To sum up this chapter, it is
clear that we need new responses for the new situations
in which we find ourselves.
IF multicultural societies are a
reality and they will be so in the future...
IF exploitation of the many is being
used to support our privileged societies...
IF in our world, which is becoming
smaller and more interdependent, very few problems stay
within the present frontiers and will affect us all sooner
IF countries and/or states are aware
of their impossibility to remain isolated...
IF we believe in equal human rights
THEN our actions should also express
those commitments to bring about change.
THEN our response cannot be to build
institutional or personal walls to "keep the others
in their place".
THEN our response cannot be patronising
THEN we should begin to relate to
each other at an equal level - whether its between different
societies and cultures or between majorities and minorities
within the same society.
THEN discrimination in the international
economic system must be fought, otherwise marginalisation
and poverty will continue on a global level.
THEN we need to work on understanding
and modifying prejudice and stereotypes.
In short, we have to establish
a way to change our Multicultural societies slowly into
