This paper tries to supply an evidence-based set of recommendations for the development of an intercultural crisis communication (ICC) research agenda with three aims. First, to supply an advancement in our understanding of the state of crisis communication research in general. Second, to propose a grounded introduction to crisis communication for intercultural scholars who may not be as familiar with the field. Finally to distinguish three broad evidence-based areas for developing ICC research – (1) representing different cultural perspectives in crisis communication research, (2) placing American crisis research in a global context, and (3) evolving cross-cultural comparisons.
