Interculturality and Intercultural Education in Portugal: Recent Developments
Pratas, Maria Helena
Intercultural Education, v21 n4 p317-327 Aug 2010
The Portuguese approach to cultural diversity anchors on the principle of Interculturality; within the framework of mutual respect, it embraces the value and richness of diversity and dialogue. This intercultural approach is embedded in the paradigm of an equal value of all cultures and cultural miscegenation, moving thus far beyond a multicultural coexistence framework. This intercultural approach supposes more than simply accepting the "other"; it implies "hosting" the "other" within us and accepts being transformed within that encounter. This paper analyses various policies and measures regarding intercultural education in Portugal, where progress has been made but where there is still a journey to be made.
