The 6th annual meeting of members of the International Network of UNESCO Chairs in Communication (ORBICOM) will be held on May 4, 5, and 6, 2017 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Communication between people from different cultures is essential for the successful realization of a borderless multicultural world and the digital era we live in today. Various conflicts and misunderstandings have emerged in local, national, regional, and global contexts, at the macro level, i.e. in the national and global spheres, in the social-political realm (group, ethnic, tribal, racial, and belief); at the meso level, i.e. in the business or organizational realm; at the micro level, i.e. interpersonal level (including between genders).
