In this book, the authors focus on the notion of mindful communication, which requires knowledge of diplomacy, politics, and economy as well as an understanding of cultural issues. After introducing key concepts and theories, the text examines modern approaches and methods to the study of intercultural communication before discussing processes and technologies. The last section looks at ethical issues relating to human rights, respecting cultural values, and the role of intercultural communication in the future of the global community. Addressing scholars and students in the fields of international relations, international studies, and intercultural communication, the book provides many examples drawn from world current affairs, politics, and diplomacy.
