This chapter draws on feminist theorizing on rape culture and victim blaming, and proposes a concept, racialized victim blaming, as a useful tool for understanding discourse on state violence.
The concept of racialized victim blaming is applied to historically analyze the genesis of the carceral state, and deconstruct public debates on police shootings and immigration crises.
This chapter argues that racialized victim blaming is used as a discursive tool to legitimize and mystify state violence projects. Officials and the media use racialized logics and narratives to blame the victims of state violence for their own suffering, justifying continued or increased state violence.
The concept of victim blaming is most often associated with violence against women. Here I demonstrate that victim blaming is also a useful tool for understanding state violence, particularly when attention is given to the place of racializing narratives.
Indian businesses are expanding to other parts of the world, and companies from across the globe are setting up businesses in India. For executives – both foreign and Indian – to thrive in India and abroad, it has become just as important for foreign executives and expatriates to understand India as it has become imperative for Indian executives to gain a global perspective. As a result of this fast-changing scenario, the demand for coaching is rising in India. This chapter seeks to understand the dynamics of being a European (German) Life Coach in India who also happens to be a woman. It explores cross-cultural coaching in India and attempts to provide some pointers on how to navigate through cultural differences, understanding cultural intelligence/cultural quotient, gaining intercultural sensitivity and helping clients with cross-cultural conflict resolution.
