The Jean Monnet Network on Challenges to Multiculturalism and Multilateralism in Europe and Southeast Asia is a network comprising the EU Centre in Singapore, Universitas Indonesia, University of Malaya and Maastricht University.
This workshop in Singapore is focused on the Challenges to Multiculturalism in Europe and Southeast Asia. The papers to be presented in this workshop seek to examine the recent debates with regards to the retreat from multiculturalism and the challenges that Europe and Southeast Asia face in managing ethnic, religious and cultural diversities as the rise of identity politics began to polarize societies. Topics to be covered include the impact of migration on debates in multiculturalism, the myths and misconceptions surrounding multiculturalism, and the different approaches and policies by specific Southeast Asian or European countries to accommodate and managing diversities and differences.
The papers presented at the Workshop will be published in an edited volume as one of the deliverable of the Jean Monnet Network.
Registration by invitation and prior registration only.
