Book Description

This volume represents the result of cooperation between representatives of different academic disciplines, particularly researchers dealing with multiculturalism, cross-cultural education, civil education, penitentiary pedagogy in the context of global and European cultural and demographic transformations, and ethnopedagogues, sociologists and historians. The contributors here are united by a common interest in cross-border interpretations of cultural differences within pedagogical and social discourse. As such, the book presents in-depth and versatile reflections on the current ways of conceptualising multiculturalism as expressed across Europe. Each chapter includes a conclusion indicating the areas in which the respective study will have a particular impact. The book will be of interest to experts, practitioners and teachers dealing with multicultural issues; penitentiary tutors and authorities working with foreign prisoners; theoreticians of contemporary pedagogical discourse involving cultural, sociological and political issues; and the general reader attentive to processes of European integration and their related aspects, including cultural diversity, globalization, and religious radicalization.
