Refugees, Interculturalism and Education (Paperback)
Refugees, Interculturalism and Education focuses on the sensitive issue of forced migration and education from an intercultural perspective. The volume comprises diverse projects and classroom experiences in different countries, involving today's ever-increasing population of human beings who, for different reasons, are compelled to abandon their homelands and seek better living conditions in strange places where they are not normally welcome. Such a reality poses great challenges to the nations and educational systems that receive these groups and brings intercultural education to the centre of the discussion. The contributors to this book call attention to the importance of providing these refugee populations with a humanistic, stimulating and transformative educational setting in order to let them know that their lives are important and that their histories matter.
The chapters in this book were originally published in Intercultural Education.
