Education: A Challenge for Intercultural Cities

Mariagrazia Santagati, Cristina Zanzottera

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


Based on the definition of interculturalism given by Gimenez (right to equality, right to difference, positive interaction), the chapter reconstructs the development and implementation of the intercultural model in the field of education, presenting a reasoned and analytical catalogue of interesting practices, implemented in European and Italian cities, illustrating the dimensions identified. How are equal educational opportunities guaranteed for foreign pupils in European cities? To what extent and in what way is the cultural diversity of which they are part of recognised and accepted within the education system? Is a positive exchange between culturally different subjects pursued and realised in the curricula and in the relationships that develop in the educational institutions? With the aim of answering these questions, the text looks at intercultural policies in local realities based on official documents, primary and secondary data, studies and research reviews, and project databases at European and Italian level.
