Young Europeans now grow up in an era characterized by escalating economic, political, social and educational inequalities, increasing racism and xenophobia, a high level of unemployment and a declining trust in nearly all major social and political institutions. But how do these emerging processes of marginalization play out within and beyond educational institutions? How can we educate teachers for the new situation? In exploring these questions, the authors of this Honorary Volume pay their tribute to the research work of Professor Anne-Lise Arnesen, who has revealed an impressive effort in educating teachers for a diverse, tolerant and inclusive society throughout her working life.
