Applied International Educational Standards
methodology is based on UNESCO's declarations,
recommendations and documents on education for
peace and tolerance:
The curriculum should promote tolerance, understanding
and respect toward the “Other,”
his or her culture, achievements, values and
way of life.
2. INDIVIDUAL OTHER: The curriculum
should foster personal attachment toward the
“Other” as an individual, his or
her desire to be familiar, loved and appreciated.
3. NO HATE: The curriculum
should be free of wording, imagery and ideologies
likely to create prejudices, misconceptions,
stereotypes, misunderstandings, mistrust, racial
hatred, religious bigotry and national hatred,
as well as any other form of hatred or contempt
for other groups or peoples.
