Challenges of intercultural communication studies at the beginning of 21st century

José María Perceval

Abstract

An open, inclusive society is one that dynamically includes new proposals, groups and social changes. A closed society is one that, excluding and fearful, creates physical and mental borders, rejecting people, ideas and changes because of essences, identities and principles. Cross–cultural studies should not only remove, highlight and denounce the cheating approaches of these closed societys, but to show how open societies progress and closed stagnate and disappear in the midst of a collective suicide when the exclusion ends with free thought.
