How to Turn Difficulties into Opportunities: Drawing from Diversity to Promote Social Cohesion
Alexiu, Teodor Mircea; Sorde, Teresa
International Studies in Sociology of Education, v21 n1 p49-62 Mar 2011
Racism in Europe is an ongoing reality that shapes many people's everyday lives. Diversity is often perceived as a barrier to social cohesion or educational success. These discourses are very often translated into measures that tend to assimilate or segregate those with a migrant or minority background. In this article, drawing from the results of the INCLUD-ED project, it is argued that through the implementation of successful actions diversity can be turned into an opportunity to enhance learning and social cohesion.
