The democratic management of cultural diversity is the greatest political challenge for present-day European societies. The plural character of our societies forces us to rethink the basic political concepts, starting off from a new idea of inclusive and plural d¬emocracy. The application of human rights must be reconsidered in the light of presentday reality so that democratic states are able to guarantee the benefi t of these rights to all persons through their identity and not in spite of it, thus creating political spaces that are open to a multi-identity coexistence.

This book discusses the relationship between human rights and education. Education as a human right and education for human rights are currently the topics of considerable debate worldwide. In addition to their traditional role of transmitting knowledge and values, education systems are being pressed to respond to a new range of aspirations and to a wide variety of economic, political, social and cultural developments whose roots lie outside the education system. Human rights education is much wider than just teaching about human rights; it should lead to an understanding of, and sympathy for, the concepts of democracy, justice, equality, freedom, solidarity, peace, dignity, rights and responsibilities. Young people are guaranteed their right to education, and education systems should equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes they will need if they are to take an active part in the operation of democratic institutions.
