A Secular Europe

Dr Lorenzo Zucca

Oxford University Press

Education is one of the main battlegrounds between religious and non-religious people. There are three major sets of challenges: the challenge from religious symbols in the classroom, the challenge from religious syllabuses in schools, and the challenge from students’ selection at the entrance. This chapter proposes a model to deal with these issues called ‘Classroom as a Tolerance Lab’, and which is distinguished from more conventional constitutional strategies of fitting diversity such as integration and accommodation. The Tolerance Lab promotes social cohesion by creating actual spaces where mutual understanding between religious and non-religious people is possible.
