About the Intercultural Cities Index
Cities participating in the Intercultural cities programme undergo expert and peer reviews of their policies, governance and practice.
This review takes the form of narrative reports and city profiles – a form which is very rich in content and detail but is relatively heavy as a tool to monitor progress and communicate results.
The Intercultural Cities Index is a complementary tool, capable of illustrating visually level of achievement of each city, progress over time, and enabling comparison with other cities. This tool contains a limited number of strong indicators which make it easier to identify and communicate where a city stands in relation to intercultural integration, where effort should be focused in the future and which other cities could be a source of good practice in these particular areas.
