Multiculturalism

  1. 1. Multiculturalism Agrupamento Vertical de Escolas de Castelo de Paiva 2010/2011
  2. 2. Multiculturalism <ul><li>It is the acceptance or promotion of multiple ethnic cultures in a specific place. </li></ul><ul><li>Liberal multiculturalism  assumes the existence of pre-existing cultures, which relate to, and interact with, each other, but doesn’t examine the hierarchies of power based in these interactions. </li></ul><ul><li>Critical multiculturalism  is concerned with the institutions and practices forming the whole society. It sees inequalities of power and racism, recognizing the rights. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Around the World <ul><li>It is a more and more common phenomenon and it exists in all the countries. </li></ul><ul><li>The most multicultural countries are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the USA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Canada </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the UK </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Australia </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Theoretically, it is accepted in most of the countries; however, this doesn’t happen in practice. </li></ul>
  4. 4. In Europe <ul><li>Multiculturalism also exists in the European countries; however, in some of them this is not well accepted, such as: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>in France </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in Germany </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The European Union is concerned with this subject and is trying to solve this problem, by making laws and promoting the tolerance; </li></ul><ul><li>This project, for example, aims at the communication among different cultures which is a way to fight against the ethnic discrimination. </li></ul>
  5. 5. In Portugal <ul><li>There is a huge contrast between the old generation and the youngest one. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Old people don’t accept this phenomenon very well; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Young people easily join to this kind of interaction. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>There is a great number of different ethnicities in Portugal, among them Chinese, gipsies, Ukrainians and people from the former Portuguese colonies, like Angola, Cape Verde, among others. </li></ul>
  6. 6. In Portugal <ul><li>Unfortunately, these immigrants aren't well integrated in our society, because most of them still live in slums or in not so pleasant neighbourhoods in the suburbs of the cities. </li></ul><ul><li>ACIME is a non-governmental organization that helps in the integration of these immigrants and protects their rights. </li></ul>
  7. 7. In Castelo de Paiva <ul><li>Here there is a great acceptance of multiculturalism; </li></ul><ul><li>The main ethnicities are Chinese, gipsies and Moroccans. </li></ul><ul><li>A fact that proves our acceptance and respect towards other ethnicities and cultures is this project meeting and the spontaneous acceptance of our families of this project. </li></ul>
