Interkulturelle Erziehung geht nicht nur von einem Kulturbegriff aus und meint nicht nur die geistige Kultur einer Gesellschaft, sondern auch die Alltagskultur, also den tagtäglichen Umgang der Menschen miteinander. Dabei orientiert sie sich an den universellen Menschenrechten, versucht die Gleichheit aller Menschen und Kulturen anzuerkennen. Der Terminus entwickelte sich aus der Ausländerpädagogik. Einsicht und Erfahrung zeigten, dass ehrenamtliche Bemühungen in ‘Hausaufgabenhilfen’ keine angemessene Hilfe zur Förderung und Integration ausländischer Kinder darstellte und führte zu Veränderungen in diesem Bereich. Zum einen kam es zu einer Erweiterung des Arbeitsfeldes sowohl im Kindergartensektor als auch im Umgang mit ausländischen Erwachsenen. Zum anderen kam man zu der Erkenntnis, dass Ausländerpädagogik keine Sonderpädagogik für Ausländer sein könne. Vielmehr müsse man sich auch an die ‘Inländer’, also die Deutschen wenden, da viele Aufgaben nur im dialogischen Miteinander zu bewältigen wären. Da der Terminus ‘Ausländerpädagogik’ diese Inhalte nur ungenügend und missverständlich widerspiegelt, werden heute zunehmend die synonymen Begriffe ‘interkulturelle Erziehung’ und ‘interkulturelle Pädagogik’ verwendet.

How can I apply learning and social justice theory to become a better facilitator? Should I prepare differently for workshops around specific identities? How do I effectively respond when things aren’t going as planned? This book is intended for the increasing number of faculty and student affairs administrators – at whatever their level of experience -- who are being are asked to become social justice educators to prepare students to live successfully within, and contribute to, an equitable multicultural society. It will enable facilitators to create programs that go beyond superficial discussion of the issues to fundamentally address the structural and cultural causes of inequity, and provide students with the knowledge and skills to work for a more just society. Beyond theory, design, techniques and advice on practice, the book concludes with a section on supporting student social action. The authors illuminate the art and complexity of facilitation, describe multiple approaches, and discuss the necessary and ongoing reflection process. What sets this book apart is how the authors illustrate these practices through personal narratives of challenges encountered, and by admitting to their struggles and mistakes. They emphasize the need to prepare by taking into account such considerations as the developmental readiness of the participants, and the particular issues and historical context of the campus, before designing and facilitating a social justice training or selecting specific exercises. They pay particular attention to the struggle to teach the goals of social justice education in a language that can be embraced by the general public, and to connect its structural and contextual analyses to real issues inside and outside the classroom. The book is informed by the recognition that “the magic is almost never in the exercise or the handout but, instead, is in the facilitation”; and by the authors’ commitment to help educators identify and analyze dehumanizing processes on their campuses and in society at large, reflect on their own socialization, and engage in proactive strategies to dismantle oppression.
