WU Online Papers
The Department of Foreign Language Business Communication seeks to increase the profile of its research in three particular areas of interest by means of an electronic publication. The WU Online Papers in International Business Communication emerged from the WU's electronic publication forum ePub and comprise three series which correspond to the focus areas of the Department.
In spite of the term "Working Papers" used by ePub, the WU Online Papers in International Business Communication are to be understood as finished articles and NOT as work in progress.
The aim of our Online Papers is to offer quick, easy and full text access to high-quality academic contributions.
Papers that are published in the WU Online Papers in International Business Communication may of course be published elsewhere.

Paper 1: Gundula Gwenn Hiller: Intercultural Communication between German and Poles at the European University Viadrina
