Successful collaboration begins with a shared language, hence the need for a glossary. This joint effort of contributors from several teams ensures, on the one hand, terminological and conceptual coherence across not only our theoretical approaches, but also the qualitative case studies and quantitative research conducted in OPPORTUNITIES. On the other hand, our glossary facilitates communication between the academic side of the project and the fieldwork conducted by NGOs, uniting our teams working from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Mauritania, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania and Senegal.

Common ground, i.e., a set of shared goals, ideas, interests, principles and beliefs, is the basis for a fair dialogue and a key element of Cross Talks. Strategies for establishing common ground include recognizing the other as a fellow human being, emphasizing the common good, reminding each other of the principles of humanity, and joining the other in the quest for well-being.
