The Centre for Applied Cross-cultural Research responds to the challenges of globalisation, migration and growing cultural diversity.
Established in 2004, the Centre for Cross-Cultural Research (CACR) responds to the challenges of globalisation, migration and growing cultural diversity through sound theory and research to foster:
- understanding of cross-cultural similarities and differences
- acceptance of cultural diversity
- developing effective strategies to improve inter-cultural communication and
- enhance intercultural relations for the benefit of individuals, groups, organisations and the wider society.
We are international experts in cross-cultural research. Our members are leading New Zealand diversity researchers, and we maintain close ties to international researchers at the highest levels.
All CACR activity within New Zealand acknowledges the central importance to this nation of the Te Tiri o Waitangi Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand's founding document. Read more about the Treaty here.
CACR has Undergraduate, Honours, and Post-Graduate students, and regularly has short-term research interns. The majority of CACR students study psychology, but CACR is cross-disciplinary and opportunities exist in other disciplines as well.
