This book is a theoretical and practical discussion of intercultural

on the intercultural dynamics established between the members of multicultural
groups/teams in various types of work environments. Selected academics and
other experts on intercultural communication and interaction, representing
different approaches and professional experience, joined, collaborated and

model in eight axes: - Intercultural Responsibility, Emotional Management,
Intercultural Interaction, Communicative Interaction, Ethnography, Biography,

provides an interdisciplinary account of its topic as well as an activity which
aims to illustrate the ideas proposed.
