The Intercultural Development Research Institute is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to contribute to a constructivist definition of the field of intercultural communication and to support continuing and new research in intercultural development.
Through this website we intend to promote, collect and disseminate publications in this field and to alert visitors to upcoming activities sponsored by IDRInstitute and courses offered by IDRAcademy.
IDRAcademy is returning to Sao Paolo the 17th of June 2015 for an edition of the Constructivist Intercultural Communication course. More information can be found at this link.
