Intercultural Communications


In our multicultural and interdependent world intercultural dialogue is our chance to make a difference.

Intercultural communications engages in an "intercultural dialogue, a jointly travelled path towards learning and understanding, respect and responsibility. Different opinions become a source for new solutions, and culture turns into a valuable resource." (Liisa Salo-Lee)
