Since the summer of 2012, the city of Valencia and Fundación CeiMigra have been conducting an in-depth study on the use of public places by local ethnic communities. On 10 March, based on their recently published findings, María Jesús Felipe and Pere Climent, from the municipal department of Social Welfare and Integration, presented a seminar on "Public spaces and ethnic relations in Valencia", addressing the ways in which local authorities can contribute to the prevention of conflicts linked to the enjoyment of urban facilities.
The presentation took place within the Seminar series on conflicts, multiculturalism and public policy: case studies, held from February to May 2015 in order to bring together researchers, public officials, civil society representatives and members of R&D project "Human rights, multicultural societies and conflicts" with an interest in legal and political instruments to prevent and resolve ethnocultural conflicts.
