Thinking Diversity, Building Cohesion

A Transnational Dialogue on Education

Edited by: Mokubung Nkomo, Saloshna Vandeyar

How can education both acknowledge cultural diversity and promote social cohesion that is so necessary in contemporary, pluralistic, and democratic societies? How can reconciliation and social cohesion be achieved? The injunction of our times, therefore, is the construction of a consciousness and social cohesion project informed by social justice and human rights. That is the collective quest of the various chapters in this book, with a research focus on South Africa, as well as comparative research on India, the Netherlands, Canada, and the US.
