FICHE SAS - INTERNATIONALISATION – SAS 2017

INTERNATIONALIZATION

  • What does this mean?
  • Globalization - « Mondialisation »

WHY SHOULD WE BE INTERESTED IN THE WORLD?

  • Opportunities – for business, culture, and diversity in our lives
  • Need to communicate with other peoples
  • Sell ourselves and our ideas to people of other languages and cultures
  • We need to communicate with them
  • In a way that they hear us,
  • In a way that they understand what we’re saying
  • In the context of their culture

WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND OTHERS

This means we need to

  • Know their language
  • Understand their culture
  • Understand how they communicate

WHATEVER OUR DIFFERENCES, WE NEED TO BE ETHICAL

  • Be honest – with yourself and with everyone else
  • Fulfill your obligations and responsibilities
  • Treat other people the way you would like to be treated

You should remember a phrase attributed to Benjamin Disraeli and other British statesmen and popularized in the U.S. by Mark Twain:

"There are three kinds of lies:  Lies, damned lies, and statistics."

It’s not the statisticians who lie.  It’s usually people who manipulate statistics to bolster or support their arguments in favor of their own point of view.
