ICCed-2015 Conference was organized in Kuala Lumpur on 8.-9. April

The Education for Diversities Research Group (E4D) from our Department and Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) organized an international conference entitled Intercultural Competence in Communication and Education (ICCed 2015) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 8-9 April 2015.

Participants from all over the world discussed new, critical and original approaches to the concept of intercultural competence. The most influential models were also 'dissected'.

The conference keynote speakers included: Anne Cheng from the prestigious College de France in Paris (France), Adrian Holliday from the University of Canterbury Christ Church (UK), Ezhar Tamam from UPM (Malaysia) and Fred Dervin from our department. Several publications will appear in 2016 to disseminate the results of the conference.
