Social Justice and Intercultural Education : An Open Ended Dialogue Paperback / softback
Edited by Ghazala Bhatti, Chris Gaine, Francesca Gobbo, Yvonne Leeman
This book encapsulates the richness offered by the discourse of social justice and explores how it is understood in Europe today and its connection to intercultural education as interpreted in different parts of Europe.
The rights and responsibilities of local inhabitants are considered in its light, along with the transmigration of people and ideas.
Drawn from presentations by European researchers and scholars at the EERA conferences in Crete 2004 and Dublin 2005, the issues featured in the book cross the boundaries of anthropology, sociology, human geography and the politics of race.
The theoretically informed and empirically grounded educational research in this collection enhances our understanding of the ways in which educational and socio-cultural issues are explored and untangled within various complex European societies, and highlights the need for ongoing dialogue between different communities and societies.
It provides an introduction to social justice and intercultural education for educational researchers, policy makers, teachers and university students, and will enhance and extend the knowledge and understanding of those already experienced in the field.
