Series Description

This series offers insightful analysis of various concepts, approaches and practices associated with the inter-thematic field of multicultural and intercultural education, bringing together contributions from various educational disciplines. The books published under this series highlight why multicultural and intercultural education is currently the most important educational perspective, what this term means in theory and practice, its contents and methodology, and how it can be adapted to meet the needs of a globalised world and the local needs of plural societies.

The main axes of the series are: terminology and conceptual issues; critical analysis and implementation of multicultural and intercultural education; inter-thematic approaches from various disciplines to multicultural and intercultural education; the issues concerned with immigrant students, Roma students and indigenous minority; language policy and TESOL; curriculum and classroom organisation; methodologies and strategies for multicultural and intercultural education within school settings and organisations; Teachers’ education and training in multicultural and intercultural education; diversity and pluralism in a multicultural democratic framework; human rights and anti-racist education approaches for social and political action; and dilemmas and challenges in education and social policy practices. This series provides educational professionals and students with knowledge and information that will assist them in understanding and approaching multicultural and intercultural education.

We particularly welcome proposals that present an in-depth understanding of the intercultural and multicultural education fields. For further information and guidelines on proposals, and to request a proposal form, please contact Author Liaison Theo Moxham at and series editor Nektaria Palaiologou at
