Challenges of contemporary diverse societies:
How to deal with multicultural diversity and to provide effective participation in public life of national minorities?
Today almost is non-sense to speak about ethnic, religious and linguistic homogeneous societies in the World. Issue of cultural diversity recognition as well as its managing, also intercultural communication etc., have become more and more prominent in the public life, but until relatively recently, little had been researched and written on these issues, and even now, many states, institution, organizational managers etc., have no strategy or plan how to deal with managing of racial, ethnic, religious, or cultural diversity, with communication problems, even though most living places and workplaces are inhabited and staffed by people of diverse cultures and identities.
Lecturers and lectures:
“European legal and institutional framework of minority rights protection”
“Challenges in human and minority rights protection in multicultural societies”
“Contemporary identities, ethnicity, diverse societies, multiculturalism and inter-cultural communications”
“Media and diverse societies” (on cooperation with Marina Tuneva M.A.- lecturer in a School for Journalism and Public Relations- Skopje )
Presentations are multi-disciplinary combining law, political sciences, anthropology and sociology.
