Two Main subjects will be discussed:


1/ Issues Related to Education Policies


Understanding the challenge involved in reformulating the democratic project in societies that set objectives in terms of acknowledgement of (linguistic, cultural, religious, ethnic as well as gender) differences.

Socialisation and integration have always been displayed as primary objectives of education. Did these terms have the same meaning at the time of Jules Ferry and today?

What is the place given to minorities in current education systems?

What should be the benchmarks for an equal right - and open to diversity citizenship: an overall citizenship? Active citizenship? Inclusive citizenship? What are the perspectives in terms of local and participatory democracy?

A Europe of education beyond its borders: reflections on the different socialisation and integration policy levels: local, and even hyper local, Nation-state, European, but also Mediterranean, French-speaking, etc.


2/ Issues Related to Practices


The perspective of “inclusive societies”: a new role distribution between formal and informal education and between institutions – family, school, city, communities, churches, work and associations.

Educational approaches to cultural diversity: which tools, which mechanisms? Which teachers’ training?

Practices and experiences in cultural flows and contacts.

What is intercultural teaching?
