Promoting intercultural dialogue has been a priority for most European institutions and recent developments have underlined its importance, bringing a new emphasis on this issue. This paper would like to provide a brief evaluation of recent initiatives in the area of intercultural dialogue, taking into account different fields with direct link to diversity and intercultural dialogue. Intercultural dialogue does not exclusively deal with social and political issues. It also considers the importance of dialogue in the relationship between most of life areas: religion, museums, art, music, sports, literature, languages and many others.

The current article is dedicated to the role of intercultural dialogue by covering some issues related to the importance of direct interaction between representatives of different languages and cultures. Respecting and promoting linguistic diversity lays the ground for all citizens to take an active part in social, economic and cultural life and to shape skills and abilities in intercultural communication. In a wider sense, the aim of intercultural dialogue is to learn and to want to live together peacefully and constructively in a multicultural world and to develop a sense of community and belonging.
