Intercultural contact situations have become an integral part of professional and everyday life in Germany due to the diverse globalization processes, ongoing digitalization and increasing international mobility. In this context, companies and authorities are faced with the challenge of integrating different perspectives and skills and designing intercultural communication in an efficient and respectful manner. Intercultural competence is therefore a decisive factor for administrations, employees and managers in order to optimally use the potential of social diversification now and in the future and to master challenges.
