In the face of persistent global challenges — including, among others, inequality, divisive populism and xenophobia, migration and displacement, and violent extremism — we need innovative approaches to address the so-called ‘cultural differences’ in the cultural and social capacities that influence the effectiveness of responses. It is increasingly evident that the success of our government systems, schools and economy depends on harnessing and maximizing the benefit of the growing diversity of backgrounds and perspectives in societies, and on improving communication between and across them. This report introduces a framework for an evidence-based and data-driven application of intercultural dialogue (ICD) to such global challenges. It rests on the premise that ICD – a broad label for many forms of contact, exchange and interaction that facilitate learning and transformative change across real and perceived boundaries between groups and individuals of different ‘cultures’ or identities – is underused as an approach thus far. This is because insufficient evidence exists concerning its effectiveness for creating more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable societies, and not enough is understood about the conditions that enable its success.
