksandra Šanjević (Open Society Foundations), Milena Dragićević Šešić (Professor Emeritus of FDA) and Tomislav Longinović (Professor of Slavic Studies and Literature, University of Wisconsin-Madison), while the conversation was moderated by Aleksandra Đurić Bosnić, editor of the ‘Interculturality’ magazine.
The project is funded by the ‘Europe for Citizens’ fund.
‘European Towns Fostering Intercultural Dialogue and Combatting Discrimination of Migrants and Minorities’ is a long-term project of 15 European cities and organizations from 14 countries, working together to promote intercultural dialogue and inclusion of migrants and minorities.
Local debates are conducted in order to understand the problems that people face, and citizens who participate can highlight policies that work, point out problems at an early stage and give ideas on improving local policies for all.
