Overview

Cultural and spiritual resources are arguably essential to achievement of educational goals, both as economic and political initiatives, and as human rights, and this book will address questions surrounding education and inter-cultural understanding in a broad global framework. The end of the Cold War and the increasing pace of globalization have led to an emphasis on the economic role of education at all levels, as nation states have focused on human capital and come to regard universities as essential instruments for competition in a global knowledge economy. However globalization has also opened up a new space for cultural dialogue and the recognition and valuing of civilizations with ancient and distinctive spiritual roots. In the 21st century there is a strong sense of the need for new ideas and a renewed spiritual basis for human community. This collection of essays by some of the best scholars in the field offers new insights and ideas in this increasingly important area of scholarship and policy.
