How can we use partnerships to support positive intercultural relations?
LSE, 27 February 2013
This event was practitioner-led with talks from speakers from the public and voluntary and community sectors who work in the fields of multiculturalism and intercultural relations. The aim of this event was to give greater voice to practitioners to discuss their specific research needs and to establish ways in which the research community could collaborate in the long term with practitioners in joint projects.
