The Intercultural city aims at building its policies and identity on the explicit acknowledgement that diversity can be a resource for the development of the society.

The first step is the adoption (and implementation) of strategies that facilitate positive intercultural encounters and exchanges, and promote equal and active participation of residents and communities in the development of the city, thus responding to the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural integration policy model is based on extensive research evidence, on a range of international legal instruments, and on the collective input of the cities member of the Intercultural Cities programme that share their good practice examples on how to better manage diversity, address possible conflicts, and benefit from the diversity advantage.

This section offers examples of intercultural approaches that facilitate the development and implementation of intercultural strategies.

The OXLO guide for equal services is a manual on the city’s internet and intranet webpages, with guidelines for the city’s agencies, districts and services on how to make Oslo a city for all – provide equal opportunities regardless of ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability.

Actions

  • Seminar programme for leaders and employees in municipal agencies and city districts
  • Guidelines - including subsections on queer knowledge and intersectionality
  • PROUD OSLO – Action Plan for Equality and Freedom
  • Oslo’s diversity history – exhibitions in city museums and libraries

The evaluation of the impact is carried out through the analysis of the monitoring of the wider Oslo Extra large strategy but also through the external evaluation of Proud Oslo, combined with a review roundtable talks with stakeholders, planned for autumn 2018.

The Municipal council for migrants (established back in 1985), and the Municipal council on gender and sexual diversity (established in 2017) are among the partners of the project.
