Their diversity of cultural identities

Rami, Justin, Schuh, Maria and Le Roy, Eveline (2007) Their diversity of cultural identities. UNSPECIFIED. UNSPECIFIED.


European Universities are enrolling increasing numbers of students, who are travelling to Europe for study in Higher Education Institutions. This booklet adds to the debate on how institutions can support students from different cultural backgrounds in their diversity of cultural identities in an equitable and balanced manner. This phenomenon raises interesting questions such as:• How do the changing definitions of Citizenship within the EU and the diversity of cultural identities found in international students affect the identities in academic life and the position of ‘world’ students?• What special provisions need to be made to accommodate these students?This booklet seeks to provide some answers, based on the experience of three diverse Higher Education Institutions in Europe –Dublin City University, Ireland,Katholieke Hogeschool Zuid-West-Vlaanderen, Flanders, Belgium,Pädagogische Akademie des Bundes, Wien, Austria
