What happened in the Year of Intercultural Dialogue?
A statistical portrait of the European Union 2008 - European Year of Intercultural Dialogue has been made available.
This Eurostat brochure celebrates the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue 2008 which aims to promote dialogue, knowledge and skills enabling all persons living in Europe to deal with a more complex society; a society which should be open to the world and respectful of cultural diversity, while being based on a set of common values.
The brochure presents statistical data on areas which deal with various aspects of multicultural societies that are likely to promote dialogue.
The brochure is intended to give an idea of the range of European statistics available in this area, but in no way is it a comprehensive picture of all data available concerning the topic in question. Data are provided for a wide range of statistical areas, usually for the European Union total (EU-27) and the Member States.
When available, information is also presented for the candidate countries, EFTA countries, as well as other countries.
