About this book


Palgrave Studies in Global Citizenship Education and Democracy

This book explores how multiculturalism should be promoted throughout higher education due to its benefits for students. It adopts a strengths-based student-centred perspective and offers practical illustrations of how multicultural education can instigate students to understand each other and to relate to each other meaningfully. With the rise of international students in higher education across the globe it is crucial that institutions promote multicultural education for their wider communities.

Damian Spiteri is a lecturer at the University of York, UK. He has worked as a social worker, teacher, and college and university lecturer in multicultural settings and classrooms for the past twenty years.
