The landmark UNESCO publication, Agree to Differ, was launched on Tuesday 18th May, on Day One of the 3rd World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue in Baku. This book is part of a celebration of the International Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures which runs from 2013 to 2022. Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) accepted an invitation to provide a contribution to the publication and Director Tracey McIntosh has written a section titled ‘Sites of understanding and transformation: Māori and cross-cultural research’. The publication includes contributions from many esteemed academics and authors from around the globe, detailing their work in enhancing the mutual understanding and reciprocal knowledge of cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity, conributing to the ongoing reconciliation efforts between cultures, building frameworks for commonly shared values which foster social cohesion, proposing and disseminating intercultural dialogue through education and the media and fostering conversations around sustainable development and its ethical, social and cultural dimensions. NPM has been asked to host a copy of the book on our website, and a digital version can now be accessed below.
