Immigration, intercultural mediation and interreligious dialogue. Comparative readings from education

Rafaela García López, María Jesús Martínez Usarralde


This article seeks to reflect on how those religions named 'ethnic' question the figure of the immigrant within their world view. Taking as a starting point the interpretation of previous research, it is recognized in the present article how the nature of these religions determines their interpretation of the phenomenon of immigration. In the results, drawn from the findings, it is argued that the intercultural mediation stands as a privileged tool for the interreligious encounter and the socio-educative recognition of the reality of immigration. The discussion concludes with issues about the relevance of finding real courses of dialogue among religions, from both international and national examples.
