The intercultural dialogue

The European social sciences developed a large amount of qualitative studies and methods in the field of comparative methods.The qualitative
methods are devided into three parts:
- comparative narrative methods interviews in literal stile
- observers reports and memory reports of observers on events of the past
- and the intercultural dialogue under the premisses of the EU enlargement as a principal of social sciences and education in order to work
together.
All three methos have their own tradition and past and are part of an international improvement on research in Europe. My investigation will treat the research-principles on intercultural dialoge , the use of it and the methods implied. How do Europeans politics refer officially on it and what to do in social-sciences in it. The I will investigate the impact and the influence of social scieces in research and teachig in the field of sociology and
historz and in how far the method of intercultural dialogue is used and in how far the theory - creation is used.
The German speaking sciences have implemented the intercultural dialogue as a must in the school -education, migration work and
cultural work, wherever it appears from literature to theatre, and social-sciences to investigate and make research on it.
Is there a difference among the European member-states how to use the contact and cultural difference and what impact it has on the national
consciousness is a second problem the minority politics on the Balcans, like all states with minorites have this method in their policy.
The third part is dedicated to the general utterance of famous socila-scientist in the field of intercultural dialogues of oral histroy and migrations
research.
