Intersections: Practicing Pluralism

Intersections: Practicing Pluralism

Given the holistic nature of pluralism, many actors and institutions — local, national, global — contribute to pluralism, as do many fields of practice such as international development and other lenses on diversity such as social cohesion. But how exactly do these fields of work relate to pluralism?

To answer this question, the Global Centre for Pluralism has launched Intersections: Practicing Pluralism, a series designed as guides and think pieces for practitioners. Each paper maps an established field of practice or perspective on diversity to identify potential intersections with pluralism.

By helping practitioners apply a pluralism lens to their work and by showing how many fields of practice already contribute to pluralism, our aim is to open a new global conversation about living peacefully with diversity.
