A leading researcher on humiliation, Dr. Evelin Lindner, defines humiliation as "the enforced lowering of a person or group, a process of subjugation that damages or strips away their pride, honor or dignity."[2] Further, humiliation means to be placed, against ones will, in a situation where one is made to feel inferior.
Lindner's research on humiliation and the effect of humiliation on groups is related to her segmentation of human history into three phases of development and her categorization of the ideal types of human societies that can be found in these stages.
The difference between feeling humiliated or not in these cases may depend on the subjective framing of the situation by each person involved when violence is perceived as accidental and non-intentional, similar to natural disaster, it may not be felt as humiliation.

  Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies
Humiliation is when you are put down and feel hurt because you deem being put down as a violation.
In collectivist contexts of honor, for example, humiliation is defined and experienced in ways that often contrast the ways humiliation is defined and experienced in contexts that emphasize the dignity of the individual.
And since feelings of humiliation carry the potential of leading to grave consequences, Lindner calls them the "nuclear bomb of the emotions," the results may range from breakdown of social relations to terrorism.

 Public humiliation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Public humiliation was often used by local communities to punish minor and petty criminals before the age of large, modern prisons (imprisonment was long unusual as a punishment, rather a method of coercion).
In the modern age, judicial public humiliation punishment has largely died out, most importantly when it is outlawed as by the United States Constitution since public humiliation is today considered cruel and unusual punishment, which is banned by the UN Convention on Human Rights, but not precisely defined.
The humiliation is generally intensified if the victim is unclothed (either partially or completely) as the exposure leaves the victim feeling vulnerable and helpless.

 The Politics of Humiliation
Humiliation is both a kind of action and a feeling the often accompanies the action and is always meant to accompany it.
In this way the politics of humiliation is a very real threat to civilization, which depends not so much on "security" as on the continued utilization and enrichment of the accumulated wisdom of science, law, history, and diplomacy.
The cure for a politics of humiliation is twofold: it requires both humility and respect—listening to critics and protesters instead of cursing dissident Iraqis and skeptical senators.

 CRInfo - Book Summary of Making Enemies: Humiliation and International Conflict by Evelin Lindner
Humiliation, she says, has the tendency to destroy everything in its path, making it "the nuclear bomb of emotions." Despite its central role in so much of human misery, surprisingly little research or writing has been devoted to this topic.
These cycles of humiliation are cycles "...of violation and vindication that both sides believe they are obliged to pursue." The parties feel "obliged to purse" the humiliation cycle because to withdraw from the cycle brings further humiliation.
Today humiliation and one,s response to it are extremely important to ensuring peace, but humiliation was not always prevalent in human discourse.

 Humiliation Story and School Spankings: Shyness
To be on the receiving end of school or maternal spankings or spankings from any other source, to suffer humiliating spankings or any other humiliation story, and to be the center of humiliating experience can generate or feed Shyness.
At a later stage, the child is spanked and begins to perceive a threat in the person and to develop the expectation of hostility.
Thus, it becomes evident that the causes of Shyness are complex and are part of the evolution of the "self." Any happening in the life of a person contributes to Shyness only if it is incorporated into the "self" as a concept with a negative sign.

 WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future: Dignity, Humiliation and Changing the World
What you're unlikely to see is the inclusion of "humiliation." Yet, as we've witnessed in Europe over the last week or so, the belief that one's dignity has been insulted in a way that implies that an individual or group is unworthy of respect can be a powerful catalyst for unrest, anger and violence.
Humiliation is an incredibly intense emotion, yet the differences between how different societies and cultures perceive it seem to be poorly understood -- and this lack of understanding can have tragic consequences.
Humiliation and anger are symptoms of a cultural divide that not only drives violence but also the most world-changing, peaceful revolutions in consciousness that this world has ever seen (eg.

 humiliation
Humiliation means the enforced lowering of a person or group, a process of subjugation that damages or strips away their pride, honour or dignity.
The results of the research project on humiliation as related to genocide and war show that processes of humiliation are elementary, because genocide and war often occur when underlings try to replace their masters (and keep hierarchy intact), or attempt to rise to equality (and dismantle hierarchical structures) as described by human rights ideals.
In all cases feelings of humiliation may be expressed in terms of violence and destructive confrontation that compound an already difficult transition with avoidable secondary problems of violent cycles of humiliation and counter-humiliation.

She defines humiliation as "enforced lowering of a person or group, a process of subjugation that damages or strips away pride, honor or dignity." The analysis focuses on the humiliating effects of words and actions, and those related to incidents of violent conflicts.
