Abstract

The premise of Lessons from Cross-Cultural Collaboration is how the authors, Eloise

Hockett and John Muhanji, have used the foundational components of cultural humility

within various cross-cultural collaborative initiatives. Hockett is a tenured professor at

George Fox University, Newberg, Oregon, United States, while Muhanji is the Director

of Africa Ministries for Friends United Meeting (FUM) in Kisumu, Kenya. Cultural

humility is an inestimable virtue that both countries have learnt over time in the process

of implementing the concepts of peacekeeping practice in Kenya. The principles of cultural

humility are so important to the authors that it informed their writing style, allowing

the use of less formal academic language and the use of the authors’ first names.
