YP Discussion Group - Cross-Cultural Communication

Events | Young Professionals

Discussions are occurring on college campuses across the country about appropriate ways to approach sensitive topics. Key to these discussions are ideas about power imbalances and the ability of historically-wronged groups to communicate their experience. Given the immense power imbalances inherent in any conversation about international relations, how do we approach these issues in a way that ensures all voices are heard? In an environment of "safe spaces" and concerns about cultural appropriation, can a free, open, and robust dialogue occur? What are appropriate ways to challenge current forms of cross-cultural communication?
