What are the relationships between European and African values and/or between civic and Christian values? What is the response of Catholic Religious Education to the new political, social, cultural, and religious situation in Europe, especially considering the huge migration influx? Authors of this book raise many important questions connected with migration and education for further reflection.

The book contains very creative reflections on the evolution of civic education and religious education, on the mixture of religious and secular elements within education, on appreciation and understanding of differences between value systems of different ethnic groups, and on the sense of belonging to one's locality, country, continent.

These proceedings represent a source of mutual knowledge, experience, questions and opening of perspectives, so important for Churches, societies, schools, as well as for local, regional and national governments etc.
