Culture is viewed as a collective set of values and beliefs. These values and beliefs can be beneficial or a source of discourse in any community or workplace. Research and information is developed to determine solutions to cultural conflicts in society. It is important to provide and encourage constructive sources of information (through research) to improve societal issues.

This research community intends to be a resource on issues related to Cultural Conflict and Society with quantitative/ qualitative research projects, doctoral dissertations and other information.
