A Making Of Citizenship Conference

How diversity and migration enhance participative democracy?

The Bordesley Centre (Muath Trust), Stratford Road, Birmingham, B11 1AR

29 September 2016 – 5pm to 7pm

Meeting will take place in the Conference Suite room

organized by the Birmingham City Council  and the French Institute of International Relations (Ifri)

The challenges faced by local democracy in Britain today can illuminate our understanding of the complex interplay between multiculturalism, immigration, and participative democracy in Europe. Migrants and minority groups are more often than not put in a remote position and have very little say on the policies that affect them. On the other hand, however, migration and multiculturalism also enhance civic participation, given the conditions for equal participation and inclusion are provided. In that context, cities are key to bridge the gap between migrants and minority groups and local and national institutions. They play a significant role in supporting immigrants’ participation and dialogue within society.   

The French Institute of International Relations (Ifri) and the Birmingham City Council are pleased to invite you to a meeting that will emphasize the positive impact diversity can have on participative democracy. This meeting will bring together community groups in Birmingham to share their experience and engage in a discussion with elected representatives from Athens, Birmingham, Budapest, Lisbon and Paris. 

This event is part of a series of meetings of a group of local representatives from six multicultural cities in Europe (Amsterdam, Athens, Birmingham, Budapest, Lisbon and Paris), addressing the role of elected representatives in the production of an active and inclusive citizenship in Europe, as part of the “Making of Citizenship” project. 

For more information and registration, please contact Manraj Mander (m.j.mander@outlook.com), local project coordinator
