The Predicament of Intercultural Dialogue

in Cultural Sociology, Vol. 6, Issue 1, pp. 27-44

This article examines the flexibility of the concept of intercultural dialogue with regard to the challenges posed by an increasing multicultural European Union. A European culture has been born out of the 1989 collapse of the Cold war and globalisation which has made the EU vulnerable. The author argues that the concepts of culture, identity and difference are essential in framing intercultural dialogue in the post Cold war globalised context.

Identifying with Europe: Reflections on a Historical and Cultural Canon for Europe

This book gathers authors from all over Europe to reflect on European identity and European cultural heritage. They examine the European cultural commonality from World War II onwards, especially on the time period after 1992. This period of time marked a shift in perception on Europe which was seen as a cultural commonality and words like cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue appeared. The authors argue that artistic and cultural cooperation should be strenghtened and they explore what holds Europe together in a cultural sense.

Multiculturalism and The Politics of Recognition

This essay examines the question of protection of specific cultural groups and their political recognition by societies within the larger debate of multiculturalism. The author gives a historical account to the question which serves as a point of departure for other thinkers who relate political recognition to multicultural education feminism and cultural separatism.

Aspects of European cultural diversity

This book concentrates on aspects of European cultural diversity. The essays included deal with language, education, the mass media and everyday culture. The issues under discussion are those that strongly influence the way in which we define our common everyday identity. They are also issues which determine our access to opportunities of different kinds. The book is designed to enable readers to identify those factors which make them and their own environment unique and to place themselves within the context of everyday Europe.
