Intercultural Dialogue Index (ICDI)

About the Intercultural Dialogue Index (ICDI)

The Intercultural Dialogue Index (ICDI) is an index developed by ADI researchers to measure the prevalence and extent of intercultural dialogue (ICD) at a national level across countries. The index uses publicly accessible data, and applies methods that allow for replication, upgrading and comparability with relevant indices.

We assessed the prevalence of ICD in 51 countries, based on three interrelated dimensions covering legislative, structural, and intercultural environments. Altogether, we identified 31 indicators, grouped under 10 broad components, to capture both macro- and micro-level factors affecting or contributing to intergroup relationships nationally and globally.
