Legitimation is the act of providing credibility. Legitimate power can be defined as control over others by virtue of one’s superior organization position or status, and it involves making something acceptable in a given society through legitimization process which entails determining what norms and values will apply to this group/audience at hand.
Cultural legitimacy is the quality of being in conformity with an accepted set of rules. It can also mean that you are respected by your peers, and have a strong sense of belonging to something greater than yourself.
Cultural legitimacy is the ability to be in accordance with an individual’s culture, and it can mean different things for each person. For some people their cultural identity may come from what clothes they wear or how much make-up they put on; while others have more weighty concerns about whether these beliefs line up correctly with those of other members around them – including family members who might feel differently than oneself.
The measures are required to support and enhance the cultural legitimacy, symbolic validation of new tools. This can be illustrated through an example where a practice harmful for women is surmounted by means that achieve this goal in multiple ways:
The first step would involve creating more culturally legitimate interpretations on how it may have occurred so as not rely solely off patriarchalTrigger but also include other sources such as feminist scholars or even female perpetrators themselves! The second measure taken was developing alternative explanations about events based upon what we know today when looking back centuries ago because most records from those eras don’t always show us everything there actually happened during certain periods; thus use historical-critical thinking skills while revisiting primary source documents.
The unique role of technical cooperation in guaranteeing genuine and lasting economic reforms deserves a higher level of focus. There should also be additional financial resources allocated to the effort because these organizations have an important task ahead which includes ensuring cultural legitimacy.
