The British Journal of Religious Education has an international remit. However, this editorial concentrates on developments associated with the Council of Europe. These are by no means inward looking, since the Council of Europe is deeply concerned with Europe’s relationship with the rest of the world. It is an especially appropriate point to consider the work of the Council of Europe in the field of religions and education. The year 2008 was the European year of intercultural dialogue, in which the Council of Europe published its important White Paper on ntercultural Dialogue (Council of Europe 2008), which includes a section on religion. The Committee of Ministers’ recommendation to member states on the dimension of religions and non-religious convictions within intercultural education is likely to appear during 2009. A further important development is the launch this year of a European Centre – the European Wergeland Centre, based in Oslo – closely connected to the Council of Europe, and covering research and teacher training in intercultural education and education for democratic citizenship, including the dimension of religion.
