Abstract

Intercultural approaches to integration—at least at the city level—propose new and potentially productive ways of thinking about social cohesion and inclusion. Given the huge diversity within and among cities, the idea of comparing processes and experiences across the Atlantic can seem somewhat daunting. The participants in the Montreal Forum tended to agree that such a comparison, however ambitious, might help to clarify what is unique about intercultural cities more generally. Discussions during the forum displayed significant rifts and divergences, but they also made it possible to identify five themes that represent significant challenges as intercultural cities move ahead into the next millennium: transversality, mobilization, evaluation, interactions, and belonging.
