Location

Open to: Alumni | Public | Academic | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

An all-day symposium to honour the memory of Professor Jagdish Gundara (1938 – 2016), First Director of the International Centre for Intercultural Studies, UCL Institute of Education, this symposium explores some of the immediate and recurring challenges to the achievement of social justice in a global context and their ramifications for intercultural education. Issues concerned with truth, equity, social division and diversity are highlighted as a backdrop to a discussion of signposts for positive intercultural engagement at all levels of education. While recent political events and continuing violence and warfare, together with migration and refugee ‘crises’, fuel an ongoing climate of fear and reaction there is also an impetus to engage with more imaginative perspectives in the pursuit of increased global justice. Accordingly, there are contributions from those in fields of law and the social sciences as well as those involved in pedagogy, adult learning and teacher education.
