What is Cultural Values

Handbook of Research on the Impact of Culture in Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding
Cultural values are the core principles and ideals upon which an entire community exists and protect and rely upon for existence and harmonious relationship. The concept is made up of several parts: customs, which involve traditions and rituals; values, which are beliefs; and culture, which is all of a group's guiding values.

Exploring Culture and Entrepreneurship Nexus in Peacebuilding: Beyond Fragility of Institutions as Source of Conflict
Essien Essien (University of Uyo, Nigeria)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-2574-6.ch021
The cradle of humanity holds viable and sustainable solutions toward living together and in peace. Conflict, restiveness, risk, and vulnerability, therefore, are not things that exists in many people, especially the developing economies, but what exists in their social and economic environments. Therefore, reducing conflict and violence by overcoming structural deficits that generate contexts of conflict, violence, and criminality means generating productive opportunities through entrepreneurship for young people to reduce social risks of everyday life. Relying on content analysis of existing literature and descriptive methodology, this study attempts an investigation of how conflict in the society can be addressed through entrepreneurship development for sustainable peace. Findings, however, reveal that peacebuilding activities could be linked to entrepreneurship development with the hope of reducing unemployment, poverty, gender inequality, religious intolerance, increasing self-reliance, managing diversity, ethnic differences, and a culture of peace.
