Abstract: The book is based on a workshop held in Istanbul in November 2005 under the title "Learning about the other and teaching for tolerance in Muslim majority societies". In conveys critical analyses and innovative visions for tolerance education in school, focusing particularly on the role that religious and ethnical education, social studies and history teaching can play in fostering tolerance and promoting inclusive notions of citizenship. In the book, one will find examples of how scholars and educators from Muslim majority countries see the special challenges that these societies face when trying to rethink the way in which religion, history and civics are taught in school. The chapters focus particularly on challenges and recent developments in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Lebanon, Nigeria, Palestine and Turkey.
