The unit, presented over a four week period, involves a research-led case study of cultural diversity in Europe. Based at Monash University’s Prato Centre, students will be introduced to the main overarching theories concerning migration and cultural diversity. The uniqueness of the unit and its relevance to the Prato setting is that students will use these theoretical underpinnings to frame a case study involving observational research to complete 3000 word case study concerning managing cultural diversity in Europe. Students will be encouraged to observe cultural similarities and differences, and particularly the interactions between different cultural groups.
