Cross-Cultural Educational Exchanges for Peace Through Common Humanity
How do human connections formed from cross-cultural educational exchanges promote peace and understanding? These personal connections can lead to deeper cultural understanding and awareness, which can lead to peace. Many cross-cultural educational exchanges such as Fulbright were created to promote peace and understanding. Cross-cultural educational exchanges now take on more forms due to increases in the ability to share knowledge which supplies more opportunities for conflict and misunderstanding or peace and understanding. Due to this, it is important to have students take part in cross-cultural educational experiences to create personal connections, so they can better understand cultural differences. This experience can create global citizens who are able to understand and navigate the barriers of culture. Through literature review and synthesis, human connection is shown to be vital in the creation of peace and understanding across cultures.
