LUCIDE is a network which is developing ideas about how to manage multilingual citizen communities. We are building up a picture of how communication occurs in multilingual settings across the EU and beyond. We aim to help institutions (councils, schools, hospitals) and local and national economies make better productive use of diversity as an economic resource and to strengthen social cohesion by fostering better communication and mutual understanding. We also want to understand better how the cultural richness of these new cities can strengthen the “diverse unity “of the 21st century.
ELIAMEP is looking for a Researcher to take a leading role in the ELIAMEP migration research team in cooperation with Prof. Anna Triandafyllidou, currently head of this team.
The appointment is full time or almost full time and requires a regular presence at the office.
The successful candidate should be prepared to start on 1 October 2012. The appointment will be for a six-month probation period initially, renewable then for a year.
Application deadline: 10 July 2012.
Etnoporno (“Etnoporr”) er et nytt begrep som har blitt tatt i bruk i Sverige de senere årene, ettersom innvandringen har økt. Teaterstykket med samme navn er skrevet av den svenske aktivisten, debattøren og politikeren America Vera-Zavalas. Den moderne historien er skrevet som en monolog, og er en rå og modig kommentar til dagens multikulturelle samfunn.

Knowledge, comparison and exchange are at the heart of all succesful initiatives and projects designed to fight the problems of racism and discrimination. Meeting people and getting to know them better are the starting points for overcoming fear and prejudice, which in the majority of cases give rise to social exclusion.
Meeting people is the cornerstone of the Antiracist World Cup. A coming together of all types of diversity: culture, colour, religion, social groups (ultras), sexual orientation, gender, age, etc. The Antiracist World Cup began life as a simple demonstration and with time has been transformed into a genuine laboratory of ideas. The event has given birth to parallel projects, cooperation between different groups and concrete action that takes place throughout the year.
