ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses and evaluates the situation of intercultural education in Greece. He mentions that the emergence of this interculturalism appears at first in the 1980s at the level of theoretical analysis and later in the 1990s at the level of educational policy, coinciding with the arrival of a large wave of immigrants from the former Soviet Union and from the Balkans. The author concludes that if the political leadership in Greece, sincerely intents to address the issue of social cohesion and diversity of its citizens, then it should seek to do so by strengthening democratic values of equality, justice and solidarity, since these will assure the right of all citizens, but also the right of cultural groups to preserve important elements of their culture while participating in the common culture.
