The term of multiculturalism states that different social groups with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds coexist in a society and that these groups manage to live together. The first time this term is used in the U.S.A, Australia, England and Canada. Unfortunately, in all the heated discussion around the term no clear definition of the concept has yet emerged. Rosado (1996) states that: “Multiculturalism is a system of beliefs and behaviors that recognizes and respects the presence of all diverse groups in an organization or society, acknowledges and values their socio-cultural differences, and encourages and enables their continued contribution within an inclusive cultural context which empowers all within the organization or society”.
In European countries, the phenomenon of multiculturalism was developed long before Greece, our country as an immigrant country proudly declared the homogeneity and the Orthodox Christian identity by the great majority of the population. But in the case of Thrace, it seems that those not correspond fully with reality. An important starting point of the concept of multiculturalism in Greece is considered the establishment of a “fairness” and “egalitarianism” in the minority in Thrace in 1991 by the then government
