We believe that tolerance and a willingness to resolve conflict is necessary but not sufficient to meet twenty-first century’s economic, political, cultural, and other challenges. What we need is a new type of leadership and the capacity to cooperate as well as to define globally shared interests and values!
Therefore, we have designed an extraordinary project encouraging research, a worldwide dialogue, and the spread of sustainable ideas for our common future: the Transcultural Caravan– a hub of global thinking.
Our projects tackle the challenges of the twenty-first century from a new perspective - conducted on a global scale, aiming to answer the burning questions of our transcultural world.
Some of our latest projects are the following:
Global Governance of Women’s Rights with Transculturality
To what extent does transculturality improve the outcome of UN Women’s economic empowerment policies?
This research project aims to show that the transcultural approach could provide a solution for UN Women to find unity in diversity.
What challenges do companies face when implementing Sustainability Reporting Measurement Systems? This intenational case study wants to analyze the current development and implementation of SRMS in respect to transcultural leadership.
Transculturality or Hybridity? The Case of Hong Kong
What does transculturality and cultural hybridity mean for the local citizens of Hong Kong? This field study wants to tackle questions of transcultural cooperation and its relating determinants and processes.
Our caravan moves on! On Wednesday the 27th of March, we invite interested ZU students of all programmes to join our kick-off event for our TSRG Brazil. At this event we will announce detailed information about the fieldtrip to Brazil, the research project and participation possibilities.
In our Uganda fieldtrip we will visit the Hope Development Initiative in Kampala, in their rural communities and various of its stakeholders. We will conduct many interesting interviews to advance the individual research projects of the group members that will together answer our overarching question about transculturality and the Hope Development Initiative.
