Kriolu and European Interculturality

Kriolu and European Interculturality

(p.132) Chapter 5 Kriolu and European Interculturality
Cape Verde, Let's Go

Derek Pardue

University of Illinois Press

This chapter examines the ideas and policies of interculturality in relation to Kriolu. Building on the argument that there exists something like “Creole citizenship” and that it influences what it is to be “Portuguese,” the chapter explores migration as a shaping force in the “host” country. To this end, it juxtaposes a set of life stories from Cape Verdean Kriolu rappers and their families against policy documents from the European Commission and the Portuguese state agency ACIDI. More specifically, it considers what Kriolu tells us about the state of multiculturalism and interculturality as examples of European community ideals and whether Kriolu might offer important insights into “intercultural competence.” The chapter makes the case that discussions of citizenship and migration necessitate a dialogue between experiences and policies.
