Economic and cultural globalisation has increased and intensified cross-cultural contacts and has resulted in an increasing number of 'multiple' and hybrid cultures. Cross-cultural contacts have created moments of tensions and incommmensurability, but also moments of dialogue, understanding and transgression. The exploration of cross-cultural contacts in a global transnational world is essential in understanding how we can learn to live with difference in ways that go beyond tolerance. Nonetheless such a dialogue is difficult, particularly if cross-cultural contact between dominant and minority cultures is based on unequal power relationships.
