This is why intercultural competence has become a key competence. Please note that this workshop is offered in German.

Living in a multi-cultural society [de]

Germany is a country which attracts immigrants, and this presents many challenges. It is not only that individual people experience cultural diversity in their everyday life – all institutions (e.g. authorities, welfare organizations, schools etc) are now experiencing how intercultural encounters are making changes to everyday working life. One way of reacting to this new situation is through intercultural opening. Please note that this workshop is offered in German.

What should I pay attention to when making a criticism? At Münster University, intercultural competence is increasingly becoming a key competence.
