NAFSA, a United States organisation that advocates for international education, kicked off its annual conference on Tuesday 1 June with a talk by peripatetic journalist Nicholas Kristof, who said humility is one of the most valuable lessons he has learned in his travels around the world. Humility “breeds a certain amount of empathy”, which “makes it harder to demonise people”, said Kristof, who is known for his coverage of complex issues around global poverty, gender inequality and human rights for the New York Times.
