You can complete this survey in about 10-15 minutes.  It is part of a Europe-wide research study by Professor V. Dhupa.  She holds two Visiting Professorships, Nottingham Trent University (School of Art and Design) and the University of the West of Scotland (School of Culture, Media and Society).  The survey is supported by a number of European-wide organisations, including the European Cultural Parliament, Cumulus, The European Cultural Foundation, The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in London, Intercult and River//Cities.

The purpose of the survey is to obtain perceptions about ourselves and diversity in an increasingly interconnected world.  These will inform an opinion piece which will be completed in June 2016 and shared widely within Europe and where all the supporting organisations will be credited.

Please answer these questions in order and do not go back and change or adjust the answers.  If you are unable to give an answer please move directly to the next question.

None of the answers are attributable.  The survey is open until 3rd June 2016 so please pass the link to your friends and professional contacts. 

Thank you in advance for completing the questions.
