Synopsis
Five films exploring the challenges and benefits of our modern, multi racial society: begin with an interview with Franco Frattini, Vice-President of the EC. 1) "Year of Education for Immigrants": As a result of international mobility and migration, diversity has long been a reality in German society and schools. Marina Kadner supervised a competition between schools known as "integration@school" to identify the best projects for the integration of immigrant children, to encourage their implementation and to disseminate the results throughout Europe; 2)"Common Values": How can dialogue be established between individuals of differents denominations?
