From the clash of civilizations to co-existence in diversity
Borut Mikulec

Summary:  Although European countries are becoming multicultural and multiculturalism is bringing a new quality of life for Europeans, we believe that the problems associated with multiculturalism in the field of politics, society and education arise because the concept of interculturality does not have a clear theoretical basis on which to rely. This article tries to show positive models that can be found in world literature and which can provide the theoretical basis for intercultural policy. These models are: global ethos, constitutional loyalty, distance from the other (critique of tolerance) and recognition.
