The essays in this volume approach the complexity of the concept from a number of different angles. These include theoretical models for defining the concept of 'intercultural competence', outlining paths for future research; application of the concept in the teaching and learning of foreign languages, cultures and literatures; exploration of institutional and sociocultural influences on mediating intercultural competence; and analysis of the concept's impact on such diverse contexts as international business, religious constructs and notions of selfhood and identity.
