Intercultural Citizenship in Kaleidoscop
The project aims to promote civic and intercultural literacy, understood as promoting the learning of full citizenship and empowerment of vulnerable people. (immigrants, unemployed, people with disabilities, etc.)
It focuses on three cross-cutting issues to citizen participation : literacy , citizenship equality between all people and interculturalism .
The project aims to explore and analyze the barrieres to citizen participation, whether related to gender issues, gender origin, language, culture, housing, mobility, employment and working conditions. The objectif is to integrate this dimension of barriers in the activities to promote citizenship.
The overall objective of the project is to promote comparative analysis and ownership among partners , practices, methodologies, tools , skills and expertise of each organization in the above areas .
Having specific goals : Identify various barriers to citizenship; meet to develop, discover, methodological mutualisation and innovative pedagogies to overcome these barriers; being aware of the reality of citizen participation in our countries.
Meetings are held in each country to interact with public and private actors on the field, target audiences and discover programs, existing projects and actions on different topics and in their real context.
Topics of the project :
Even if the citizenship participation has a large and diverse pan of topics, we would like to focus on :
the reception and the integration policy of the refugees . One and the other are linked. If there is a political will to welcome the migrants, there is a good integration policy, if it is the opposite, the policy of integration and rights are violated.
We have to ask the right questions and try to understand. It would be interesting to mainstream employment and representations on this issue on the part of Europeans. Do migrants really take the employment of people in place?
The other issue is that in a lot of situations , it is the people of immigrant origin who are against migrants. How is this possible ?
We know tat the questions are not easy, but let’s try through concrete actions and interviews with people to put some ideas one near an other.
