CULTURAL CONTEXT LAB
activity takes place within a cultural context. Examples of
cultural context affecting business affairs include: (i) in a Buddhist
culture a business person from the West should never cross one's legs
revealing the soles of the feet - the sole of the foot is a symbol of
the Buddha; and, (ii) in an Islamic culture a business person from the
West should not offer alcoholic beverages to guests - alcohol is
illegal in many and immoral in all Islamic countries. At

intelligence. Over time additional intelligence will be added.
launch, the site provides no data series. WCIN will, over time, collect,
compile and display comparative trend statistics using WCIF categories. Data
will be developed
and time streamed from existing data sources. Time series will be published on a moving
10-year timeline. Each data series will be described using official manuals. Data description
identity and cultural sovereignty are becoming more important policy
objectives as the economic and political sovereignty of nations is being eroded
on the road to globalization. Erosion of economic and political sovereignty
is the result of membership in regional and global economic and military
alliances, for example, the North American Free Trade Agreement, European Union,
the World Trade Organization and NATO.

laws, legislation, regulations, practices and
procedures. They are reported using WCIF categories:

Hansard, Congressional Record and
