The III MULTIHURI International conference on human rights, diversity and conviviality will be held on 1-2 June 2017 at the University of Valencia Law Faculty. The meeting will pursue four objectives: 1) identify obstacles to intercultural conviviality in the migration context of Spain, France, Italy, the United Kingdom and Canada; 2) analyse the impact of human rights institutions on processes of ethnic minority stigmatisation and discrimination, taking into account the gender dimension; 3) describe experiences of civic mobilisation in favour of the rights of migrants and their descendants, as well as the results obtained; 4) formulate jurisprudential, legislative and administrative proposals to guarantee equality and promote inclusion in diverse societies. The activity is aimed at professors, researchers and students as well as professionals and activists interested in these issues.
Renowned Spanish and international scholars will explore contemporary problems in the area of cultural identities, racism and xenophobia, the right to health and education, as well as the relationship between gender and diversity. These presentations will be complemented with several panels of communications on the same themes.
