What is intercultural communication ?

Posted on Updated on


Intercultural communication may be broadly defined as ‘communication between people from two different cultures’ (Chen & Starosta, 1998:28).

Other definitions include ‘a symbolic, interpretive, transactional, contextual process, in which people from different cultures create shared meanings’ (Lustig & Koester, 2007:46) or ‘the effects on communication behavior, when different cultures interact together. Hence, one way of viewing intercultural communication is as communication that unfolds in symbolic intercultural spaces’. (Arasaratnam, 2013:48)

We will be talking about cultural context during our training sessions in Conflict Resolution, Negotiation and Presentation Weekend Schools -8, 9 and 10 December 2017
