Concepts and Materials

“Migration can bring culturally and educationally valuable elements to the school. Being confronted with other viewpoints and perspectives has the potential to be enriching both for students and teachers. Intercultural skills and the capacity to enter into a tolerant and respectful dialogue with people from a different cultural background are competencies that need to be, and can be, built.”
