Free Content Collection: Celebrate World Day for Cultural Diversity
Join us in celebrating World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development (#WorldDiversityDay), observed annually on May 21st. A special collection of the latest research from a variety of disciplines to share knowledge on this important subject is free to access until June 30th 2018
Former Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova commented on the importance of this world focus day:
“Even as we celebrate cultural diversity today, we must remember that cultural diversity is increasingly under threat. Across the world, violent extremists have targeted cultural minorities and destroyed our shared heritage, to weaken the essential links between people and their history. At another level, unchecked urban development threatens to standardize our cities, depleting their social diversity and identities.”
“Today is an opportunity for us all to celebrate the tremendous benefits of cultural diversity, including humanity’s rich intangible heritage, and to reaffirm our commitment to building a more peaceful world, founded on the values of mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue.”
Four thematic collections covering Historical & Current Events; Growth & Learning; Arts & Culture; and Research Across the Board are free to read until June 30th 2018.
This free collection includes articles from research journals including Social Development, Sociology Compass, Journal of Social Issues, Journal of Applied Social Psychology, The Journal of American Culture, Social and Personality Psychology Compass, Asian Social Work and Policy Review, Child & Family Social Work, Child Development, Journal of Research On Adolescence, Sociological Forum, Gender, Work & Organization, Journal of Family Theory & Review, Journal of Public Affairs, and many more.
