The WCCES and Intercultural Dialogue

In: International Review of Education. Vol.54, No: 3-4, July, 2008.

The World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES) has been strongly concerned with intercultural dialogue since the Council was created in 1970. Indeed advancement of education “for international understanding in the interests of peace, intercultural cooperation, mutual respect among peoples and observance of human rights” is one of the goals built into the WCCES Statutes. This paper begins with a focus on the origins and goals of the WCCES, noting in particular links with the mission of UNESCO.

Developing Intercultural Competence as Part of Professional Qualification: A Training Experiment

Intercultural Communication at work – The 10th NIC Symposium on Intercultural Communication, 20-22 November 2003

"The internationalisation and globalisation of working life sets specific requirements on professional education including professionally integrated foreign language education, the overall goal of which should be intercultural competence.  The paper discusses a training experiment in intercultural communication, especially the effectiveness of training in developing the various components of intercultural competence.

This Green Paper addresses an important challenge facing education systems today, a challenge which, while not new, has in recent years intensified and become more widespread – the presence in schools of large numbers of children from a migrant background who are in a weak socio-economic position.
