Diversity Within Unity Project Conference

Date: April 26, 2006
Location: Brussels, Belgium

The Diversity Within Unity Project at George Washington University is organizing a conference on the rights and responsibilities of immigrants and their new homelands. We are happy to report that British Minister of State for Immigration and Citizenship Tony McNulty, and British MP David Willetts will participate. Other public leaders are to be announced. Participation is by invitation only. Interested parties should be email kbell05@gwu.edu for more information.

The approach that will be discussed at the meeting is called “Diversity Within Unity: Rights and responsibilities of immigrants and their new homeland.” Diversity Within Unity aims to change the contours of the debate by positing an alternative to strict assimilation and unbounded multiculturalism. The position, detailed in a platform available at http://www.gwu.edu/~ccps/dwu_positionpaper.html, focuses on fostering both respect for the whole and respect for all. The purpose of the meeting in April will be to explore the merits and challenges of this approach and elaborate on its policy implications in Europe.
