There’s no doubt that in contemporary societies, even more complex and mixed, multicultural, religious pluralism is a central matter, connected with problems that derive from the clashes between different groups and identities. Considering the fact that religion and belief continue to play a central role in defining the social, cultural and political structures, even in “secularized” societies, try to solve and mediate the conflicts is the challenge of our century. But how can we face the cohabitation of different necessities, in order to create a homogeneous system, but at the same time guarantee the rights and survival of every religious identity? My study would like to analyze some attempts made in these years, at theoretical and political level, to conceive and theorize some rules and principles usable to regulate the problems linked to religious pluralism, underlining how difficult it is to apply normative and abstract rules on an empirical and concrete level, modified by historical and temporary changes and transformations. In particular, I would like to analyze these issues focusing on two Documents, The Principles of Toledo and the Abu Dhabi Guidelines on Teaching Interfaith Tolerance: written the first in 2007, and the second in 2019, both make attention on the importance of education in order to build a more equal and plural society, and they show a kind of “normative project” that societies try to create and observe; is this project enough to respond to the complexity of the social order and changes, linked to religious, ethnic and cultural changes?
