Abstract

This chapter offers a much-needed summary of the key moments, processes and methodologies involved in making space for intercultural policies and practices in the city of Barcelona. Focusing on context and the interplay between stakeholders at various levels, the chapter also draws attention to some of the main obstacles encountered and uses a broad perspective to facilitate a better understanding of the opportunities and strategies put in place to bridge the gap when going from policy to practice and back again. As well as looking at conceptual issues from a dynamic perspective, the authors present specific examples of intervention in an effort to provide greater insight into how the common principles of interculturality may be implemented in practice and enriched in culturally diverse urban contexts.
