Coexistence of Pluralities through Practices of Intercultural Relationships

Jorge E. Castillo Guerra
Issued Date: 9 Oct 2018

Abstract


This article investigates how migrants and refugees contribute to forms of co-existence among peoples with different religious and cultural orientations. Drawing on theories of intercultural philosophy and decolonial thinking, the author focuses on transformations of identity and faith among Catholic Latin American migrants in Europe and the United Sates of America. He argues that when these migrants encounter exclusion and uprooting, processes of transformation converge in parish communities. There they create mutual learning processes leading to new intercultural practices such as the deaconry of culture and relationship.
