Cultural Communication and Intercultural Contact

In this collection of essays and papers, the authors are interested in what happens when different cultural identities enter in contact and how cultural identity can be accomplished through interaction. The main view exposed in this volume is that communication cannot ignore culture or make it a variable in an equation but that cultural patterns are essential in communication practices.

The cultural Imperative

He also examines the forces that tie us to our cultural heritage and how this phenomena has influenced our cultural biases.

The Aspect of Culture in the Social Inclusion of Ethnic Minorities

Organiser: European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI)

This conference was organised by the European Center for Minority Issues (ECMI) to disseminate the results of the project ‘The Aspect of Culture in the Social Inclusion of Ethnic Minorities’. Researchers from Estonia, Latvia, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Sweden presented their results on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of their governments’ National Action Plans to different Ministries, Embassies and other institutions from other EU, neighbouring and their own countries.

From 2002-2006, cultural policies from the National Action Plans of Estonia, Latvia, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Sweden were evaluated with regard to their impact on promoting social inclusion of ethnic minorities, especially Roma/Sinti groups. These National Action Plans on Social Inclusion were established under the European Union’s Open Method of Co-ordination.

Border Crossings Conference

Organiser: Aix-Marseille Institute for Advanced Studies (IMéRA)

This one-day interdisciplinary conference explored the interaction between bordering, rebordering, bridging and bonding. Participants examined national and local policies that affect migrant practices, especially border control policies and how they impact on migrants’ social strategies, economic achievements and cultural practices. They also tried to identify means that non-state actors and organizations use to help migrants in bridging the ‘here’ and ‘there’.

Funded under the 6th Framework Programme for Research of the European Union, Thematic Priority 7 – Citizens and governance in a knowledge-based society. This transnational project involved 180 inter-disciplinary researchers from 31 countries to explore themes such as states; legislation and institutions; power and culture; religion and philosophy; work, gender and society; frontiers and identities and Europe and the wider world. It also discussed citizenship, identity, gender, migration, discrimination and tolerance.
