Chapter Summary

Today, the diversity of European classrooms is enriched by an increasing cultural and religious variety, mainly as a result of immigration from different parts of the world. This development has sharpened the challenges of education. It is therefore widely recognised that not only the social context, but school itself is more culturally diverse than before. In order to achieve a critical distance towards our own assumptions within the REDCo project, it has been suggested to make use of ?conceptual hermeneutics'. This idea is based on the interpretive approach developed by R. Jackson and colleagues at University of Warwick, which is also the theoretical basis of the REDCo project. Dialogue and conflict are not necessarily opposites but rather interrelated. Conflict can be seen as the basis for dialogue in the sense that a situation of conflict calls for dialogue.
