I agree with the terms and conditions, especially point 10 (only private use, no transmission to third party) and accept that my order cannot be revoked.


I begin this paper with Barack Obama's Middle East speech "On a New Beginning". Obama's speech demonstrates the foundation and possible application of transcultural leadership in practice. To me, Obama and his corresponding speech exemplify transcultural leadership because they incorporate several elements I will outline over the course of this paper: Focusing on transcultural commonalities, rather than intercultural differences, in order to enable the capacity to cooperate; developing a global understanding of the world’s interconnectedness and contributing to a shared global moral order that does not amount to the worldwide imposition of a current one; and, most importantly, to bridge societal divisions, to embrace the challenges humanity faces, and to tackle them on the basis of a global sense of responsibility.

On June 4, 2009 the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama stepped up to the podium at Cairo University in Egypt. To that day, war had overshadowed the Middle East and tensions between the US on the one hand, and states of the Middle East on the other hand, had hardened. One reason for this situation was, for instance, George W. Bush’s "War on Terror" including the war against the Iraqi government that started 2003. Six years later, Obama gives his Middle East speech.
