EJCCM Special Issue on Strategic Cultural Intelligence and Intentional Action

Call for Papers

There is an impressive broad range of literature relating to cultural intelligence, i.e. the capacity individuals need to have in order to be able to effectively communicate and act across cultures and to be able to integrate into new cultural contexts. However, new perspectives and issues are emerging due to the current wave of refugees and the observation that within numerous societies there is a widening gap between those who have some education and a workaday culture that fits labour market requirements, and others who do not. The pressing issue therefore is what can and should be done if significantly large groups of the population - for whatever reason - simply do not have developed cultural intelligence? For that reason, the European Journal of Cross-Cultural Competence and Management (EJCCM) plans to publish a special issue on Strategic Cultural Intelligence and Intentional Action.

The journal editors see at least four important contexts open to empirical research in this special issue:

  • integration of migrants,
  • integration of staff of acquired firms,
  • integration of university students, and
  • integration of unemployable individuals.

The call for papers is directed at scholars who perceive themselves as teachers, trainers, volunteers or politicians, who want to contribute to a better world.

The deadline for submissions is 1 November 2016. Final versions: 10 March 2017.

All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please read the journal's submitting page at www.inderscience.com/info/inauthors/author_submit.php
