WELCOME TO CHAPTER 5: "CULTURAL HUMILITY"

"Cultural Humility" is the fifth chapter of the Diplomatic Planner. In this series, you will learn how cultural values play a large part in the operation of diplomacy and international relations. Societies that lack cultural humility have proven to assimilate xenophobic behaviour, fearmongering and hatred against foreigners. In this series, you will learn to develop self-awareness and cultural reflection, how communities become marginalised and 'othered', the concept of privilege and cultural barriers lead to misunderstandings, and how to adapt yourself to changes shaped by mandates, practices, attitudes, policies, and laws.

By the end of the chapter, you will know the difference between intellectually acknowledging a culture, and truly relating to it.
