Democratic governance of cultural diversity is one of the more important worries of the majority of European states. A few years ago, this concern existed mainly in central and northern Europe; today, however, it has become a matter of general interest for the whole continent. This is shown through two relevant facts: the European Union declared…

Toh, Glenn – Policy Futures in Education, 2015
Japan is known to be a country that manicures its socio-cultural borders. In this article I will examine discourses regarding openness, closedness and cultural diversity in relation to policies and practices that draw heavily on mythologies of English language as an inroad to greater openness and diversity.

Waghid, Yusef; Davids, Nuraan – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
Muslim education is not incommensurate with multiculturalism and, hence, does not pose a threat to multiculturalism at all.

Instead, the authors argue that Muslim…

Bajrektarevic, Anis – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
There is a claim currently circulating the European Union (EU), both cynical and misleading: "multiculturalism is dead in Europe".
