Munduko Hiritarrok. Interculturalism. Baccalaureate 2. Experiencing cultural diversity


In this activity the students are asked to do an exercise on “The clash of civilisations” by Samuel P. Huntington in groups. They must look for information on this theory and write a short report, in which they explain its main postulates and answer some questions. After analysing this theory, we will have a class discussion about other questions. Finally, we will watch a video as a final incentive.

The aims of this activity are to critically analyse theories on the role of culture in social conflicts and be able to avoid distorted reading of reality.
