What is the role of education in a world where we no longer have a clear vision of the future and where the idea of a single, universal model of humanity seems like the residue of a bygone age? What role should educators play in a world where young people find themselves faced with deep uncertainty about their future, where the prospects of securing a stable, long-term career seem increasingly remote and where intensified population movements have created more diverse communities in which different cultures find themselves living side by side, no longer bound together by the belief that the other would eventually be assimilated into ‘our' culture? Faced with the bewildering features of our liquid modern world, many young people are inclined to withdraw - in some cases into the online world of games and virtual relationships, in other cases into anorexia, depression, alcohol or even drug abuse, hoping to find shelter from a world perceived as more and more dangerous. Others launch into more violent forms of behaviour, like street gangs and the looting carried out by young people who have been excluded from the temples of consumption but are eager to participate in the ceremony. And all this happens while our politicians look on, uncomprehending and indifferent. In this short book Zygmunt Bauman - the leading social theorist of our liquid modern world, here in conversation with Riccardo Mazzeo - reflects on the predicament of young people today and on the role of education and the educator in a world where the certainties of our predecessors can no longer be taken for granted.

Youth have always had higher unemployment rates – about twice or more than the average – as they are usually the last to be hired in an expansion and the first to be let go in a recession. In addition, young people engage in extensive job searching in their early years, and this can imply considerable job churning as both youth and employers look for a good match. This highlights the importance of facilitating the school-to-work transition and having early interventions to assist such youth before negative conditions set in. It also highlights the potential importance of determining those young people most “at risk” of long-term unemployment, and of targeting or streaming them into programmes that will yield the largest incremental net benefits given their characteristics. Unemployed youth without previous work experience often are not eligible for unemployment insurance benefits when they first enter the labour market. When they do receive job search assistance, they often face a bewildering array of programmes that are available to assist them, often with little guidance to help them select the programs that best meet their needs. Consequently, ensuring that today’s youth do not become a “lost generation” is an urgent matter. George Bernard Shaw once said that it is too bad that “youth is wasted on the young”, implying that youth do not realize the opportunities they have as youth and only see them as they get older. There is a danger, however, that many of today’s youth may be never have those opportunities and hence not even see them with hindsight. This book and others in the ADAPT Labour Studies Book-Series are intended to deal with these challenges, to make sure that youth is not wasted on the young.

This book primarily analyses the current situation in intercultural education and intercultural competences, and addresses the challenges to, and possible ways of dealing with, different perspectives in intercultural education. Advances in the new millennium, such as the revolution in information technologies, have led to a reduction in distances between people, stronger ties between different geographical areas, and greater mobility. This volume examines how these advances seem to have given rise to profound economic, environmental, political, social, and cultural crises, not just within nations, but also in relations between cultures. Such crises are of concern to all aspects of human life, including family, work and mass media, but they particularly affect educational institutions. The papers in this collection explain, therefore, why it is necessary to invest in education.

Che cos’è il male oggi? In che modo si può dire che le sue manifestazioni, le sue spinte, le sue modalità di aggredire il tessuto del mondo e delle persone che lo abitano si siano modificate?Zygmunt Bauman, uno dei più grandi pensatori viventi, già nel 1989, con Modernità e olocausto, aveva riletto le atrocità del Terzo Reich sovvertendo l’opinione comune che si fosse trattato un «incidente» della Storia e dimostrando che invece la «società dei giardinieri» della modernità aveva raggiunto con l’olocausto il suo risultato più esemplare. In questo libro Bauman compie un ulteriore decisivo passo avanti nell’identificazione del «male» ai giorni nostri. E lo fa con una ricognizione delle tesi fallaci che si erano affermate nel Novecento (dalla «personalità autoritaria» di Adorno alla «banalità del male» di Hannah Arendt) per mostrare poi, in un corpo a corpo con le opere di Jonathan Littell e di Günther Anders, che la presa di distanza dagli esiti dei nostri atti distruttivi (resa non solo possibile, ma obbligata, dalle mirabilia tecnologiche e dalla costrizione «diversamente morale» a non sprecare armi la cui produzione ha richiesto quantità esorbitanti di denaro) contribuisce a erodere la nostra sensibilità già gravemente indebolita e oggi prossima alla cancellazione.

The result of an international event celebrating the second UNESCO International Jazz Day held on April 30 2013 at the University of Padova, Italy, this book represents the development of a project begun some years before to investigate the issue of improvisation, considered as a multi-faced concept and practice. The initial focus of this project was to discuss the different meanings attributed to the concept of improvisation, starting from questioning the common misunderstanding which interprets improvisation as a naïve behaviour rather than high-level performance. According with these premises, Education as Jazz represents a metaphor and a challenge, exploring the potential of jazz conceived not only as kind of music or art, but rather as a mix of values, attitudes, and skills fundamental in everyday life and in human development. As such, the book adopts an interdisciplinary perspective and a multidimensional approach. According to the rationale of the UNESCO International Jazz Day, which highlights the role of jazz in promoting peaceful societies, intercultural dialogue, gender equality, and innovative spirit, this book offers a concrete educational resource and theoretical framework oriented towards a new pedagogy for freedom.

Un’interpretazione del conflitto in funzione dei soli parametri giuridici ed economici sarebbe destinata a lasciare in ombra realtà che sfuggono a spiegazioni razionali: la dimensione emotiva dei comportamenti delle parti in lite, producendo soluzioni ‘di carta’ che lasciano aperte le ragioni di fondo del conflitto. La mediazione, invece, conduce ad accordi tendenti a soddisfare appieno i bisogni delle parti. Ma alcune mediazioni riescono, ed altre no: dipende da un quid ‘misterioso’ sul quale il mediatore fa leva, a volte con competenza, altre meno. Quel quid è il fattore umano, centrale nel conflitto, che va oltre gli interessi, tocca i bisogni apparenti e soddisfa quelli reali, esistenziali, profondi. Il mediatore che ne ha consapevolezza può portare le parti a prenderne atto, ad elaborare le ragioni del contrasto sino a superarlo, eliminando alla radice i motivi del conflitto. Questi è il mediatore che ha una buona formazione filosofico-umanistica. La formazione comporta un radicale mutamento di mentalità rispetto a specifici metodi e contenuti, onde consentire al mediatore professionale in ambito civile, familiare, penale, sociale, scolastico, aziendale gli ampliamenti d’orizzonte necessari per comprendere le complesse relazioni fra i fatti e le persone. Questo il tema del libro che traccia le linee guida della formazione del mediatore: un percorso inedito che può costituire un riferimento per quanti si occupano di formazione dell’adulto. Rappresenta una opportunità di professionalizzazione oltre che per ciascun mediatore anche per chiunque abbia responsabilità nella gestione delle liti, per chi deve fronteggiare contrasti nella sfera lavorativa e privata, per ogni persona che intenda sviluppare competenze per vivere relazioni sane, ove l’altro non rappresenti un problema ma una risorsa costruttiva. Il volume, frutto dell’esperienza didattica e professionale dell’Autrice, approfondisce le tecniche da usare nell’attività di mediazione nelle alternative dispute resolution. Partendo dalla definizione del concetto di mediatore, ne viene delineato il ruolo, che risulta essere fondamentale nei procedimenti c.d. A.D.R.: da ciò l’esigenza della formazione e dell’apprendimento delle tecniche di mediazione. L’Opera è aggiornata alla l. 9 agosto 2013 n. 98 che ha profondamente modificato l’istituto della mediazione rendendola obbligatoria per alcune materie. Il volume, frutto della collaborazione tra Wolters Kluwer Italia, Utet Giuridica e Il laboratorio sulla mediazione dell’università di Firenze presieduto dalla prof.ssa Lucarelli, è un utilissimo mezzo di approfondimento e formazione per il mediatore. PIANO DELL'OPERA PARTE PRIMA - La forza di un pensiero altro sul conflitto La base di partenza: una nuova mentalità La mediazione filosofico-umanistica Un’idea particolare di conflitto e dei vizi delle dinamiche relazionali PARTE SECONDA - La ricerca di un modello di formazione Lo stile di formazione del mediatore Una proposta di formazione, fra metodo e contenuti Il Manifesto della formazione umanistica del mediatore

Society today faces a difficult contradiction: we know exactly how the physical limits of our planet are being reached and exactly why we cannot go on as we have before – and yet, collectively, we seem unable to reach crucial decisions for our future in a timely way. This book argues that our definition of prosperity, which we have long assimilated with the idea of material wealth, may be preventing us from imagining a future that meets essential human aspirations without straining our planet to the breaking point. In other words, redefining prosperity is a necessary and urgent task. This book is the fruit of a long debate among 15 scholars from diverse fields who worked together to bring the depth and nuance of their respective fields to questions that affect us all. The result is a rich, transdisciplinary work that illuminates the philosophical and historical origins of our current definition of prosperity; identifies the complex processes that gave rise to the problems we face today; elucidates the ways in which our contemporary environmental, social, nutritional, economic, political, and cultural crises are interconnected; and explores why a half-century of economic growth has neither increased life satisfaction in the West nor vanquished world poverty. Approaching these broad-ranging questions from the specific standpoints of their disciplines, each of the authors offers thoughts for the future, considering possible escape routes and proposing changes to the way we live, behave, and organise society and public action – changes that actually respond, in an equitable way, to our deepest aspirations. Ultimately, in laying the groundwork for a public debate on this subject, this book poses a question to its readers: what is your definition of prosperity, and what can be done to promote it?
