The aim of this paper is to discuss two perspectives in relation to intercultural education and diversity in Sweden. One of the perspectives concerns the historical and current situation of the five Swedish national minorities with a special focus on education. The second perspective is related to religious diversity and education, as connected to an increasingly democratic, plural and inclusive society. Both perspectives are highly relevant when analysing intercultural education in a specific national context. The last section highlights two main discourses which have been predominant during the last century in relation to education and diversity in Sweden.
