Facilitating Multicultural Groups provides a practical resource for facilitators working with people from culturally diverse backgrounds. Based on research and facilitator experiences from diverse countries, it advises on how to adapt learning materials and participatory processes to suit different situations.

It offers techniques to develop inter-cultural dialogue as a tool for enhancing understanding and teamwork between people from culturally diverse groups. These techniques are varied, and range from metaphors, stories, and dance, to language, silence, and working with interpreters and translators. These and other techniques described in the book are intended to facilitate context-appropriate communication about differences, particularly within conflict situations.
