The NWO theme Cultural and Societal Dynamics ties in with two international joint research programmes.

These are Cultural Dynamics and Cultural Encounters. Both are being carried out within the context of HERA, Humanities in the European Research Area.

  • Cultural Dynamics has been running since 2009, and has led to a wide range of partnership projects.
  • Cultural Encounters was launched in 2012; this programme deals with causes, conditions and consequences of encounters or interactions between individuals and groups from different cultures.
