Multiculturalism through Azerbaijan window

20160511 Nuotr sdsfsf red copyThis course is about multicultural diversity and tolerance. Multiculturalism is one of the advanced theoretical and methodological aspects of social studies in economically developed countries. Nowadays, Azerbaijan has been successfully implementing this policy.

Not fortuitous that this year is announced as the year of multiculturalism. To remark that Azerbaijani multiculturalism is not only a study of the reaction of the society, it is also an important topic because diversity has significant consequences for the social, economic, and political institutions.

In the context of growing ethnic and cultural diversity, lack of alternatives to multiculturalism, which provides the necessary conditions for ethnic, religious and cultural tolerance, has become even more visible.
