TC0003: Dr Damian Spiteri – The road to intercultural education – Book review.

 

Multicultural education and its processes of intercultural engagement are considered by some as one of the main steps toward “integration” but there are many barriers that students, lecturers and society have to overcome in order to successfully tackle those obstacles (or even have the agenda made acceptable to significant parts of society).

Dr Damian Spiteri from the University of York is about to publish a book called ‘Multiculturalism, Higher Education and Intercultural Communication’.

Dr Spiteri met with Astehmari Batekun and explained the rationale behind his research which is grounded in his work with Black students from Africa who were asylum seekers and the local population of typically White European Maltese students. We had a very insightful reasoning on many critical issues and factors connected to the idea of intercultural multiculturalism.
