Disrupting the dynamics of oppression in intercultural research and practice

Sonn, Christopher and Green, Meredith J (2006) Disrupting the dynamics of oppression in intercultural research and practice. Journal of Community and Applied Social Psychology, 16 (5). pp. 337-346. ISSN 1052-9284


In this special issue we focus on exploring the tensions, challenges and possibilities for working in contexts where relationships between groups are characterized by dominance and resistance. Some of the impetus lies in our own struggles and frustrations with models, guidelines and ‘recipes’ that have been developed to guide sensitive, competent and empowering research and practice across boundaries of ‘race’, ethnicity and culture. These models and guidelines are often framed as tools that will enable culturally competent transactions across these boundaries.
