Vernon Press, Jul 3, 2020 - Education - 220 pages

"Intercultural Education: Kosovo Stories of Struggle and Resilience" offers stories that challenge traditional conceptions regarding often unknown or ignored histories. The efforts and fortitude of Kosovo and its people provide a thought-provoking case study to learn from history. Kosovo still suffers from issues of poverty, development, and global recognition. The ongoing story of education in Kosovo comes alive with educators sharing individual perspectives regarding their struggles and resolve as students, teachers and parents. Although the focus is on Kosovo, the hope is that an intercultural awareness arises in place of the traditional international understanding. Celebrating culture, perspective, difference, and similarity is a primary focus of this book, which aspires to encourage readers to build bridges through intercultural education.
This collection will be of interest both to faculty, students, researchers, and scholars in education and cultural studies, and to members of international education organizations.
