On 21 December, the European Parliament Committee on Culture and Education approved the Report on the role of intercultural dialogue, cultural diversity and education in promoting EU fundamental values (Rapporteur: Julie Ward, Socialists & Democrats, UK).
Among other asseverations, the report argues for the European Union to establish the exchange of good practices and promote a new structured dialogue in intercultural and interfaith. It encourages stakeholders to systematize definitions, methods and criteria, while advocating for intercultural and interfaith to be brought to educational, cultural and audio visual fields, as well as integrated in a transversal way to all EU policy areas that impact on shared EU values and rights. Further, the report calls for renewed attention to be paid to the promotion of solidary-based and intercultural society.
