NEW CHAPTER: "THE DIVERSITY VALUE: SPAIN. INTEGRATING THIRD COUNTRY NATIONALS IN ANDALUSIA"
In the chapter we discuss on how all these aspects have an impact on social integration of immigrants and social cohesion in contemporary societies, and how diversity enrich Europe. We finish proposing some key areas where new policies or tools could be developed in order to encourage the reinforcement of integration of immigrants and interculturality. The DIVERSE project – Diversity Improvement as a Viable Enrichment Resource for Society and Economy was supported by the European Commission through the European Integration Fund (Grant Agreement No. HOME/2012/EIFX/CA/CFP/4248 *30-CE0586564/00-20).
