fee EUR 150

Contact with people from other cultures at work and in everyday life is a common fact nowadays, a consequence of increasing globalisation and migration. Intercultural competence has become an essential skill for all people involved, be it in working life abroad or in multicultural teams in one’s home country. But what is intercultural competence? What is a culture shock? What options are there to deal with intercultural misunderstandings? How does conflict resolution work?
No ready-made answers will be offered, instead participants in the summer school will investigate fundamental issues in intercultural encounters and analyse common stumbling-blocks in interaction in this globalized world.
Become a member of a multicultural student team, investigate aspects of intercultural competence and design your own project.
