Rethinking dialogue and education between Slovenia and China: Sustainability – our common language?

Sandra Penger, Vlado Dimovski and Judita Peterlin

Journal of East European Management Studies, 2015, vol. 20, issue 2, 153-173

Abstract: The paper presents the methodology of appreciative inquiry with the aim of fostering understanding of the Slovenian and Chinese educational environments. Besides using various methods within an action-based, longitudinal case study, we applied a novel methodology – chain pair interviews – that were conducted by the stakeholders of the Confucius Institute Ljubljana. The findings show that community building is the core value of both Slovenian and Chinese representatives; we therefore propose that sustainability represents a common frame of communication. We recommend that the development of sustainable leadership becomes the focus of the Confucius Institute Ljubljana’s educational activities, thereby presenting it with a competitive advantage.
