Intercultural Education and Religious Plurality

‘International Education and Religious Plurality’ consists of research based discussions aimed at helping educators and policy makers to bring the dimension of religious diversity to intercultural education in Europe.


The report is written by members of Warwick Religions and Education Research Unit and edited by Robert Jackson and Ursula McKenna as a contribution to the Oslo Coalition’s Project on Teaching for Tolerance and Freedom of Religion or Belief. ‘Teaching for Tolerance and Freedom of Religion or Belief’ (now terminated) is an Oslo Coalition project which seeks to develop a global interdisciplinary network in order to contribute to the development and dissemination of material for education, and to evaluate different educational models.
