CATARCI, Marco. Intercultural education. Theories, policies and practices of cultural pluralism in Italian education system. REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.46, pp.129-141. ISSN 2237-9843.

In the Italian context, educational research and intercultural practice move substantially along two main axes: a) in the first place, engaging in intercultural education means working to identify, design and test the most appropriate strategies for encouraging a positive insertion of foreign students in schools and, therefore, in society. This involves provision of the necessary conditions to ensure that all individuals (natives and immigrants) obtain the same rates of academic success; b) in the second place, because intercultural education is aimed at everyone and especially at native people, taking a perspective with an intercultural connotation means engaging in the objective of encouraging habits of reception in Italians. This can and must be reflected in the review and refoundation of the training axis of the school which must not aim only at the formation of the Italian citizen, but above all at the formation of a citizen of the world, who lives and acts in an interdependent global world.

Keywords : intercultural education; Italy; immigrant students; interculturalism; inclusion.
