Journal of Analysis number 37: Intercultural Dialogue and Human Rights

European societies are certainly not, and never have been, homogenous communities (despite various all-out attempts to make them so). However, in this era marked by globalization, they are even less homogenous today. According to UNESCO, we live in a world whose diversity is reflected in the existence, throughout the planet, of 300 independent states, 5,000 ethnic groups, more than 6,500 languages and 8,000 dialects, 10,000 societies, more than 2,000 different cultures, and hundreds of monotheistic and polytheistic religions, in addition to millions of people who cross borders as immigrants and refugees to settle in societies that differ from their states of origin.
