HOW FAR CAN RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CONTRIBUTE TO MULTICULTURAL/INTERCULTURAL EDUCATION?

Robert Jackson

Abstract


In this article the emergence in Britain (late 1960s) of a secular religious education
(RE), utilising material from the religions of the world and referring to its role in
multicultural education in the 1970s will be given. Developments in the history of
the relationship between multicultural and antiracist education (till early 1990s),
when new critical approaches to multicultural education appeared, will be
discussed. Policy discussions internationally are now recognising the importance of
the religious dimension to intercultural education. New interpretive and dialogical
pedagogies of religious education share similar analytic stances towards culture
and religion and similar critical and reflexive methodologies to recent approaches
to multicultural/intercultural education. Thus, religious education employing these
pedagogies can make a direct contribution to an intercultural education working to
promote social cohesion.
