Based on the Multicultural Library Manifesto published by IFLA and UNESCO we want to support librarians in addressing “their community’s unique cultural and linguistic needs through dedicated services and strategies” (Multicultural Library Manifesto, IFLA/UNESCO, 2012, p.2). Thus, in addition to a general theoretical understanding of the basic concepts, principles, hand-on activities and methods will be also provided.
This part of our e-tutorial provides a short introduction into the concept and practice of citizenship education. You will learn about which kind of competences citizenship education seeks to convey, and why it is particular important in the context of the social inclusion of people with a migrant background.
