The Intercultural Cities programme is happy to publish the policy brief “Rethinking welcoming policies from an intercultural perspective”.
The policy brief is a tool targeting public administrations and other entities working with migrant and refugee welcoming and reception, and aims to facilitate discussion amongst those working within the field as well as to assist them in identifying challenges and in finding new ways of addressing them through the intercultural integration approach. This policy brief is the first of a series of policy guidance prepared to build local authorities’ capacity to respond to situations of crisis, including the challenges resulting from the Russian Federation’s aggression against Ukraine. The brief is partly based on a paper produced by the working group on welcoming policies set up by the Spanish Network of Intercultural Cities (RECI) in 2021. The French version will be available soon.
