On 1-2 June 2017, the University of Valencia Human Rights Institute organised the III MULTIHURI International conference on human rights, diversity and conviviality, in the framework of the research project "Diversity and conviviality: Human rights as guidelines for action". On that occasion, several researchers presented papers on pressing issues such as cultural and religious discrimination, the social rights of foreigners, the vulnerability of asylum seekers and recent immigrants, as well as transnational activism. Their contributions are now available to the public in the proceedings edited by the conference director, Ángeles Solanes Corella. According to the professor, the texts "illustrate the richness and complementarity of the approaches and methods presented by the participants. Combining legal, political, sociological and philosophical perspectives, each brings a vision to the common project of reforming institutions to guarantee the rights of the subordinated in the era of economic globalisation and the migratory flows in entails".

The III International conference organised by the MULTIHURI research team, focusing on human rights issues in the area of cultural identities, racism, health, education and gender equality, was held at the University of Valencia Law Faculty on 1-2 June 2017. Reflecting the academic and social relevance of the event, over 30 researchers presented communications and posters and another 30 participants joined in to listen to and debate with some 20 prestigious Spanish and international speakers. Recordings of the presentations are available in the "video" section; full texts of some communications will follow in the coming weeks. In the meantime, a selection of the best pictures is displayed below.

On Thursday 1 June, a joint conference by Sami Naïr and Javier de Lucas will open the III International MULTIHURI conference on human rights, diversity and conviviality, to be held at the University of Valencia Law Faculty. Both professors will reflect on the limits of politics and law regarding the recognition of identities. During two days, some 40 speakers will explore issues related to cultural identities, racism and xenophobia, the right to health and education, as well as the relationship between gender and diversity. As explained by Ángeles Solanes, researcher at the University of Valencia Human Rights Institute and director of the conference, "the deficient governance of cultural, including religious, difference creates divisions whose long-term consequences range from racism and xenophobia to terrorist actions". In order to avoid a civilisational regression based on inequality, "it is essential to reflect on how to build a model of peaceful conviviality in pluralistic, diverse societies marked by the impact of migratory flows". An inescapable guide in this endeavour is the "strict respect for human rights, understood from their international standards and the basic principles of the rule of law and democracy".
