From the introduction:

Transculturality can be described as a concept that helps to form “an institutional condition of local and global cooperation that allows the productive handling of cultural diversity and the curbing of its potential destructiveness”. Yet there is no clear academic approach on how to generate this ‘transcultural competence’ (TCC). The concept of transculturality assumes that transcultural values contribute to successful functioning within diverging cultures and helps in identifying and transcending cultural boundaries. However, the handling of diverging cultures and the awareness for cultures’ external networking seems intuitive and – to a certain extent – self-evident for one particular demographic: Biculturals.

This study examines whether biculturals are indeed favourably equipped with competences that are of a transcultural nature. In order to do so, it will first demonstrate how biculturalism can influence personality traits, and why this influence can be of relevance for transculturality. A definition of TCC will then be precisely elaborated. The competence dimensions derived from the literature will then serve as the basis for the comparative and quantitative assessment of TCC. The overall goal of this paper is to construct a Transcultural Competence Questionnaire (TCCQ) that allows the TCC of biculturals and individuals to be compared, who were not significantly exposed to a second cultural frame during the course of their socialization (as a matter of simplification, the second group will be described as ‘monoculturals’ throughout this chapter). At the end of this chapter, a discussion on the results of the TCCQ as well as an overview of the limitations and fields for further research will be presented.
