Objective

 

Cultural pluralism is increasingly central to contemporary democratic theory and practice. The need to accommodate diverse cultural groups has become synonymous with communities’ prospects for viability and survivability in an age fraught with massive waves of immigration and worldwide plights of refugees and exiles. 
The book purports to investigate the theoretical and practical principles of interreligious and interfaith initiatives in an age of sociopolitical tumult. Such initiatives are becoming increasingly associated with a liberal theory of modernity and internationalism that presupposes freedom, democracy, human rights and tolerance. However, although it is rapidly becoming the dominant paradigm for 'cultural policy' and the educational basis for the development of intercultural understanding, the knowledge about and familiarity with intercultural/interfaith dialogue is still scant and disjointed. In light of the fact that governments, civil societies, educators and international mediators have placed their hope in intercultural education as the way to avoid the worst excesses of globalization, such as exclusion and marginalization, xenophobia and racism, this edited book has a great potential and timely value of highlighting some of the major afflictions in the world today, while offering some relevant remedies for them
