Summary and objectives:

Migration Policy Institute’s report “Multiculturalism: Success, Failure and the Future” (Feb. 2012) draws upon Multiculturalism Policy Index: “[…] multiculturalism in the West emerged as a vehicle for replacing old forms of ethnic and racial hierarchy with new relations of democratic citizenship, and there is some significant, if not yet conclusive, evidence that it is making progress toward the goal”.

Preliminary analysis made by us showed that in Europe exist many ethnicities, each country hosting national and immigrant minorities. This situation exists in project countries - RO, CY, ES, IE, IT, PT, TR, UK. The 2011-2012 censuses in these countries reported various religions: Muslims, Roman Catholics, Protestants, Hebrew, Hindu, Presbyterian, Anglican, Methodist, Reformed, Pentecostal, Orthodox, Sunni, Alevi or Sufi.

The social tensions/anti-social deeds generated by multiple factors (i.e. different religious background, cultural traditions, affiliation to ethnicities/social clusters, etc.) can be defused and prevented through non-formal/informal education for tolerance, acceptance, opening, understanding, reciprocal knowledge. The project aims at training AE educators to promote tolerance and understanding of “the other” in multilateral communities. The target groups are AE educators & Adult Learners from cultural conglomerates.

Thus, the envisaged objectives are:

  • To improve AE educators’ competences for handling multi-ethnic groups
  • To promote peaceful coexistence in a multicultural world through quality non-/informal learning on tolerance & understanding of “The Others”.
