The Possibilities of Intercultural Education in European Society
This paper presents an analysis of theoretical ideas and models that could serve as the basis of intercultural education in the current European society. Initially, it presents the importance of interculturalism for education that is based on research data from Slovenia. Interculturalism is one of the most important educational initiatives in addressing the problem of inequality in education. Further in the text, in the absence of a theoretical basis of intercultural education, four possible theoretical models are analysed and described: the global ethic model based on Hans Küng project of Global Ethic; distance to the Other model based on Slavoj Žižek’s research on violence; constitutional loyalty model based on the theory of Jürgen Habermas; and recognition model based on the theory of recognition.
