A propos de ce titre
This volume has emerged out of a collaborative Network of Excellence (NoE) research project funded by the European Commission. The NoE is designed to strengthen excellence on 'Sustainable Development in a Diverse World' by integrating European research capabilities across disciplines and countries to provide society and polity with instruments and tools for managing cultural diversity as a key element of a new strategy for sustainable development. The NoE, which comprises 32 Institutes from Europe and beyond, has led to a growing realization: that scholars and practitioners need to be aware of each others' intellectual inspiration when approaching the sensitive question of the relationship between cultural diversity and sustainable development, with the view to setting out policy recommendations which have wide application. The research provides a bridge across the linguistic and intellectual traditions that currently set apart scholars and practitioners in the field of diversity management. The bibliography is drawn from each of the partners active within the NoE, representing Europe and key nations such as India, where diversity is embraced as the essence of society and development. Abstracts are provided in English, and the bibliography will support cross-cultural understanding of issues surrounding diversity and its management in society. The articles and books annotated comprise both classical works and contemporary perspectives, allowing better communication across linguistic barriers on issues that affect chiefly the management of organizations and cities in Europe. The book is a vital tool for anybody conducting primary research in the implementation of diversity regulation, and it is an inspiration for practitioners in the field of diversity management and policy implementation. It features Subject, Discipline, Geographic, and Diversity indexes, which will enable searches to be conducted across cultural perspectives.About the Author:
