...CHARLES MARTIN IN UGANDA Purpose How operations differ from country to country due to different laws and regulations internationally. Discussion Internationally other countries have different laws. In this article they discuss how using different ways to approach a company internationally works, by comparing Charles Marin and James Green. Martin had a taste of the Ugandan culture because he went to African after he graduated college for the Peace Corps where as James Green did not have a taste of the African culture and had more of a US based culture and was not open to both as much as Martin was. Question 1: Describe Ugandan cultural attributes that might affect the operations of a foreign company doing business there. Comment: For the most part business in Uganda would be very different. They have a much different working style then here in the United States. Uganda has a few cultural attributes that might affect operations of a foreign company operating in Uganda. Starting off language gets in the way because Uganda is a country that has various types of religions and languages. As indicated in the article on page two “English is the official language, but many people speak only an indigenous language—mainly Bantu or Nilotic languages.” This may result in miscommunication because the company may not be able to interconnect with the citizens of the area. Also religion results in numerous types of controversies around the world and Uganda has many different......

Uganda

...hatreds of adults -- Olara Otunnu In the country of Uganda lies terror in the minds of many children. Many people are unaware of the inhumane and wretched experiences that happen in Uganda. Families cannot sleep peacefully at night because of unwanted attacks from rebels who torture and abduct their children. These children are then forced to be placed into an army, comprised mostly of children in an environment that radically changes their soul. Like the quote from Olara Otunnu, children are used as objects to carry forth actions that certain adults feel towards their civilization. If one is fortunate enough to escape or rescued then they must deal with the cruel effects of reintegrating into society. Research confirms that it is immoral to have child soldiers in Uganda because war-related experiences inhibit a healthy growth as a one suffers from psychological and physical trauma. Known to be one of the worse humanitarian crises since World War II, the epidemic in Uganda began over twenty years ago. This came about due to a man name Joseph Kony and his ideology of establishing a government based on the Ten Commandments (Benter 1). He believed with a large enough army, he would be able to overthrow the current system residing in Uganda today. One usually associates the idea of an army with adults; men and women who voluntary commit to serve their country for a certain amount of time. Kony believed he represented the people of Uganda, the Alcholi people, but his support......

I have been working there for just over four years and have had the pleasure and opportunity to work and lead a partnership between a UK and an African library. The partnership is specifically between the Albert Cook Medical School Library, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda and Kent Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Libraries (formally South Thames Library and Information Service). It has existed informally since about 1994. This was made formal in September 2000, under the guidance of the registered charity Partners in Health Information (PHI). The aim of the partnership is to encourage the free flow of health related knowledge between nations. For further details see: http://www.surreyandsussex.nhs.uk/lis/documents/Ugandaleaflet.pdf During the span of this partnership a number of visits have been made to UK and to Uganda. I have been specifically involved with the visit that took place in January 2005 to set up the website for the Albert Cook and more recently in March 2009 to update the site.

Uganda

...Uganda Health Profile The country of Uganda also known as the Republic of Uganda gained its Independence from Britain in 1962. Since then there has been constant political, social, and economic struggle. A group known as the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) has caused a great deal of turmoil and forced several peoples to flee the country. There is still conflict to this day but the 35 million residents of this developing country are making efforts toward improving their country and their lives. The population growth rate is 3.32% with a birth rate of 44.5 per 1, 000 greatly exceeding the death rate of 11.26 per 1,000. An average citizens life expectancy is a low 53 years (Central Intelligence Agency, 2013). These statistics are indicators that Uganda is currently in a stage of development. The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) are helping move this country to a healthier more developed state. The citizens of Uganda have been taking great strides to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and improve their country by 2015. The first Millennium Development Goal is to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. Uganda has made the greatest progresses in achieving this goal. From 1992 to 1999 the poverty head count fell from 56% to 35%. It has since fallen to 31% and nearing the goal of 25% or half by 2015. The second target of the first goal, achieving full and productive employment, has not made large improvement but from 2003-2005 there was a 3% increase in employed personas as...

How would you describe the respective attributes of Martin and Green: ethnocentric, polycentric or geocentric? What factors do you suspect of having influenced their respective attitudes? • Charles Martin attitude is geocentric because of his handling of the project and the knowledge of the country needs. James Green on the other hand is ethnocentric because he overlooks the important cultural factors. 3. Who was right Green or Martin about the controversial actions in facilitating the project? How might things have turned out if Martin’s had not been a member of the project team? • Martin’s was right about the controversial actions in facilitating the project. Without him the business would operate slowly and over budget. 4. In the next phase of the project should HG employ someone whose main function is that of liaison between its corporate culture and the culture of its host country?

Icc's Intervention in Northern Uganda

...The ICC’s Intervention in Northern Uganda: Beyond the Simplicity of Peace vs. Justice Paper by David Lanz The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy May 2007 The ICC in Northern Uganda David Lanz Introduction The creation of the International Criminal Court (ICC) via the entry into force of the Rome Statute on July 1st 2002 sparked enthusiasm. For M. Cherif Bassiouni, “The ICC combines humanistic values and policy considerations essential for the attainment of the goals of justice, redress and prevention as well as the need for the restoration of world order and world peace.”1 Ironically, five years after its creation, the Court has been accused of being an impediment to what it was created to promote: peace. With regards to Northern Uganda, Bassiouni remarks that the ICC indictments against five senior members of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), “was received negatively by some individuals involved in the Ugandan peace process,” who “have argued that it has undercut their efforts to advance peace initiatives.”2 The claim that the ICC’s intervention in Northern Uganda obstructs peace seems obvious. It is expressed in its simplicity by Father Carlos Rodriguez: “nobody can convince a rebel leader to come to the negotiating table and at the same time tell him that when the war ends he will be brought to trial.”3 This paper examines the criticism that the ICC obstructs peace in Northern Uganda. It aims to go beyond the simplistic framework of peace vs. justice,......

Uganda's area is 91,134 square miles which makes it approximately twice the size of Pennsylvania (http://geography.howstuffworks.com). The country is largely situated on a plateau that drops from about 5,000 feet in the south to approximately 3,000 feet in the north and is rimmed by mountains old volcanoes and lakes. Uganda is a well-watered country that contains many lakes and rivers. Water makes up nearly one-fifth of the total area of Uganda. The main body of water is Lake Victoria which is the second largest fresh water lake in the world. It is located in southeastern Uganda and about half of the entire lake lies in Ugandan territory (www.eoearth.org).

Uganda

...US AND ITS INSATIABLE DESIRE FOR OIL US IS SENDING ITS TROOPS WHEN KONY ALREADY GONE There are several reasons to believe that US troops are hunting for oil in Uganda and not for Joseph Kony. Kony is the leader of the rebel group LRA (Lord Resistance Army). They had been notorious for kidnapping children from villages, forcing the boys to become soldiers and using girls as sex slaves. In October 2011, the US government sent a hundred soldiers to Uganda with the excuse of helping these children escape from the revolutionary group’s abuse. The problem is, the LRA been gone from Uganda for more than six years. Nowadays, there seems to be a tendency from the US to invade countries like Iraq, Libya and now Uganda; countries with political problems, high corruption and poverty. Countries that are usually rich in oil. To illustrate, the US army invaded Iraq on March 18, 2003. This country had the world’s fourth-largest oil reserves according to The World Factbook by CIA (cia.gov, Internet). The official reason for the attack was to disarm Sadam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. Nine years have passed and they found only basic weapons. Many believe that they were really hunting oil. The fact that Exxon, Mobil, Shell, Total, BP, Chevron and a number of smaller oil companies got no-bid millionaire contracts to service Iraq’s largest fields seems to support this. Before US invasion since 1973, these companies were obligated to leave the country excluding them from the......

Charles Martin in Uganda Case Answers

...Charles Martin in Uganda: What to Do When a Manager Goes Native? Q1: Business in Uganda typically moves slowly; however, paying tips to people in advance can speed the process. Because unemployment is high and hiring is generally done through word-of-mouth, contacts typically recommended their relatives, who are usually hired. Further, although the majority of Uganda’s population is Christian, tribal religions believe that many natural sites (including that of the proposed dam) possess spiritual qualities and are sacred. Q2: HG’s corporate philosophy embraces the idea that although secular, HG’s business activities should embody strong Christian values. Further, subordinates should be given full responsibility in making and implementing decisions, but they should also be held accountable for their results. By choosing to live in a middle-class Ugandan neighborhood while shunning the expatriate community, by paying extra for service, by hiring recommended relatives, and by paying fees and participating in tribal ceremonies, Martin exhibited a more polycentric (autonomous) attitude, while Green seemed to be more geocentric in his approach. While Martin was more concerned about his effectiveness with respect to his assignment in Uganda, Green was more concerned with corporate-level issues. Q 3: Martin was right for his controversial actions in facilitating the project due to his good understanding of Ugandan culture that gave him an edge to perform the......
