The FACULTY FOR SOCIAL WELLBEING
in collaboration with the EU funded Re.Cri.Re Project
would like to invite you to the Symposium:

MULTICULTURALISM, INTEGRATION AND CONTACT
AMONGST SOCIO-ETHNIC GROUPS IN MALTA

@: University of Malta, Valletta Campus

This symposium will discuss findings from two international studies concerning intercultural relations in Malta led by Dr Gordon Sammut (Psychology Lab). The first study (MIRIPS) investigated acculturation attitudes and expectations amongst six socio-ethnic groups in Malta. The study tested three hypotheses concerning Multiculturalism, Integration and Contact in Malta. The second study (Re.Cri.Re) investigated social representations concerning the integration of Arabs amongst the Maltese. The study identified different argumentation structures that support or oppose integration.

The findings of these studies will be discussed by a multidisciplinary panel of speakers and will consider diverse implications for Maltese society.
