  • Einführung in die Interkulturelle Wirtschaftskommunikation

Im Zuge der Globalisierung nimmt der Austausch zwischen verschiedenen Kulturen immer mehr zu. Gerade die Wirtschaft spielt dabei eine Vorreiterrolle. Längst wissen wir auch, daß die interkulturelle Kommunikation nicht immer reibungslos klappt, daß im Gegenteil unzählige Fallen lauern. Wir wollen uns in dieser Veranstaltung dem Problem theoretisch nähern und grundsätzliche Begriffe hinterfragen: Kultur, Interkultur, Wahrnehmung, Stereotyp, Kommunikation usw.

  • Gesellschaftliche Veränderungen und außerparlamentarische Bewegungen in Südeuropa

Impulse zur Veränderung unserer Gesellschaften kommen manchmal aus den politischen Parteien und aus den Parlamenten. Häufig aber auch aus dem außerparlamentarischen Raum, aus der Zivilgesellschaft. Im Mai 68 wurden viele zivilgesellschaftliche Bewegungen angestoßen, so die Frauenbewegung, die Friedensbewegung oder die Öko-Bewegung. Heute sprechen wir über die Wutbürger, über Pegida, Podemos in Spanien und und und. Der Text “Empört Euch!” von Stéphane Hessel wurde binnen weniger Monate eine Million Mal verkauft. Wir wollen uns in diesem Semester diese Bewegungen in Frankreich, Italien, Spanien und Deutschland genauer anschauen und sehen, welche Wirkungen von ihnen ausgehen.

  • Economy and Society in Developing and Emerging Countries

The seminar deals with issues of development economics, taking a closer look at political, institutional and societal processes that characterize economies and societies in developing and emerging countries. Based on country cases studies it discusses macroeconomic factors and aspects of material well-being as well as the role of ethnicity, history, gender norms and the state/political system.

  • International Business Relations

The seminar will examine bilateral and multilateral economic relations, and how they affect regional/global alliances, globalisation and the social and economic well-being of nations. International business and increased international trade often results in improved international relations, but it can also lead to disputes between countries (e.g. disagreements on tariffs, trade wars etc.). The seminar encompasses economic considerations as well as the role of politics, history and culture.

About 200 years after the beginning of their independence process, the states of Latin America appear to be facing another step of emancipation.

The focus lies on international, regional and economic cooperation.
