Summary/Abstract: Contemporary turn of informational revolutions raised vivid debates about genuine competencies and goals associated to intercultural communication. Geographies of exclusion became connected with ascent of new imagined and virtual communities, reshaping the democratic accountability and sustainability of Eastern and Central Europe. In this context, the study is pursuing two key hypotheses. First claims that intercultural training, carried through interactive didactic activities, represents a vector for increasing democratic behaviour, while the second one sustains that cross-cultural oriented educational curricula influence the establishment of civic responsibility. The research explores the intercultural competencies acquired by undergraduate students enrolled in communication sciences programs, following topics as: representations and discourses of majority and minority cultures, landmarks of marginality and stigma and not lastly, effects triggered by intercultural training upon active citizenship.
