Washington, DC, March 17, 2007 --( We live in a world of contradiction: cultural distance is felt less and differences more. Intercultural skill and understanding has become a must-have. Many speak of diversity and multiculturalism, of interethnic reconciliation appreciation, but there is much confusion about what cross-cultural competence is, how one gets it, and how to apply it.

It is specialized in interculturalism “from the ground up” focusing particularly on the inclusion of minorities of language, religion, & race. “We are internationally informed and yet locally trusted, offering truly intercultural win/win solutions that change society for the better,” says Meyjes.

In an age of globalization, violent extremism, mounting intercivilizational tensions, and the transnational diversification of societies worldwide, we should take heed.
