Tolerance and the city

Tolerance and the City; Human Interaction in Social and Urban Space
is a research initiative in interdisciplinary studies focused on the humanities and the role of the arts in the establishment of a public sphere that fosters tolerance, democracy, and freedom of expression. In societies and urban contexts of increasing cultural and religious variety, and therefore subject to conflicts and social disruption based on attitudes to gender, race, religion, and culture, the development and enhancement of toleration by the contribution of the arts can hardly be exaggerated, although not sufficiently studied, understood and communicated.
