White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue -18 February 2011

The “White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue” presented here, emphatically argues in the name of the governments of the 47 member states of the Council of Europe that our common future depends on our ability to safeguard and develop human rights, as enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, democracy and the rule of law and to promote mutual understanding. It reasons that the intercultural approach offers a forward-looking model for managing cultural diversity. It proposes a conception based on individual human dignity (embracing our common humanity and common destiny). If there is a European identity to be realised, it will be based on shared fundamental values, respect for common heritage and cultural diversity as well as respect for the equal dignity of every individual.

Researching Conflict in Africa Insights and Experiences -25 February 2011

Africa has the uncanny reputation of being the world’s leading theatre of conflict, war, poverty, disease, and instability. Therefore it is not surprising that scholars of ethnicity and conflict management regard it as a major laboratory for experimentation and theory building. Notwithstanding the exaggerations and oversimplifications that sometimes attend the claims and findings, including the tendency to lump all states in the continent together as suffering from the tribalism disease, Africa generally has not disappointed and, in a manner of speaking, has lived up to its billing. This is certainly true of the turbulent post-Cold War period in which Africa has experienced persistent violent and seemingly intractable conflicts.

Diversity & Citizenship -4 March 2011

Citizenship education has come a long way and we saw examples of outstanding practice. Capturing and replicating that expertise in all schools is a challenge. Many teachers are unsure of the standards expected in Citizenship. This is not surprising, given that it is such a young statutory subject and that many teachers have no specific Citizenship training. There is huge variation in the amount and quality of citizenship provision in schools, partly attributed to the flexible or ‘light touch’ approach, which schools interpret widely. This ‘light touch’ also presents significant difficulties for Ofsted inspections, which show that almost all schools claim they provide some of their Citizenship across the curriculum; yet most of these schools do not prioritise citizenship objectives
