Globalisation and Comparative Education

“BookZajda, J., & Rust, V. D. (2021). Globalisation and comparative education: Changing paradigms. Springer Nature.

…policy statements on intercultural dialogue of the UNESCO, and the Council of Europe, share a policy consensus that emerging discourses dealing with intercultural dialogue refer to values education, based on peace, the respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law. The overarching goal is promoting ‘harmonious interaction among people and groups with plural, varied and dynamic cultural identities’ as well as their willingness to live together in peace. (p. 178)

While this is an interesting book overall, the chapter most likely to be of greatest interest to CID followers is Chapter 11: Globalisation and Cultural Identity: The Role of Intercultural Dialogue (pp. 177-186) which is where the quote above appears. They conclude that “there is a need to re-assert the relevance of intercultural dialogue in an increasingly interdependent world” (p. 184).
