This paper explores divergent meanings of diversity and the interrelations between history, tradition and perception. It discusses how long‐standing cultural diversity in OECD member countries was handled in the past and highlights new challenges for educational systems stemming from increasing diversity due to migration. Different responses to diversity in the form of multicultural and intercultural education and implications for educational policy and practice are explored. The paper concludes with the role and responsibility of educators and policy makers to address these challenges ‐ guaranteeing the educational achievement of all while strengthening intercultural understanding and social justice.
