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.
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.
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
