Preface
THE INCREASING IMPORTANCE OF INTERCULTURAL
COMMUNICATION IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD
While the rise of digital mobile technology has provided instant connectivity to people and cultures that were once distant and isolated, worldwide political and
economic uncertainties highlight the increasing importance of intercultural communication. There are now more people displaced from their homelands than ever
before—65 million or 34,000 people per day fleeing war, droughts, and other calamities (UNHCR Global Trends, 2016). Increasing ethnic and religious tensions and
the weak world economy lead us to question the ability of humanity to live peacefully and to doubt the benefits of globalization. How will the expansion of globalization be affected? If the euro fails, what happens to Europe’s economy, and what kind of impact will there be on the exchange of products and the movement of people around
the world? How will economic changes influence where tourists, businesspeople, students, immigrants, and refugees come from and where they go? What languages
will be studied, and what is the future role of English in the world? Changes such as these are likely to influence the shape of intercultural communication.
When we look back upon the international and intercultural situation at the time we first began writing this book, we recognize how rapidly the world has changed
and how, as a result, these changes have raised even more pressing issues for intercultural communication scholars and practitioners. We could not have predicted that people in the United Kingdom would vote to leave the European Union nor that the United States would still be involved in conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan after
25 years. The world will continue to change in ways that we cannot predict, but we must face this dynamic world open to new challenges, rather than retreating to ways
of life that are rapidly disappearing.
