ACCEPT PLURALISM European Conference in Nicosia, Cyprus
The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies is organizing the first ACCEPT PLURALISM European Conference in Nicosia, Cyprus, on Tolerance, Pluralism and Social Cohesion: Responding to the Challenges of the 21st Century in Europe.
This conference is organized within the framework of the project Tolerance, Pluralism and Social Cohesion: Responding to the Challenges of the 21st Century in Europe - ACCEPT PLURALISM - funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme, DG Research, Social Sciences and Humanities.
The aim of the conference is to present the main findings of the research undertaken across Europe in relation to tolerance and intolerance on political and civic participation and diversity. Further, the conference aims to discuss the (in)visibility of the gender dimension in discourses and policies on tolerance, pluralism and multiculturalism in Europe and provide insights on its relevance as an analytical tool and in the formulation of policy.
This two-day conference brings together the partners of the ACCEPT Pluralism project, as well as external scholars, social and political actors from different countries, women’s rights organisations as well as anti-racism and migrant networks in order to reflect upon and discuss the results of the project and to share their own experiences in addressing (in)tolerance in political and public life.
