Verständigungsprobleme zwischen Polizisten und Klienten mit fremdkulturellem Hintergrund wurden aus kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive bislang noch kaum erforscht. Die vorliegende empirische Untersuchung nimmt sich dieses Forschungsproblems in innovativer Weise an. Die entstandene Ethnographie präsentiert Einsichten in Wahrnehmungen und Handlungsformen der Akteure in diesem Feld, schildert typische alltagskommunikative Phänomene und verweist auf dringliche praktische Probleme. Insbesondere zeigt sie, wie Interkulturalität im polizeilichen Alltag verarbeitet wird, wie Polizeibeamte Fremdheit konstruieren und wie diese Konstruktionen mit strukturellen Aspekten ihrer beruflichen Praxis im Zusammenhang stehen. Die Ergebnisse basieren auf einer fast einjährigen teilnehmenden Beobachtung in verschiedenen polizeilichen Einheiten der Münchner Schutz- und Kriminalpolizei sowie bei der Polizei Rijnmond-Rotterdam (Niederlande). Gregor Sterzenbach, geb. 1967, Promotion in Ethnologie und Interkultureller Kommunikation an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, dort auch Studium der Ethnologie, Interkulturellen Kommunikation und Sozialpsychologie. Seit 1996 tätig in den Bereichen interkulturelles Training, Beratung und Forschung für Unternehmen, staatliche Institutionen, öffentliche Bildungsträger und Universitäten in Deutschland, China, Russland und Estland. Seit 2007 Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter am Institut für Interkulturelle Kommunikation der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. Forschungsschwerpunkte: interkulturelle Öffnung der Institutionen, interkulturelle Didaktik, interkulturelle Medienkompetenz und deutsch-chinesische Kommunikation.

The success of nearly all public- and private- sector policies hinges on the behavior of individuals, groups, and organizations. Today, such behaviors are better understood than ever, thanks to a growing body of practical behavioral science research. However, policymakers often are unaware of behavioral science findings that may help them craft and execute more effective and efficient policies. The pages of this new journal will become a meeting ground: a place where scientists and non-scientists can encounter clearly described behavioral research that can be put into action. By design, the scope of BSP is broad, with topics spanning health care, financial decisionmaking, energy and the environment, education and culture, justice and ethics, and work place practices. Contributions will be made by researchers with expertise in psychology, sociology, law, behavioral economics, organization science, decision science, and marketing. The journal is a key offering of the Behavioral Science & Policy Association in partnership with the Brookings Institution. The mission of BSPA is to foster dialog between social scientists, policymakers, and other practitioners in order to promote the application of rigorous empirical behavioral science in ways that serve the public interest. BSPA does not advance a particular agenda or political perspective. The first issue’s contents follow.
