Intercultural Cities is a long-term Council of Europe action that promotes an intercultural approach to diversity management and migrants’ integration in view of building more inclusive societies. Intercultural Cities is also a global network of municipalities that believe and prove that diversity, if managed responsibly and skillfully, is a major asset for European societies, not a threat. These cities rely on people, officials and political leaders that take actions and produce knowledge and expertise from everyday life. Confronted to the governance of a more and more intense mobility across boarders, the Intercultural Cities work both on policies design and on concrete and immediate actions. The strong interlinks between policies and actions are beneficial though: policies reply to existing needs and actions; actions are guided and framed by policies. At the centre, there are people, communities, residents, citizens.
