Statement of Purpose
Transcommunal Cooperation News (TCN) is dedicated to providing a wide range of short accessible articles that describe
and discuss stories by and about those working for constructive transcommunal interaction among diverse groups around the
world. Given the destructive and divisional impetus of the corporate media with its subversive emphasis on negative examples of crisis, hostility, and misunderstanding among people our aspiration is that the TCN will provide evidence of real positive work that is being developed in thousands
of very different settings. Our impetus is a practical optimism that is fully aware of the difficult realities involved
in making cooperation work, but that is inspired by such efforts, whatever their strengths and limitations may be.
