The special focus of this yearâ€™s conference is deeply influenced by the ways in which globalization and migratory flows have come to shape all levels of contemporary society. In line with these broader social transformations, for educators and institutions of learning, the question of intercultural dialogue needs to be addressed. How might we approach multicultural complexity at different educational levels? If one of the major challenges of education in the 21st century will be how we deal with studentsâ€™ heterogeneity and complexity, from a pedagogical perspective, how we must prepare educators with the tools for necessary for intercultural knowledge and dialogue in a world where such diversity is considered normal?
