First case study published!
The International Observatory of Mayors on Living Together is pleased to announced that the first case study of one of its member cities has been published.
The case study about the Liason Officers Program in Montréal, was prepared by Bob White, director of the Intercultural Relations Research Laboratory (LABRRI) of the Université de Montréal and Nathalie Martin, advisor at the Direction des Bibliothèques, Ville de Montréal.
This study is part of the work of the Board of Partners in Montréal. To date, some 15 cities in Europe, Africa and North America have created a partners' council for the Observatory. This new form of collaboration between cities and universities can help identify initiatives around Living Together and produce original research on the basis of this double expertise. This research will make it possible to understand the scope of the selected initatives and is likely to inspire other cities.
This study is the first of a series of publications and the result of the first concrete collaboration between a city and a university within the Observatory, to document best practices in diversity management.
