INTRODUCCIÓN
En la España de 1960, dos amigos, Martín y Marcos, deciden marcharse a Suiza en busca de trabajo. Martín, al haber perdido su empleo, se ve obligado a viajar con el objetivo de conseguir el dinero para pagar un piso del cual su mujer había dado su entrada. Marcos, por su parte, se marcha para hacer dinero. Después de no obtener el permiso de trabajo, deciden irse haciéndose pasar por turistas. Para ello llevan una gran suma de dinero para que en la frontera les dejen entrar. Van a un pueblo del norte de Suiza, y allí encuentran trabajo como mecánicos fresadores. Al poco tiempo de estar allí se dan cuenta de lo diferente que es todo: calles vacías, higiene, comodidades, etc. Después de un año, Pilar, al darse cuenta de la estafa del piso en el que habían invertido todos los ahorros enviados por Martín, decide viajar a Suiza con su hijo para ir con su marido con la excusa del cumpleaños de este. Así acaba la vida de soltero de los dos emigrantes. Pilar comienza a trabajar y su hijo a ir al colegio. Allí alquilan un piso y comienzan a tener una vida familiar. Cinco años después, totalmente integrados a la cultura suiza, reciben la noticia de que el padre de Martín se está muriendo. Este, con miedo de no poder despedirse, vuelve a España, aunque cuando llega su padre ya ha fallecido. Al regresar a Suiza convence a su familia para volver a España y con los ahorros de cinco años se compran un piso. Al llegar, después de tantos años en un país muy desarrollado, les cuesta adaptarse de nuevo a la vida española. Martín no encuentra empleo y tras plantearse volver a Suiza, deciden quedarse en España.

...grandes oportunidades. El desafío es atender la base de la pirámide económica, pues es ahí, donde se puede crear un enorme valor de mercado. Para ello la innovación estratégica se enfoca en cuatro puntos importantes: Accesibilidad, Aceptación, Disponibilidad y Reconocimiento. La empresa que quiere ingresar a un mercado de bajos ingresos primero debe ofrecer productos y servicios a precios accesibles. Para ello deberá desarrollar estrategias y ofertas que se adapten a los ingresos de los consumidores, tal como lo hizo Procter & Gamble ofreciendo micro paquetes de shampoo, jabón y la empresa de Telefonía Smart sacando micro recargas de hasta 0.50 centavos. Ambas empresas pensaron en el flujo de efectivo de sus clientes. En segundo lugar debe lograr la aceptación de sus productos o servicios por parte del cliente potencial. Para ello es necesario que la empresa moldee ciertas características del producto o servicio y lo adapte a las necesidades del mercado. Podemos citar el caso de Unilever, la empresa, analizó el entorno cultural de la India y lanzó un jabón económico con ingredientes especiales para la salud capilar. Además debe crear canales donde no existen y aprender a generar la demanda de mercado. Lo importante es desarrollar creativamente otros métodos de marketing que permitan difundir y entregar productos o servicios en las diversas comunidades.

Franco and Fascist Spain

...America today is where it is most strikingly accurate – Islamo-Fascism, a term that describes the enemies we, Western civilization, Israel, Spain, Denmark and democracies from India to Australia and even moderate Arab/Muslim states such as Turkey, Algeria, Tunisia and Lebanon currently face. China and Russia face this same threat as well but prefer to ignore it and pretend that it is only directed against Israel or the Western and capitalist societies.  During the latter part of General Franco’s long 35-year rule, more and more speculation revolved around the question of who or exactly what type of regime would succeed him. Unlike Hitler and Mussolini, Franco survived World War II as well as the isolation of his country by the Allies, who at first considered him a remnant of the Fascist states aligned with the Axis powers. Franco, however, was a military man whose career in the army and arch-conservative views propelled him to lead the uprising against the Republic, but he did not establish a political party nor did he express open support for any of the various Catholic, conservative, monarchist and fascist parties who rallied to his cause. In order to understand both what happened during and after the Spanish Civil War, it is necessary to distinguish between the coalition of forces that supported both sides in the conflict. Franco’s supporters were divided between those who hoped for a return to the monarchy, rival wings of the Bourbon dynasty, moderates,......

Discuss with reference to course readings and lecture notes. Intro: * The UN was established at the end of ww2 * Its main purpose: maintaining international peace and security * Un charter: refers to the needs and interests of peoples * The UN remains to be relevant however it tends to be flawed in many ways possible Although there are many flaws to the UN, it remains to be relevant due to the crucial consolidating role it played in, promotion and development of public international law, defence of the universality of human rights, dissemination of new ideas about peace and security, advocacy of plans against poverty, protection of the environment, protects 22m refugees and hosts to 7,500 meetings a year in Geneva alone. Although we do have political order since the presence of the UN, such political order might not be good because due to its flaws, the UN’s unstable trust and legitimacy is what keeps Yes we do have political order, but that might not be good because trust and legitimacy is what keeps the institution moving on the path all states can depend on.

Starbucks and (Un)Fair Trade

...Starbucks and (Un)Fair Trade Posted on November 15, 2013 by ADRI Leave a comment Read it? Rate it! Introduction It is a cold, winter day in the middle of December, and you are looking for a warm, comfortable place to go and get some work done. You decide to head to the local Starbucks on the corner, where you order a tall Peppermint Mocha—with whipped cream and chocolate syrup, of course. You then make your way to a cozy chair in the corner, where you set up your laptop and books. The atmosphere is perfect. The store design is perfect. The employees are perfect. And the coffee is…well, that is up for debate. As consumers, many of us know Starbucks as being one of the most popular brands in the coffee industry. Many people also know that Starbucks offers Fair Trade certified coffee, which the company often uses in its marketing campaigns to demonstrate how ethically responsible it is. Some consumers are not aware, however, that Fair Trade certified coffee is not as humane and virtuous as it seems. In fact, it is not really fair in any sense of the term. From a deontological ethical standpoint, Starbucks does not live up to ethical ideals in its promotion and sales of Fair Trade certified coffee. History of Fair Trade Certified Coffee The trend toward Fair Trade certified coffee stems from the Contra Movement, which occurred in Nicaragua during the 1980s. The Contra Movement resulted from the Nicaraguan government’s unfair treatment of coffee farmers. The...

"Un"Social Networking

...“Un”Social Networking We live in the time where communication is possible without having to exert so much energy into it. This is a time when social networking is the main source of our communication. Nowadays, we need only to have computers, cellular phones included, and a proper internet connection, to be able to communicate with someone at our fingertips. It seems that social networking has altered the world for the better, but is that all there is to this phenomenon? Do we really benefit from social networking? Although social networking may have changed the world for the better, it may also have a negative impact on a person. Such issues as causing distraction among youth, changing the way a person interacts with other people, and causing health problems are some of the problems created from the technological advancement of this day and age. Social networks have been fabricated as the means of establishing and maintaining contacts and meetings in order to build online communities of people with similar interests and activities. These advancements could be more convenient for exchanging messages, following the latest trends, joining interest groups, and participating in real life events. Most know of the small-world phenomenon, soon after meeting a stranger, we are surprised to discover that we have a mutual friend, or we are connected through a short chain of acquaintances.

Un Mission

...Essay on the United Nations and peacekeeping. The UN Security Council is the main organization of the United Nations dedicated to the resolution of conflicts and peacekeeping. It is composed of fifteen members, five of whom are permanent, namely China, France, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States, and ten of which are elected by the General Assembly every two years. When the Security Council is confronted with a problem that can represent a threat for international peace and safety, it must first try to resolve the problem peacefully. In die past, the Security Council has acted as mediator or, in cases of armed conflict, proposed a cease-fire. The Council can also reinforce its decisions by enacting sanctions. Sanctions are a way for the Council to apply its decisions, constituting a step between a simple condemnation and armed intervention. Sanctions can include an arms embargo, trade and finance restrictions, the ceasing of air and sea contact, or diplomatic isolation. Furthermore, the council can also opt for measures that call for more people and material. Peacekeeping missions allow the Security Council to watch over the cease-fire and participate in the creation of conditions for peace. On a few occasions, the Security Council has authorized member States to use all the necessary’ means to keep the peace, including collective military action. General Indar Jit Rktye, the former president of the International Peace Academy who has......

Un China

...undoubtedly there is an intention on the part of Beijing to make good on its increase in relative power and the opportunities that a more centralized leadership under President Xi Jinping provides for articulating a clearer foreign policy message and more forward foreign policy behaviour. This article provides evidence in support of the argument that China has decided to adopt a more activist foreign policy. It focuses predominantly on China’s policy towards the United Nations as a way of demonstrating a new willingness to take decisions previously left in abeyance, and as an example of a policy area where the Chinese leadership believes it is showing a desire and an ability to contribute to global public goods. In particular, I explain here why the UN is favoured by China as a venue for displaying a more globalist stance, focusing on the UN’s institutional design and on China’s longstanding involvement in peace operations as the primary sources of the country’s increased activism in a multilateral venue of high importance to it. * 1 This article is a revised version of a paper completed while the author was the Dr Seaker Chan Visiting Scholar at the Center for Comparative Political Development Studies, School of International Relations and Public Affairs, Fudan University, Shanghai.

Women & Franco

...5. Why did the Franco regime seek to reverse gains made by Spanish women in the early twentieth century? Indisputably, General F. Franco’s dictatorship in a “Nationalist Spain” truncated both social and political progress made by women throughout the period of the early 1900s. In order to discuss the crucial motives for the totalitarian regime’s reversal of such developments, a brief historical background of European stances on the roles of women must firstly be examined. As established by H. Graham, attempts at preserving socio-cultural conservatism to uphold political ideologies during this era were geared primarily towards the reiteration of traditional gender roles in society. The influence of existent policies in a Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany at this time were, undoubtedly, of great influence on Franco’s regime. Earlier legislation enforcing this conservative perspective in Spain confirms such views, in that under these laws women could only conduct certain economic affairs, make purchases and sign contracts under supervision of a dominant husband - “el permiso marital” being required. This concept of subordination to men permeated Spanish society, restricting women to lives of exclusive domesticity. As ‘queen of the home’, the majority of middle and lower class women were uneducated illiterates, generally ignorant and uninvolved in political affairs and indoctrinated by traditions of Catholicism supremacy. However, several feminist organisations formed in the......
