The Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters is a concrete response to the recommendations of the Council of Europe’s White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue “Living together as equals in dignity” (, Section 5.3 “Learning and teaching intercultural competences”, paragraph 152: “Complementary tools should be developed to encourage students to exercise independent critical faculties including to reflect critically on their own responses and attitudes to experiences of other cultures.” The Council of Europe is a political intergovernmental organisation founded in 1949 with its permanent headquarters in Strasbourg, France. Its mission is to guarantee democracy, human rights and justice in Europe. Today it serves 800 million people in 47 states. The Council of Europe aims to build a greater Europe based on shared values, including tolerance and respect for cultural and linguistic diversity. The Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters and supporting documents were developed for the Language Policy Division of the Council of Europe.
