Welcome to the Homepage of IAIR 2013
This biennial conference of the Academy focuses on pushing the boundaries of intercultural research. Persistent problems related to intercultural concerns continue to plague our planet – from violent conflict, clashes over immigration, international terror, and inequities across institutions. This is compounded by a global economic crisis that requires intercultural cooperation. The immediate objective of this Conference is to provide an international forum for participants to consider and question information through meaningful dialogues, so in turn they may further contribute to the positive development of their own scholarship as well as the state of our world. Whether we are conducting research or applying it, we need to consider whether we are asking the types of critical questions that are necessary. Are we pushing the boundaries of our fields, or staying bounded by existing frameworks of knowledge, methodology, or applications? As an interdisciplinary body, we have the ability to use the knowledge and skills from each of our respective disciplines to examine and confront issues at hand.
The 8th Biennial Conference of the International Academy for Intercultural Research (IAIR) brings together scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines in the field of intercultural relations.
