“As a journalist I want to be transparent with my audience about my own biases. Readers need to understand how stories are framed. I want to complicate the narrative and widen the frame.” Amazing presentation by @pkaltzada

“A democratic society develops mechanisms and institutions to allow the coexistance and cooperation of different cultural communities,” says Zora Popova of @ECMIFlensburg at our #NMBR18 summer school. We agree fully!

“The challenges of multiculturalism are not teaching minorities, but majorities. Because school curriculums are politicised we need to teach plural histories & literature to understand who we are today,” says @NasarMeer. #NMBR18 with @ECMIFlensburg

ECMI retweeted

We’re talking about #multiculturalism with @NasarMeer at our #NMBR18 summer school. He says that “States have to recognise difference, not just among individuals but groups too. Local contexts are important in conversations about citizenship, plurality & equality in Europe.”

ECMI retweeted

“Europe needs young people with new ideas and fresh energy, because we need #AnotherEurope,” says our Sec Gen @GDauwen at #NMBR18 summer school opening.

First lecture of #NMBR2018 attacks head on the conundrum of definition: when is a minority a minority? Which markers? Ascriptions? Do we need a definition? Who decides who is a minority? Is it a good term? What do you think?

Our summer school is now officially off to a good start with director @tovemalloy and @IdeasForEurope director Dauwen opening remarks. Looking forward to exchanges and opinions on diversity, heritage and social change #NMBR2018
