Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Centre for Intercultural Communication and Interaction, Belgium

The research centre ‘Centre for Intercultural Communication and Interaction’ (CICI) and the Centre for Intercultural Education focus on inter-culturality as a feature of present-day society. Themes are: religious, artistic and social and gender identity dynamics in the mixed urbanised world. The approach is anthropological, and the methodological line of attack consists of a combination of qualitative methodology and self-critical conceptualisation. CICI has undertaken applied research for policy makers as well as fundamental research. It offers training for intercultural abilities in the schools throughout Flanders
