KC104 Constructive Intercultural Management Translated into Spanish

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#104: Constructive Intercultural Management, which Madeleine Bausch wrote for publication a few months ago, and has now translated into Spanish.

As always, all Key Concepts are available as free PDFs; just click on the thumbnail to download. Lists organized chronologically by publication date and numberalphabetically by concept in English, and by languages into which they have been translated, are available, as is a page of acknowledgments with the names of all authors, translators, and reviewers.

KC104 Constructive Intercultural Management_SpanishBausch, M. (2022). Constructive intercultural management [Spanish]. Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 104. Available from: https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2022/03/kc104-constructive-intercultural-management_spanish.pdf

The Center for Intercultural Dialogue publishes a series of short briefs describing Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue. Different people, working in different countries and disciplines, use different vocabulary to describe their interests, yet these terms overlap. Our goal is to provide some of the assumptions and history attached to each concept for those unfamiliar with it. As there are other concepts you would like to see included, send an email to the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz. If there are concepts you would like to prepare, provide a brief explanation of why you think the concept is central to the study of intercultural dialogue, and why you are the obvious person to write up that concept.

Sabrina Sharma: Dialogue of Reflective Thought

Guest Posts

Dialogue of Reflective Thought. Guest post by Sabrina Sharma.

The “Dialogue of Reflective Thought” (DORT) approach is a type of dialogue allowing parties to engage without a mutual resolve or change per se.

DORT is a process whereby two or more parties engage in dialogue, each without the intention to transform the other’s thought process or to expect that the other party would be placed in a position of mandatory consideration of the other to birth a ‘perception changing’ view. Although a shift may ensue from the dialogue itself, the goal is rather to share experiences and thoughts. If a transition occurs, it appears in the natural course of the dialogue itself.

Researcher or Senior Researcher, Migration Policy Scotland, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. Deadline: 14 May 2022.

A new, independent think tank seeks an enthusiastic and rigorous migration researcher who is able to help inform and frame migration policy discussion by effectively engaging decision makers and other audiences. Do you share our drive to promote a more constructive approach to migration? Can you help develop ways to shape and inform new approaches to migration through research, policy influence and inclusive engagement? Can you apply your strong grounding in research methods to real-world challenges in a changing context?

Migration Policy Scotland (MPS) was launched in 2021 and they are seeking a Researcher or Senior Researcher to work alongside their Director. The Trustees and Director can picture a number of ways in which an individual might help strengthen MPS and its work through this role. As a result, they are seeking EITHER a full-time Researcher or a part-time Senior Researcher but recognise that candidates may have skills and experiences that cut across the two roles. This is a remote working opportunity and could be based anywhere in Scotland, but it is likely to involve regular meetings, particularly in Edinburgh.

The successful candidate will combine a commitment to intellectual rigour with a keen strategic awareness and the ability to communicate the results of research to audiences in policy, the third sector and, possibly, the media.
