Video: Oliver Schmidtke on diversity in Canada and teachings for Germany

"Learning from the world" is the motto of the Reinhard Mohn Prize. We spoke to Professor Oliver Schmidtke of the University of Victoria about what Germany can learn from Canada in dealing with cultural diversity.

What are the factors contributing to success in living diversity? What challenges does diversity pose for society, and how can we meet these challenges?

Our Living Diversity - Shaping Society project takes a close look at the reality of diversity in today's German society and asks how we can develop effective approaches to living together in cultural diversity that target social inclusion and allow everyone the opportunity to participate in all aspects of society.

The interview with Oliver Schmidtke was held during our expert workshop in Berlin in preparation for the launch of the Reinhard Mohn Prize 2018 research. Videos of further interviews with experts will be posted here soon.
