Journal Article

Abstract


  • Bilingualism in general, and hilingual education in particular, appears to be

    inherent to practical interculturalism, and vice-versa. Each area has been investigated

    separately, and connections have been made between interculturalism and education in

    general. However, no specific study has so far connected bilingual education with

    interculturalism. The aim of this article is to establish such a connection, deriving from

    both theoretical and practical issues. Insights from an ongoing project conducted by the

    Jewish-Arab Center (JAC) at the University of Haifa, concerning the relationship between

    bilingual education and practical interculturalism in the northern Galilee arc presented in

    this article. The paper presents theoretical consideration of bilingual education and

    interculturalism as a framework for understanding and evaluating the social changes that

    have taken place in the Galilee over the last decade, regarding socio-political relationships

    between the Arab-Palestinian and the Hebrew-Jewish communities in the region
