Globalization of Education in the Face of the Challenge of Multiculturalism: The International Scholarships of the Isle of Youth in Cuba (1977-2012)

Projektbeschreibung

 

This project aims to analyse the variants of the cooperation experience of the Cuban Youth Island's International Scholarship Program, which consists of a large investment in close to 40 countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America. Taking into consideration the complicated global, national and local scenarios of the initiative’s framing, how did then Cuba address the challenges posed by the massive dimension, intergenerationality and multiculturalism of the program ―especially in the order of transfers in education? A holistic and interdisciplinary analysis of this experience will take not only the institutional view into account ―that is, the program’s purposes and its administration―, but it will also consider those views from below, the long term in the students' itineraries and worldviews, as well as the impacts of that education in the future. Likewise, the results of the research could contribute to the contemporary debate on the formulas of aid that are effective in confronting what has been described as a world crisis of quantity and quality in education.
