Abstract

In the context of the current migration crisis and its sociopolitical impacts on the public and multicultural societies among European countries, the activation and management of intercultural communities are urgently needed. Thus, a literature review of the intercultural space for social integration becomes essential. To analyze the current situations and trends on this subject, this paper aims to systematize the existing information on intercultural spaces and relevant design strategies, providing a comprehensive overview of the current issues and problem-solving suggestions related to social coexistence by using PRISMA methodology. Data are drawn from 42 studies, and outcomes for multiple dimensions of intercultural spaces are summarized. The results highlight elements referring to spatial, functional, and characteristics dimensions for better facilitating intercultural spaces. This study contributes to the literature on intercultural spaces by providing a systematization of the literature developed to date and proposing future references to guide policymaking.
