ICC GLOBAL on permanent server now... time to invite other colleagues!

It is my pleasure to offically welcome you to ICC Global, which has been many months in the making. As you know, ICC Global is a newly created online research network for those who are researching aspects of intercultural competence (ICC) in various disciplines and cultures. It is hoped that through the synergies/connections created through this network, the work on ICC research will be greatly amplified and enhanced through the connections of many.
