Proceedings of a meeting on immigrant culture are summarized in this report, which aims to outline the main questions asked and answered at this final activity of a 5-year project carried out by the Council for Cultural Cooperation. The introduction discusses the goals of the meeting which were to define the culture of migrants, especially of young people of immigrant origin, and to call on institutions to explain their cultural policies and programs for the benefit of migrants and ethnic minorities. A summary of Antonio Perotti's keynote speech lists new trends in European migration and notes problems such as youth unemployment, antisocial behavior, and racist attitudes towards young people. Part I of the report deals with ways in which migrants give expression to and develop their culture. Strategies for cross cultural communication are cited, including a German coffee house-meeting house scheme for women of foreign extraction, the use of drama, and literary and music competitions to encourage cultural awareness. Part II examines recent political and institutional responses to the challenge of the cultural development of migrants. Public policies in different European countries are summarized. Appendices contain the meeting agenda, a directory of participants, and a directory of cultural programs mentioned in the report. (JHZ)
