Research questions

The project focuses on talk and interactional in multinational crisis management trainingIn actual operations, military and civilian workers are required to have good communication skills. 


PeaceTalk asks questions that respond to recognised challenges in crisis management interaction (see figure): 


1. How can team buildingteam cohesion and team work be strengthened through interaction in multinational teams (in tactical operation centres and smaller teams)? 


2. What features of talk and interaction enhance communication across institutional, cultural and social boundaries (e.g. military–civilian, military–police, military–non-governmental organisation)? 


3. What verbal and interactional practices successfully establish situation awareness and initiate action in ad hoc disturbances (e.g. explosions, road blocksthat require quick responses and decisions?
