Borga, Charlotte, Ed. (1978). L'education bilingue: Pour quoi faire? (Bilingual Education: For What Purpose?). Cahiers du CMIEB, Number 11. This issue contains five articles on aspects of bilingualism and bilingual education, as well as documentation on the "Centre Mondial d'Information sur l'Education Bilingue" (CMIEB). The introductory article presents reasons for being able to communicate in more than one language in the world as it is today, and proposes that bilingual education is a means toward overcoming the language barrier. The other articles deal with: (1) a definition of bilingual education as teaching in two languages as required by political, geographic, or social conditions in a given country; (2) a history of "Le Monde Bilingue," the parent organization to CMIEB; (3) passage from "Le Monde Bilingue" to bilingual education in the interest of greater international comprehension; and (4) majority and minority languages and the necessity of bilingual education. In addition to these articles, there is some documentation on the purpose and activities of CMIEB and communication between "twin cities" and bilingual education. An appendix consisting of questionnaires and a list of addresses concludes the issue. Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingualism, Communicative Competence (Languages), Cross Cultural Training

Hughes, Joanne; Donnelly, Caitlin (2006). Contact as a Policy Mechanism for Promoting Better Relations in Integrated Schools in Northern Ireland and Bilingual/Bi-National Schools in Israel, Journal of Peace Education. Policy initiatives in inter-group education evolved in Northern Ireland and Israel at around the same time. In each jurisdiction, the emphasis is on improving relations between protagonist groups in ethnically divided societies. Central to this objective and at the core of integrated education (Northern Ireland) and bilingual/bi-national education (Israel) is sustained contact in a shared learning environment. Based on qualitative research in four schools, this paper examines the nature of the contact experience in two integrated schools in Northern Ireland and two bilingual/bi-national schools in Israel. Through comparative analysis, and with reference to contact theory, it illuminates some of the contextual and process variables that seemingly mediate the quality and moderate the effectiveness of contact in each school setting.   [More]  Descriptors: School Desegregation, Foreign Countries, Comparative Education, Bilingual Schools
