Encountering Cultural Differences: Politics

There were times in Italy when I felt like a minority because I was an American — I’d read the newspapers critical of our government and watch European news shows that dissected every political and economic decision the American government made and I just felt like a lot of Italians viewed me differently because I was an American.-Meredith, Florence

For one of my classes, I had to attend a conference about the British and American constitutions. The UK is famous for having an unwritten constitution, so it was interesting to hear how that came about. What blew my mind though was when during the Q&A, people stood up questioning why anyone would ever have a written constitution.– Michelle, London
