German term or phrase: Deutungshoheit
The word appears in this sentence: "Seither sind finanzielles Kapital, der Zugang zu Bildungsangeboten und Gesundheitsversorgung, politische Macht, Deutungshoheit sowie Ressourcen geographisch extrem ungleich verteilt." "Deutungshoheit" is clearly something which is unevenly distributed across the globe like financial capital, access to education and health, political power, and resources. The sentence appears in a document which sets out the guiding principles of an international NGO.

agree  Björn Vrooman: I think this is the perfect NGO website to go with your links: https://www.narrativeproject.org/#ourstory @asker I'd prefer "such as"; Fowler's does too.

  -> Thanks. Excellent find. I also agree on the choice of 'such as' (like = similar to but not including)

agree  Michael Martin, MA: Yes, that should work

  -> Thanks.

agree  Steffen Walter: In a way, this seems to be related to the concept of 'information asymmetry/asymmetric information', particularly in the context cited by the asker. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_asymmetry.
