We are happy to announce that Dr. Luisa Conti has published our first article out of the ReDICo project, which was created as part of our sub project on “Intercultural Competence and Communicative Practises within International Cooperation in Virtual Contexts”.

The study with the title “Caring and Power-Sharing: How Dialogue Influences Community Sustainability” identifies specific factors which have had a meaningful impact upon the engagement of people, embedded in their various communities. The analysis shows that a genuine dialogic culture fosters positive feedback loops towards the development of sustainable communities. The establishment of inclusive communities implies one fundamental condition: tackling the reproduction of power dynamics through conscious power-sharing.
