Regional Conference on Interreligious and Intercultural Education: Best Practices in the Americas
This final workshop focused on the Americas. It took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 23 October 2013 with advisory partnership from the European Association of History Educators (EUROCLIO).
The conference brought together researchers, practitioners, educators and policy makers from multiple fields, including Peace Education and Civic Education. The experts in attendance are all engaged on a daily basis with issues of cultural and religious diversity. The aim of the conference was to identify and learn from successes in the Americas region, while facilitating the expanded use of local and culturally sensitive models of intercultural education. The Buenos Aires event was the final such gathering in a four-part series of KAICIID regional workshops in 2013, aimed at promoting the international exchange of ideas, methods, models and materials. It followed similar consultations in the Euro-Mediterranean region, Africa and Asia.
