TITLE : DIALOGUES ACROSS BORDERS: DISCOURSES OF INTERPERSONAL AND INTER-GROUP ENCOUNTERS
This special issue of the International Journal of Cross-Cultural Studies and Environmental Communication offers a peer-reviewed selection of thematically representative papers resented at the 4th ESTIDIA Conference hosted by Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, on 29-30 September 2017. The conference, whose title was “Dialogues without Borders: Strategies of Interpersonal and Inter-group Communication”, brought together an international group of junior and established scholars representing a wide range of disciplines and research approaches to dialogic strategies of interpersonal and inter-group communication. One of the major goals of the contributions included in the present issue is to highlight the role of contextspecific communication practices in dealing, from different disciplinary perspectives, with challenging situations emerging in interpersonal and inter-group encounters in 21st century societies, and mainly with the representation of individual and group migration processes, culture-specific perceptions of migrants/migration, as well as online and offline discourses about migrants.
