If we look at the behaviour of individuals and groups, we see big differences on a global level. In some countries, common interests take precedence over individual interests, government interference is valued differently, religion and faith have a huge impact on daily life, opportunities for men and women are diverse, minority groups may or may not be seen and recognized. What in the world makes it that various, more or less universal phenomena are interpreted differently?
An introduction in Intercultural Sensitivity
In the X-Honours Inspiration Session of November 18, Jaap Sanders gives an introduction to what a culture is and how different cultures relate to each other.
