Jackie Stacey's essay on the idea of being ‘open to difference’ is a discussion of her experiences of two very different groups: an academic centre for the study of cosmopolitan cultures and an introductory course on group psychotherapy. Exploring ideas about being open to the differences other people represent, she shows how the complex interactions played out in the groupwork course offer important insights for rethinking cosmopolitan aspirations.
