Euro-Mediterranean Intercultural Trends Online Course

←Back to list of resources
The online course “Euro-Mediterranean Intercultural Trends” is based on the Anna Lindh Report on Intercultural Trends and Social Change in the Euro-Mediterranean region, including a unique public opinion survey among a representative sample of the Euro-Mediterranean population about mutual perceptions, values and openness to diversity.

The course is mainly targeted to lifelong learners who want to better understand the different cultures and values of the people around the Mediterranean; to social workers or researchers working in intercultural settings; to students dealing with intercultural subjects; to school teachers facing multiculturality in their classroom; to journalists reporting on cross-cultural issues and decision-makers wishing to gather data and analyses for policy development.

The course consists of four modules:

Module 1 Representation of the Mediterranean and Mutual Interest. Through this module, you will learn about common values and attitudes, interests and expectations of the people living in the EuroMed region and their perception towards other countries/people.

Module 2 Values and Mutual Perception. Through this module, you will learn what are the most important values for people living around the Mediterranean and how the role of women is perceived and it is expected to change.

Module 3 Interaction across Cultures. Through this module, you will learn about how people from the two shores of the Mediterranean interact and how they construct the representation of the “other” as well as the role of media in this process.

Module 4 Living in Diversity. Through this module, you will learn about the impact of religion on people’s point of view and what could be efficient actions to contrast radicalisation and for better living in multicultural cities and societies.
