Abstract: As EU societies become increasingly multicultural, multiethnic, and multireligious, the recognition of otherness has become a main priority in the objectives for education and training programs in the EU (European Commission 2006a). Over the years, the European Union has encouraged intercultural dialogue to raise the awareness of all those living inside and outside of the EU through various programs and initiatives (European Commission 2008a). Consequently, 2008 has been designated as the “European Year of Intercultural Dialogue” by the European Parliament and Member States of the European Union. The initiative aims at raising awareness and a deeper understanding of the identity of European citizens and of those individuals and groups belonging to different cultures, ethnicities, and religions. The proposed projects in each EU country will be implemented in schools and various cultural, athletic, and civil society organizations throughout the Union.
