WWU Summer School: European Campus of Intercultural Perspectives - August 26-30, 2019 – Training in intercultural competence for international students
Join us this summer at the University of Münster (WWU) and experience the European Campus of Intercultural Perspectives (ECIP)!
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?
The Institute of Ethnology of the University of Münster and its longtime cooperation partner ESE invite you to participate in this one-week intensive programme from 26-30. August 2019 to address these questions.
No ready-made answers will be offered, instead we will investigate fundamental issues in intercultural encounters and analyse common stumbling-blocks in interaction in this globalized world.
