Authors: Eugenia P. Bitsani (Associate Professor, Human Recources Management with Emphasis in Cultural –Social Services, the Department Business and Organizations Administration at T.E.I. of Peloponnese, Kalamata, Greece) 
Book Description:
This book negotiates the complex relationship between the identity of modern multicultural city and its development as well as its social cohesion, on the horizon of globalization and crisis.

Specifically, it expounds on an interdisciplinary approach regarding the actual phenomenon of multiculturalism in contemporary cities. The relationships created within this context between the different cultural groups and their impact on the city itself are described. It relates the concepts of identity and diversity and their effects on the socioeconomic development of the city. In addition, it also relates to social cohesion existing in urban areas, plus the dynamics of relationships developed within a complex context.

All within the context of political science, sociology and management science, while combining the scientific theory of cultural landscape, cultural theory, systemic analysis and sustainable development in an original theory is created, the “intercultural identity of the city”. What is more, while intercultural identity is the keystone of this hypothesis, it proposes the creation of a specific model planning of sustainable development and social cohesion in the modern and post-modern cities of the future.

This is ongoing research which aims to deepen the understanding and interconnection between networks and cities’ identities, but also strives to develop the methodology acquired from the feedback and information that will emerge from the implementation of this model in real life.

In brief, this book, introduces the term human intercultural city for the first time. It expounds on an original scientific theory, coining the term "intercultural city identity" and “Human Intercultural Cities (H.I.C.)”. This is what makes it a pioneer monograph as well as a necessary notion for the survival of modern cities so much for now as for the future. The negative impact of globalization and the subsequent economic crisis in metropolitan centers will be inevitable. Furthermore, this monograph may be used as a handy tool for academics, researchers, educators, policymakers, marketers and students as well as for the local communities of various cities in order to plan effectively and implement techniques that will lead humanity to a real exit from the crisis, hence helping to build a humanistic future for their cities.
