We understand interculturality as the relationships that exist between the various human groups that make up a given society; the sum of the relationships that exist within society between various majority-minority constellations, and that are defined not only in terms of culture, but also in terms of ethnicity, language, religious denomination and / or nationality. Consequently, the empirical referent of each of these constellations is highly contextual: in some societies, interculturality is used to refer to the diversity caused by migration, while in others the same notion is applied to interactions between ethnic groups such as “Gypsy ethnic group”.
Developing an intercultural sensitivity in young people helps them to: increase self-esteem, regulate their own social behavior, to better face patterns of commitment, affective requests, influences, to better adapt to different situations and to be more communicatively competent, to understand the multidimensionality of the situations and the multiple forms of solution of the possible tensions; to recognize, accept and appreciate the different approaches and points of view, to accept the explanations and interpretations of the world, which differ from their own, thereby acquiring broader views of reality.
