KC93 Transnationalism Translated into Turkish

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#93: Transnationalism, which Renu Pariyadath wrote, and which Candost Aydın has now translated into Turkish.

As always, all Key Concepts are available as free PDFs; just click on the thumbnail to download the PDF. 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.

KC93 Transnationalism_Turkish

Pariyadath, R. (2022). Transnationalismus [Turkish]. (C. Aydın, trans.) Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 93. Available from: https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2022/10/kc93-transnationalism_turkish.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.

Musician Without Borders: Riff Cohen

Applied ICD

“A musician without borders, singer-songwriter Riff Cohen shares her vision about intercultural dialogue in an interview for Culture(s) with Vivendi.

Born in Tel Aviv from a father of Tunisian origin and an Algerian mother who lived in France, Riff Cohen grew up in a multicultural environment. In her first album, A Paris (AZ, 2013), the young artist creates an atypical musical style, as eclectic as her origins. According to Riff Cohen, music can bridge cultures and foster mutual understanding.”

I think music is also a language…

European U Institute: Research Fellow (Italy)

Research Fellow in the
Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, Migration Policy Centre, European University Institute, Florence, Italy. Deadline: 18 November 2022.

The European University Institute’s Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) carries out research on the major issues facing Europe, bridging the world of academia and practice through interdisciplinary and applied research. The Research Fellow will be based at the Migration Policy Centre (MPC) which is part of the RSCAS. The MPC is a multi-disciplinary research centre that conducts advanced research on the transnational governance of international migration, asylum and mobility. It aims to provide new ideas, rigorous evidence and critical thinking to inform major European and global policy debates.

This position is for a research fellow to work on DYNAMING (funded by HorizonEurope, Jan 2023 – Dec 2025), a new international research and policy project that will analyse the decision-making of potential and actual migrants, and how migrants’ decisions and behaviour – and migration processes more broadly – are perceived and understood by policy actors. DYNAMIG will have a strong focus on migration from and within Africa. Led by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, the DYNAMIG consortium includes eight research institutions across Europe and Africa, including MPC.

The Research Fellow will carry out research work in an independent manner and collaborate on the research work of the project. Working closely with Prof. Martin Ruhs, and collaborating with African partner institutions that will conduct interviews and surveys in Africa, the Research Fellow will provide analyses of how European and African policy actors perceive and think about migrants’ decision-making and broader migration processes, and of the ideas and understandings of migrants’ behaviour underpinning migration (and migration-related) policies. Project outputs will include academic publications (at least 2 journal articles), blog posts, and policy briefs.

International Virtual Exchanges

Intercultural Pedagogy

D’Agostino, Susan. (2022, August 31). Virtual exchanges promote equity in global learning. Inside Higher Education.

This article describes a virtual exchange project between students in the USA coordinated with students from Iraq on the topic of the United Nations’ sustainability goals. They examined sustainability challenges in their respective communities, working together both synchronously and asynchronously. Then they worked together on solving a single applied problem.

The most common virtual exchange programs focus on intercultural dialogue and peace building; science, technology, engineering and mathematics; and global or international affairs…

Study abroad programs often target students who have adequate financial support to cover the costs, and so are not as often accessible to students who do not. Virtual exchanges bypass that difficulty, while still providing much of the cultural exchange and learning. As study abroad programs were substantially curtailed due to the pandemic, this is also a good way to maintain international connections when travel is limited.

The program supporting this particular example is the Stevens Initiative, “a U.S. government–funded initiative administered by the Aspen Institute that works to expand virtual exchange options to regions of the world where U.S. students have not studied abroad in large numbers, including in the Middle East and North Africa.”

UNESCO: We Need to Talk: Measuring Intercultural Dialogue for Peace & Inclusion


UNESCO. (2022). We Need to Talk: Measuring Intercultural Dialogue for Peace and Inclusion. Paris, France: UNESCO.

UNESCO 2022 We need to talk report coverIn addition to providing 5 case studies, and 5 think pieces, this new global report from UNESCO provides several explanations for understanding intercultural dialogue:

ICD …is a process undertaken to realize transformative communication that requires space or opportunities for engagement and a diverse group of participants committed to values such as mutual respect, empathy and a willingness to consider different perspectives. (UNESCO & IEP, 2020, p. 6)

ICD is understood as a process undertaken to realise transformative communication across cultures and identities (UNESCO & IEP, 2022, p. 12)

As made clear in these two quotes, We Need to Talk builds upon earlier work outlined in the Conceptual and Technical Framework, published by UNESCO and IEP in 2020…ICD does not occur in a vacuum; instead, it requires specific structures, skills and processes to support it…Using the data from the Framework, this report analyses key trends and provides deeper interrogation of insights, particularly the effect of ICD on broader development and security outcomes.” (p. 6)

…the core purpose of the global report is to help governments, civil society stakeholders and other practitioners see the value of ICD, understand it conceptually, and know how to support it in practice. (p. 7)
