Municipal committee on intercultural living-together (CCVEI)

The law of 23 August 2023 on intercultural living-together provides for the creation in every municipality of an “advisory committee whose remit includes the intercultural living-together of all people living and working in the municipality”.

This committee has the mission :

  1. to identify priorities and obstacles encountered in the field of intercultural living-together at municipal level ;
  2. to assist the local municipality in the development and implementation of measures and activities to promote intercultural living together ;
  3. to promote access to information, civic participation and community life ;
  4. to encourage dialogue, intercultural exchange and mutual understanding between all residents of the municipality ;
  5. to ensure respect for the values of intercultural living-together and, in particular, to raise awareness and implement measures to fight racism and all forms of discrimination ;
  6. to elect municipal representatives to the Higher Council for Intercultural Living-Together.

The municipal committees on intercultural living-together are key partners in intercultural living-together at a local level. They play an important bridging role between non-Luxembourgers and Luxembourgers, non-Luxembourgers and local politicians, and politicians at local and national level.

If you would like to get in touch with your local committee on intercultural living-together, please contact the administration of your municipality.

Resources

In 2020, the Department of integration launched a project to analyse the operation and needs of municipal advisory committees on integration. The study was carried out in two stages:

  • An online survey inviting all members of local advisory committees on integration (CCCI) to take part and share their opinions.
  • Qualitative interviews with members of around thirty CCCIs, selected on the basis of geographical representativeness, were carried out with an external expert.
