  • Contents summary: "The first word I learned was 'ayep', which means 'it does not bring honor, but shame'. I was not tought to decide between right and wrong, but between what violates the honor and what is not." Thus Yassir Eric, in the preface of this book, describes his education in Sudan.People from sham-oriented cultures are obviously different from most Europeans. When people are so differently shaped, how can they understand each other?This book aims to help Europeans and migrants develop harmonious relationships. The first part combines experiences of shame and the restoration of honor in Africa with stories of the Bible. The second part examines how bridges can be built between right and honor-oriented people, especially in the Muslim world. The third part focuses on intercultural contacts between local people and migrants in Europe. The whole volume provides tips for cross-cultural work in a globalized world.
