Intercultural Education at the Crossroads

Two members of the Diversity in Education and Development team (Ursula and Sauro) attended the Mobilities, Transitions, Transformations – Intercultural Education at the Crossroads International Conference held 5-9 September at the Eötvös Lorand University in Budapest, Hungary. The conference was a key activity for IAIE (International Association for Intercultural Education), as the biggest of its annual conferences. Ursula and Sauro presented individual papers.

Two keynote speakers, Paul Gorski and Audrey Osler, offered particularly inspiring and fascinating suggestions on how to foster intercultural education and equity in schools. Chaired by James Banks, a special session brought experts from Europe, Latin America, Asia, and the U.S., providing interesting insights into global migration, structural inclusion, and citizenship education across the world. The conference included practical workshops on numerous topics such as cooperative learning (led by Yael Sharan) and ‘talking to racists’ (led by Maja Nenadovic).

We look forward to the next IAIE conference (June 2017) that will be hosted by the Université Catholique de l´Ouest (Catholic University of the West) in Angers, France. For more pictures and the full conference programme, check out the website of the IAIE 2016 or the Facebook webpage of the event. All pictures included in this post (apart from the first one with Sauro, James Banks, and two fellow conference attendees) were taken by the official conference photographer and can be accessed on the IAIE site.
