Dr. Matteo Gianni

Workshop description

We may hear the words “multiculturalism” and “reasonable accommodations” thrown around in political discourse but do we know what they mean, and do we know what’s involved?

In this two-day workshop, Professor Gianni will take you deep into the ongoing controversial debate about the accommodation of minority groups in Europe and North-America. He will explore the main empirical, analytical, and normative components of the debate, and will focus on the modalities through which specific public policies are mobilized, legitimized, and debated in public space.

He will also address the implications that such policies have on the construction of “other”, and the result in culturally divided societies. The case study of Muslim integration in Europe will be taken as a guiding example in the discussion.

This will be an extremely rich and thought provoking workshop, don’t miss out!
