Diversity, intercultural dialogue and the development of positive, open identities are core values of multicultural societies. In a broad sense, culture is a system of values and attitudes that enables us to understand and make sense of the relationship between ourselves and the world around us.
Intercultural learning is a process that aims to develop and increase mutual understanding and acceptance between learners from different cultural backgrounds and to improve the academic performance of minority and/or migrant learners from different cultural backgrounds. Intercultural learning aims to promote cooperation between different social groups and to develop individuals’ attitudes and frames of reference in a direction that favours fairness and negotiated conflict resolution.
Within the framework of the TEACH project, we conducted a research with the main aim of clarifying the concept and content of intercultural education, and to examine the possibilities offered by the existing Croatian and Hungarian curricula and textbooks for teachers and external experts to implement intercultural education.
