Problem

Eurocentrism

Other Names:
Western provincialism
Excessive bias in favour of European and Western culture
Nature:

The implicit, or explicit, assumption that European (or Euro-American) perspectives are in some way superior to those centred on other cultures or regions and as such deserves a privileged position in society and policy-making. This is sustained by the belief that Europe was the primary focal point of human history.
