Intercultural Education

Intercultural education is a dynamic understanding of identity which encourages different people to come together and learn from one another.

Intercultural education aims to unravel stereotypes, or one group’s shared beliefs about another group, and prejudices, or assumptions about individuals or groups which one does not really know. Intercultural education challenges negative views about others.

By unmasking these attitudes, it is possible to understand the psychological mechanisms which reduce everything to easy categories, promote the need to feel part of a homogenous group, and make differences stick out more than similarities. Immigration is one familiar phenomenon in which it is possible to witness cultures mixing and these psychological mechanisms at play.

When society turns strangers into enemies, stereotypes and prejudices are at work in the extreme.
