Tolerance Matters

International Educational Approaches

Edited by Seamus Dunn, K. Peter Fritzsche, and Valerie Morgan

This book identifies fundamental issues in the field of education for democracy, human rights, and tolerance. Ten case studies examine educational responses in a wide range of cultural, social, and economic contexts. Set against a comparative analytical framework, the case studies explore the complexities, challenges, and opportunities inherent in attempting to use education as a mechanism for fostering understanding and tolerance. With contributions from Brazil, Chile, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, the Philippines, Poland, South Africa, and the United States, this unique collection offers a cross- and intercultural approach to the issue of education for democracy.
