This means that the students need to not only acquire linguistic structures, but also cultural communicative competence, identities, values and ideologies – all of which constitute and are mediated in and through discursive practices ( Duff 2012 ; Duff & Talmy 2011 ).

railway station. According to the Łódź Local Redevelopment Plan for 2007–2013 this part of the city centre (blocks A to G) belongs to the so called city service centre and remains within the centre of the core metropolitan area, covered by the redevelopment plan co-financed from the EU structural funds in the period 2014–2020. All of the core metropolitan zone has been divided into 20 projects for 55 urban blocks. The number of each area (project) gives information about the sequence of stages in the redevelopment process.

The debate about identity and integration in the EU is illumined by looking at the European discourse on intercultural dialogue (ICD) as the principal contemporary vehicle for fostering integration by overcoming divisions, marginalisation and misunderstandings (Council of Europe, 1997; 2005a ; 2007; 2008; 2015 ; European Commission, 2005 ; 2006; 2007; 2008; De Kock, 2010 ; Wilk-Wos, 2010 ).

The Moslems, mainly ignored in the political debates of the 1990s, have been exposed to a steadily growing anti-Islam discourse after 2001, which stresses that they are strangers dangerous for the allegedly “ethnically homogeneous” Czech society ( Topinka 2015 , 31–34). Public opinion demonstrates a constantly high level of distance of the Czechs in regard to the Moslems ( Topinka 2016a

institutionalization of principles of merit. A general lack of single-party dominance of the political system, even at the local level, meant that a single-party hold on the civil service seldom occurred. Gerrit S. A. Dijkstra, Frits M. van der Meer, »The civil service system of the Netherlands«, in: Frits M. van der Meer (Ed.), Civil service systems in Western Europe, Cheltenham, Aldershot 2011, p. 157–191.
