Innovationen durch Globalisierung in der europäischen Schulentwicklung: zum Beispiel die Interkulturelle Pädagogik, Europa- und Internationale Schulen



Innovations in European educational systems generally demand time, especially if they are to take place across national borders. Against this background and from the perspective of Comparative and Multicultural Education this paper identifies and critically discusses three examples of educational innovations. The questions raised here are a) whether inter- or multicultural education, ‘Europaschulen’ (not to be confused with European schools, which are run by the European Union in several member states) and International Schools represent pedagogical reactions towards globalisation, b) which imply a productive manner of coping with globalisation, and c) what kinds of inclusion and exclusion with respect to these innovations can be identified.
