The purpose of the Diavers initiative is to share and make available the acquired knowledge and experience in interculturalisation, communication and policy development.
Diavers approaches intercultural communication and policy from a human rights perspective in the field of community development and international co-operation.
Diavers applies a method in which the focus is on people's attitude. This attitude is influenced by the meaning people attribute to situations and phenomena. Those meanings influence behaviour.
Diavers makes use of an analytical framework of diversity (Van Asperen 2003), to analyse and improve interpersonal co-operation. The framework is based on an analysis of the intercultural paradox. More information on this can be found in Intercultural Communication & Ideology .
