EWRC 2020 - POSITIVE NARRATIVES ON INTEGRATION
Cities across Europe have been developing strategies to address the
rise in xenophobic populism and hate speech reinforced by traditional
and social media, which often act to increase segregation and deepen
divides. The key to this has been developing a city-wide
approach combining strong political leadership with grassroots action
and campaigns by dispelling misinformation and rumours and
deconstructing stereotypes. The aim of this workshop is to share
innovative political strategies and case studies developed by
cities that are part of Rumourless Cities, an URBACT Transfer Network.
