This article summarizes a discussion via It is known that Lewis Fry Richardson has studied mathematical model for conflict resolution. For instance: My question is: Considering prolonged conflicts between Ukraine-Russia and also between Israel-Palestine, then is it possible to apply that Richardson's model to help solving those conflicts? Perhaps that model will be useful for policy makers and peaceful efforts.

Th e initiative is achieving a considerable success, given its particular combination of cultural aspects, development of the principles of European “Unity” and “Identity”, the efficient business modelling, a strong use of local resources and capabilities, the acute “short-clustering” capabilities through areas heretofore un- correlated, the extension of a consistent Network of networks, and the use of disruptive technological innovation. The Steering Committee is com- p!osed of members of ICOMOS (prof. M. Ioannides, membership number CYP 6853).

“Differences and Commonalities". the Definitive Identity of a Pan-European Cultural Touristic Project. Setting-up the Itineraries

Authors: José Portugal, Elisa Perez Babo, Giuseppe Laquidara, Marika Mazzi Boém, Margaret Colombani, Federica Marano
Comments: 21 Pages.

Our objective is to create a trans-national tourism route, linking together the different — but also — common features of UNESCO WH sites, enhancing distinctions and commonalities under the paradigm of “the beauty of multiplicity”. It is in the history and nature of Europe itself to be considered as a melting pot, and therefore a space for dialogue. We are pretty well aware of the resulting catastrophes in Europe, when people wanted to assert and enforce the opposite. European territories are based on shared cultures and common stories, but what it is becoming increasingly valuable to share is the pervasive search for intercultural relations, and to build networks based on affinities of various kinds. The Intercultural Dialogue is an ongoing challenge for all European citizens, and starts with the recognition that our well-being and wealth come from our willingness to cultural exchanges.

“Differences and Commonalities" — Intrinsic Values of the Euheritage Tour Cultural Route

Authors: José Portugal, Elisa Perez Babo, Giuseppe Laquidara, Marika Mazzi Boém, Margaret Colombani, Federica Marano
Comments: 8 Pages.

An innovative idea, to be plugged in the general framework of the EUheritage Tour cultural route, could be the introduction of mechanisms for self education according to gamification criteria. Each stops along the itinerary could be considered as a mile- stone in an in-progress self-education course, linked to topics such as history, archaeology, heritage management, heritage tourism and providing a set of certification criteria.

The EUHeritage TOUR — Network for European Cultural Heritage Tourism — Concept Presentation

Authors: Giuseppe Laquidara, Marika Mazzi Boém, Margaret Colombani, Isabel Lopez Briones, Federica Marano
Comments: 35 Pages.

The overall objective of this project is to increase the competitiveness of European tourism by creating an innovative transnational tourism product that capitalises the shared value of European UNESCO cultural heritage sites and complements national, regional and local policies. UNESCO cultural world heritage sites provide an important narrative for historical development in Europe and they can serve as foundations for a contemporary European identity. At the same time domestic and international visits to the sites have grown rapidly over the past years representing both a challenge and opportunity. Considering that the tourism sector involves both public and private stakeholders, the European Commission’s 2010 Communication on tourism (COM (2010)352 final), its rolling implementation plan and the Agenda for a sustainable and competitive European tourism (COM (2007)621 final) underline that national, regional, local public authorities as well as public and private tourism stakeholders have to be involved in order to create a new successful framework for action. In order to be able to maintain Europe’s leadership in the world tourism, EUheritageTOUR will contribute to developing a new innovative tourism product that can compete in times of the economic crisis.
