IX REGIONAL CONFERENCE IACCP
From a Cross-Cultural Perspective: Conflict and Cooperation in Shaping the Future of Europe
Organiser: International Assosiation for Cross-Cultural Psychology and SWPS University
Europe and its direct geopolitical neighborhood have become a stage for many dramatic events and processes that no one would have dared to predict some years ago. The wars in the Middle East and the refugee crisis; the Russian-Ukrainian conflict; the economic and political tensions between the EU member states, affecting Union’s stability (e.g. Brexit); and the shocking terrorist attacks – are the most obvious examples of our day to day reality.
These macro political problems have direct cultural roots as well as implications. Never before in its history has cross-cultural psychology been faced with such tests of practical importance. Never before have the research problems on immigration, acculturation, and inter-group relations had so much relevance. Our keynote speakers, invited symposia and round table debates will address these problems.
