We live in an era where many of us cross borders by land, sea or air. Our four guests: a law professor, a lawyer and two experts in multi-cultural dialogue have faced the challenge of being “strangers in a strange land,” and have discovered the importance of dialogue as the way to develop mutual rewarding relationships in their work and private lives. Join us for a conversation as they reflect on their personal journeys on how to live and work across boundaries.
