This course develops insights into how effective intercultural communication and an understanding of the concepts of intercultural communication are critical to the successful management of social justice projects, problem solving, critical thinking, and conflict resolution in contexts with an intercultural dimension locally, nationally, and globally. For example, graduates who find themselves working for government or non-government organisations (e.g. UNICEF, Oxfam, Red Cross, WWF, World Bank, IMF) will operate in international teams with overlapping local, national, and international dimensions. In this course, the concepts and tools necessary for effective intercultural communication and conflict resolution are examined. The concepts and tools that are covered are explored at different levels, including cultural, micro-cultural and socio-relational. Through the examination of global conflict and social justice cases, students are encouraged to evaluate the suitability of various approaches in different contexts of conflict.
