This paper reflects on the links existing between interculturality and the expectations of peace, given that plural relations between cultures are not always happy due to the presence of conflicts. The study in-tends to show that the transformation and transcendence of such conflicts demand shared, common values, such as solidarity, compassion and hospitality, in order to attain intercultural peace. Interculturality is approached in an analytic and reflective manner, taking into consideration its problematic nature reflected in forms of violence. The study concludes that this violence can be conceived and made to be overcome with possibilities of achieving peaceful situations.
