Abstract

We live at a time of unprecedented migration – between rural areas and urban metropolises and between impoverished and war-torn countries and wealthy nations. This migration presents opportunities (e.g. the vitality of new immigrants; the richness when different cultural groups interact) as well as challenges (e.g. disruptions of communities experiencing an influx of migrants). Successful navigation of these challenges will require a new generation of citizens with the abilities and dispositions to listen, take the perspectives of others, and collaborate. It will require people and communities to act with a shared sense of humanity and fairness; to be able to act and solve problems democratically. In this chapter we focus on how children’s sense of democratic responsibility can be promoted through storytelling and story acting.
