Handbook on Tolerance and Cultural Diversity

Posted on Friday 16th March 2012

HANDBOOK115Geared toward teacher-trainers, the Handbook on Tolerance and Cultural Diversity in Europe is intended primarily for use in programmes that prepare teachers to serve in high schools in Europe.

The main purpose of this Handbook is to clarify terms commonly used to talk about diversity such as nationality, national identity or citizenship but also concepts such as integration, multiculturalism and intercultural dialogue. Secondly, the Handbook introduces the concepts and phenomena underpinning fear of diversity. Finally, the Handbook proposes answers to the challenges of ethnic and religious diversity in everyday life. Taken as a whole, this Handbook seeks both to clarify important terms associated with its subject matter and to clearly articulate the principles that should guide democratic life in European societies.
