Book description

With the number of international migrants globally reaching an estimated 272 million (United Nations report, September 2019), the need for intercultural training is stronger than ever. Since its first edition, this handbook has evaluated the methodologies and suggested the best practice to develop effective programs aimed at facilitating cross-cultural dialogue and boosting the economic developments of the countries mostly affected by migration. This handbook builds and expands on the previous editions by presenting the rational and scientific foundations of intercultural training and focuses on unique approaches, theories, and areas of the world. In doing so, it gives students, managers, and other professionals undertaking international assignments a theoretical foundation and practical suggestions for improving intercultural training programs.


'It truly is a key springboard for training and research in the current age of identity. It comprehensively presents two crucial elements: what we know about effective intercultural training theoretically, methodologically, and empirically, and what we don’t know. This is an essential reference for practitioners, teachers, and researchers.'

Cindy Gallois - Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of Queensland, Australia

'This long-awaited volume achieves a leviathan task: it bridges theory and practice, details intercultural training methods that are culture-general and culture-specific, and clarifies intercultural training’s past and present while forging a cohesive vision for future development and growth. This is, quite simply, essential reading for intercultural researchers and practitioners.'

Adam Komisarof - Professor of Intercultural Communication and Acculturation, Keio University, Japan, and President-Elect, International Academy for Intercultural Research

'This handbook is both a classic and contemporary highlight in intercultural training research and practice. The editors have set a cornerstone for the field by bringing internationally recognised scholars together. This volume is a must for every professional in the field.'

Claude-Hélène Mayer - Professor in Industrial and Organisational Psychology, University of Johannesburg, South Africa

'Since its first edition, this book has been an indispensable resource for scholars, practitioners, and students who study or develop training methods to enhance intercultural competence. This edition preserves its legacy: high quality analysis and sound guidance for practice or future research.'

Mark E. Mendenhall - J. Burton Frierson Chair of Business Leadership, University of Tennessee, USA

'Here is an essential update for interculturalists seeking synergy and human community in an age of invasive technology, ideological divides, ecological disasters, and corrosive us-versus-them political populism. The authors force us to ask how we will rewire our brains to live together in a way that promises a synergistic future.'

George F. Simons - creator of Diversophy
