Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Education has played an influential role over time in economic, social, and cultural development and, hence, in the formation of individuals. The considerable increase in academic mobility, in recent decades, shows that it is an essential tool in students' education. Due to its specific characteristics, academic mobility has a strong link to multiculturalism, and one of its missions is to be a transmitter of values and is an important element for educational tourism. In this sense, this chapter intends to demonstrate the pedagogical potential of academic mobility, its individual and social effects in terms of peace education, and to explore the relationship between academic mobility and tourism for an environment of intercultural and peace sharing.
