Research both high-context communication and low-context communication and write a paper that addresses the following:

  • Define and discuss high-context communication and low-context communication, including key differences between the two concepts.
  • Identify the cultures for which low-context communication is more common and discuss specific cultural examples.
  • Identify the cultures for which high-context communication is more common and discuss specific cultural examples.
  • How would you apply knowledge of these concepts (high-context communication and low-context communication) to law enforcement? Why is it important, especially for law enforcement, to be aware of these communication differences? Provide examples.

Your paper should be written in APA style and contain a minimum of three full pages of content (does not include cover page or References page). Two resources outside of the class text are required, including one peer-reviewed reference
