Since its establishment Baku International Centre of Multiculturalism has been realizing important projects associated with the presentation of Azerbaijani multiculturalism to the world, its advocacy and promotion on the international arena as targeted by President Ilham Aliyev. The International Winter and Summer Schools of Multiculturalism, which have turned into a tradition and organized regularly twice a year, are one of the significant projects of the Centre.

These statements were uttered by the Acting Executive Director of BICM Ravan Hasanov in his interview to the journalists.

The VII International Summer School of Multiculturalism has been dedicated to the 10th Anniversary of Baku Process in accordance with the Instruction of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan and is being held under the title “Baku Process 10 Years: As a Contribution to the Development of Intercultural Dialogue”. “About 40 young people from over 30 countries are participating in this project. Some students from Azerbaijani universities have also joined the project. The Summer School will operate in the districts of Oghuz, Shaki, Gabala and Ismayilli, along with Baku. The participants will meet with the local people, religious communities, and religious figures and familiarize themselves with historical monuments. The youth will consolidate the theoretical knowledge mastered in classrooms through practical knowledge. Broad lectures have also been planned for the project participants, who will be taught by a team of foreign and local scholars. I am sure that by the end of the Summer School the project participants will join the friends of Azerbaijan,” stated R.Hasanov.
