Learning to Live Together: The Contribution of Intercultural Education
Martins, Isabel Ferreira
European Journal of Education, v43 n2 p197-206 Jun 2008
This article reflects the 17 years of experience of the "Entreculturas project" in Portugal, where the "Learning to live together" dimension has played a central role. It questions how intercultural education and training can contribute to promote and model an intercultural citizenship societal project and looks back at the history of the Entreculturas process in two different settings: (1) within the Ministry of Education (1991/2003), aimed at building and developing intercultural education in the educational system; and (2) at present, within the ACIDI--High Commission for Immigration and Intercultural Dialogue--"upgraded" into a broader transversal dimension of immigrants' integration public policy.
