50 case studies to understand intercultural communication
Institutional Communication Service
26 July 2017
The Master of Advanced Studies in Intercultural Communication (MIC) provides free public access to over 50 case studies related to topics related to intercultural communication, in different contexts such as war, families, interreligious conflicts, economics and labour.
In today’s globalized society, multiculturalism has an increasing impact on civil society, public institutions and private enterprise. In order to foster and exploit diversity, the adoption of a cosmopolitan perspective and the analysis of the various aspects of intercultural communication is important to acquire a greater understanding of how individuals from distinct social, ethnic and religious groups communicate and perceive the world in which they live.
To help improve and broaden awareness on this issue, students of the MIC (experts and professionals in the public administration sector, international organisations, NGOs, cooperation and development organisations, business, media and academia) have shared their experiences through the case studies, available here: www.mic.usi.ch/case-studies-english
