Intercultural Dialogue Global Index (ICDI)

ICDI is a new transparent index for measuring the extent to which Intercultural Dialogue (ICD) is being pursued and implemented as a diversity management tool across countries.

What is Intercultural Dialogue?

ICD refers to a process of contact, interaction and exchange of views on the basis of equality, respect, and mutual understanding between individuals or groups from diverse backgrounds. It was first proposed in public policy with the publication of the White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue (Council of Europe, 2008). ICD seeks to manage super-diversity through dialogue and respectful reciprocal interaction.
