Resilience in Minorities


In this study we compare the situation of two minorities, the San people of Botswana and the Travellers in Norway. We want to explore how their way of life, their culture, travelling then want to show how knowledge of resilience and protective factors can be important for the survival and development of minority cultures in general and for the life and education of children in particular.

Key words: resilience, indigenous people, minorities, San people, Travellers, cross-cultural, comparative education
