Today’s societies are differentiated up to a very high degree, due to the flux of migration and refugees, but often just because of historical developments that led to the current situation. Influencing factors can be post-colonial politics, economical dynamics, changing awareness of diversity in a specific context, and, of course, the overall globalization of information.
Sometimes, intercultural issues derive from differences in the cultural encoding and decoding of our activities. Often, as well, diversity is interpreted as ideology and the encounter of conflicting value systems.
The Summer Academy aims at developing applied solutions for intercultural challenges in business and society, focusing on the topics of international relations and intercultural conflict resolution. Furthermore, it introduces the most important foundations of the study and research on cultural diversity and links it with solutions of sustainable socio-cultural integration in this context.
The Academy is being held in English and is open to anyone aged 18–35 with a demonstrable interest in intercultural encounters, especially undergraduate students and young professionals.
Reduced prices for students, volunteers, and employees of non-profit organizations are being offered.
