Welcoming colleagues to ICC Global!

All - It's been an exciting time for the ICC Global Network... we had another face-to-face research meeting during the Intercultural Horizons conference last week in Siena, with over 30 persons in attendance. As a result, we've had nearly 20 colleagues join ICC Global in the last week - so we want to extend a very warm welcome to those who've just joined us! And we want to invite you to introduce yourselves and share more about your own ICC work via postings in these discussion forums - we look forward to learning from and with you!

All - Here's the link to the new UNESCO publication on intercultural competences that just came out (this is the one that I was asked to be involved with a couple years back - and after many others' contributions, this is the final product) - I'd be very interested in your thoughts/reactions to this - especially since I'll be discussing it with colleagues from around the world at a UN-related World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue in Baku, Azerbaijan at the end of this month...
