I. Introduction We live in a world of cultural diversity, a mosaic of cultures. Cultural diversity can be an enriching asset, enhancing tolerance and mutual respect among different peoples or it can be a source of bitter interethnic conflict. In this paper the focus of attention is on the second, i.e. interethnic conflict resulting from ethnocentricity. The overall purpose of the paper is to explore ethnocentricity in interethnic conflict as a basis for teaching human rights courses in education.
