When peace-building and humanitarian work calls for conflict resolution, intercultural competence is required to develop culturally sensitive and appropriate solutions. It is important to develop our intercultural competence, which is linked to empathy to help us to understand others and see the world from their perspective through listening and observing, critical thinking, flexibility, conflict resolution skills, and tolerance of ambiguity.
