Intercultural competence is still not automatically part of teacher education. It is not only a political issue; it is also a matter of the curriculum characteristics of institutes for teacher education. This article discusses a project, launched by the Dutch Ministry of Education, on the operationalization of intercultural education in preservice teacher education in The Netherlands. The way in which intercultural education is presented to students appears to be superficial and lacking a critical perspective. This is partly due to the way in which institutes deal with the current trend towards self-regulated learning in higher education and to the absence of close ties with intercultural practices in schools.
