Examples of best practice
In order to make the White Paper as relevant as possible for practical initiatives promoting intercultural dialogue in the various contexts, the Council of Europe will collect examples of best practice and make them available to the public. The power of good examples is usually much stronger than the effects of abstract principles.
What is an example of best practice?
For selecting examples of best practice, the Council of Europe will apply a number of loosely defined criteria. In order to qualify, projects or programmes must be able to show that they:
- promote intercultural dialogue;
- achieved their aims;
- can be managed within a given budget and framework;
- can be continued beyond the experimental period (which very often profits from an exceptional funding opportunity)
- allow repetition and adaptation by other organisers, in other countries and in other cultures
In the context of the White Paper, examples of best practice can relate to one or several of the main areas of intercultural dialogue. They can be proposed by everybody and every institution.
