Dissertação de mestrado em Gestão de Recursos Humanos; In Vietnam, graduate employees have entered the labor market with temporary contracts of employment and precarious employment conditions. The psychological contract is currently one of the most interesting research topics; nevertheless this concept is virtually unknown among those responsible for human resources management in Vietnam. Thus, this study was conducted to identify the psychological contract that characterizes the employees with a temporary employment contract, and to describe this reality in the context of Vietnam. The objective of this study is therefore to understand what type of psychological contract is held by Vietnamese employees, with a university degree, working as temporary employees, and to understand how they deal with the broken promises from their employer. The empirical study uses a quantitative methodology. Thus, questionnaire surveys were applied to employees in Ho Chi Minh City, during the month of March 2012. The questionnaire was conducted online and to participate in the research, respondents had to satisfy two criteria: have experience as employees on temporary or short-term contract, and an education level equal or superior to a degree. A total of 106 questionnaires were received. The questionnaire collected information on the expectations held by respondents as to the employment relationship...

The National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study (NVVRS) researchers reported that 30.9% of all men who served in that conflict developed posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) even though only about 15% had been assigned to combat units. Scholars, mainly historians, have questioned the accuracy of the PTSD prevalence rate. The purpose of this article is to evaluate the merits of several hypotheses adduced to explain the high apparent PTSD prevalence in the NVVRS. Empirical and conceptual analysis suggests that malingering is unlikely to account for many cases. Also, deployment to Vietnam in the absence of exposure to classic traumatic stressors is likewise unlikely to account for many cases. There are three plausible explanations for the high prevalence rate of PTSD in the NVVRS. First, DSM-III-R PTSD criteria, used in the NVVRS, did not require that symptoms produce impairment. Accordingly, some PTSD-positive cases may actually have been leading productive lives, despite occasional nightmares, or other stress responses. Second, some men assigned to non-combat duty (e.g., medics) may have been exposed to PTSD-inducing stressors. Third, some respondents may have invoked the Vietnam-PTSD narrative to make sense of postwar psychological difficulties having diverse causes unrelated to their military service.; Psychology

L’utilisation d’antimicrobiens chez les animaux de consommation est une source de préoccupation importante pour la santé publique à travers le monde en raison de ses impacts potentiels sur l’émergence de micro-organismes résistants aux antimicrobiens et sur la présence de résidus antimicrobiens néfastes dans la viande. Cependant, dans les pays en développement, peu de données sont disponibles sur les pratiques d’utilisation des antimicrobiens à la ferme. Par conséquent, une étude épidémiologique transversale a été menée de juin à août 2011 dans des élevages de poulets de chair situés dans le sud du Vietnam, ayant pour objectifs de décrire la prévalence d’utilisation des antimicrobiens ajoutés à l’eau de boisson ou aux aliments à la ferme, et de tester les associations entre les caractéristiques des fermes et la non-conformité avec les périodes de retrait recommandés sur l’étiquette des produits. Un échantillon d’accommodement de 70 fermes a été sélectionné. Les propriétaires des fermes ont été interrogés en personne afin de compléter un questionnaire sur les caractéristiques des fermes et les pratiques d’utilisation d’antimicrobiens. Au cours des 6 mois précédant les entrevues...

Corporate governance (CG) success stories in Vietnam are part of the International Finance Corporation’s ongoing efforts to raise greater awareness of the merits of CG. These success stories in Vietnam can serve as a guiding light for the immediate benefit and long-term value of CG to corporate development. The Law on Enterprise 2005, implemented in July 2006, marked the first introduction of a formal legal framework on CG in Vietnam. CG practice in Vietnam is expected to undergo sweeping changes when the revised Law on Enterprise (LOE) 2014 comes into effect on 1st July 2015. The revised LOE 2014 ensures independence of the Board of Directors, seeks to eliminate conflict of interest, and to improve accountability as part of Vietnamese government’s drive to ensure better CG.

Using the Survey of Living Conditions in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar of India and the second round of the Vietnam Living Standards Survey, this paper examines whether and to what extent rural consumption inequality of the poor differs in the two countries. While these two countries have experienced significant growth since the early 1990s, they have different institutional arrangements. As a result, the reforms that they have undertaken could have different impact on the poor. The Shapley decomposition results suggest that not only is average consumption expenditure per capita higher in rural Vietnam than in rural India, but also the distribution is more equitable. Land ownership and education structure are found to be the most important contributing factors of consumption inequality for the rural poor. However, the importance of these contributing factors differs. Land ownership (age structure) turns out to be the most important factor for India (Vietnam). Education is an important factor common to the poor in both countries. Policies to ensure more equal access to land and education hold the key to address consumption inequality for the poor.

What practical issues can arise when doing business in Vietnam? How is Vietnam adapting to the demands of the market economy? In particular, how does a knowledge of Vietnamese business culture, and history, help to clear up misunderstandings – especially involving relations between foreign business people and representatives from Vietnamese business and government? Does the Vietnamese experience have a broader value in the Asian region, where numerous different societies have been seeking a way to engage vigorously in international commerce – yet without losing touch with their own ethical foundations? ... ¶ This volume presents case study material relating to business in Vietnam. It outlines real issues and problems that have arisen – and then seeks to provide a cultural and historical context in which to understand them, and perhaps even solve them.; The research was undertaken in a cooperative project between Australian National University researchers and the St. James Ethics Centre, and received funding from the Australian Research Council. The St. James Ethics Centre helped to establish both the directions of the Project and a most valuable cooperative arrangement with the Vietnamese Ministry of Trade in Hanoi.; no

As a result of the economic reforms that were introduced in Vietnam in 1986, the country has grown economically. However, due to a bias toward development policies which have been mainly concentrated in urban areas, the economic gap between rural and urban areas has rapidly widened over time. More job opportunities and better living conditions in the city, as well as low productivity in agriculture, have caused people to move to the major cities. Consequently, rural to urban migration has become one of the dominant flows of internal migration in the country in recent years. This migration stream not only has increased in scale but also in its complexity. Particularly, the age of the migrants has become younger as many young people, especially females, become involved in this flow. Moreover, this migration flow has become less selective in terms of education as both more and less educated people migrate. Also, not only the rich but the poor take part in this movement. This thesis considers the determinants of moving and the experiences of young migrants to Ho Chi Minh City in terms of their economic, social and cultural adjustment in order to provide deep insights into the lives of young people when they migrate. This thesis has used the migration model of Scharping (1997) as the theoretical framework to investigate the decision to move as well as their living experiences in the city. A multiple method approach has been used to the study as both quantitative and qualitative data were analysed. Quantitative data such as secondary data from censuses and data from large-scale surveys at the national and the city levels and primary data from the author’s survey with 300 young migrants were applied. Qualitative data from 25 in-depth interviews with young migrants...

This thesis examines the impacts of financial development on economic activities in Vietnam at both the macro and the micro level in three core chapters. The first core chapter examines the role of financial development in growth and sources of growth in Vietnam by using the provincial panel data. It shows that financial development has a positive influence on the efficiency of using savings, on the quantity and quality of investment, on productivity, and hence growth. It also finds that there is an indirect impact of financial development on growth mainly through increasing the quality of foreign direct investment rather than the quantity. The following chapter analyses the determinants of household financial development and its role in economic activities of Vietnamese households by using the Household Data Survey. It suggests that the social relationship, location, fixed assets, household size, education, age and Kinh group are the key determinants of household financial development. Moreover, financial development contributes to household income through improving the level of savings and investment, labour productivity and reducing the problem of asymmetric information. Financial development is positively related to household welfare. The final core chapter looks at the impacts of financial development on firm performance in Vietnam by using the Firm Data Survey. It suggests that around 80.7% of Vietnamese firms lie between 0% and 20% in the efficiency scores derived from the DEA technique for 1...

This thesis examines the link between trade liberalization and firm productivity in Vietnam. In the thesis, the relationship between exporting activity and firm productivity in Vietnam is also examined. Chapter 2 gives an overview of Vietnam’s economy from the pre-reform period to the reform process that was introduced in 1986. Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 introduce the related theoretical and empirical literature. Chapter 5 examines the relationship between trade liberalization and firm productivity in Vietnam, using micro-level data of the Vietnamese manufacturing firms from 2000 to 2003. The results given in the study show that a decrease in output tariffs and input tariffs increases firm productivity in Vietnam, implying that trade liberalization has a positive impact on firm productivity levels and economic growth in Vietnam. The results given in the study are confirmed in both fixed-effects and first-differences models. The study also employs the instrumental variable method to control for the possible endogeneity between productivity and trade liberalization. Chapter 6 examines the relationship between the firm’s decision to export and firm-specific characteristics in Vietnam by using the Vietnamese manufacturing and services firm data. The study also examines the country-of-origin effects of foreign investment on a firm’s export decision. The empirical results given in this study support the evidence of the positive effects of firm productivity on a firm’s export decision...

This thesis examines the role of communist special operations forces during the Vietnam War and the relevancy of the lessons learned from these units. The United States military, specifically Army Special Forces, Rangers, and Navy SEALS, were not the only forces capable of conducting successful special operations during the conflict. The People's Army of Vietnam also had a highly organized, well trained, and well equipped organization capable of carrying out special operations. This organization was the sapper arm, and it was composed of three separate types of units. The Urban Sapper was concerned with intelligence gathering, terrorism, assassination, and special operations in the large urban areas such as Saigon and Hue. The Naval Sapper was responsible for attacking shipping, bridges, and bases located near waterways. The Field Sapper conducted operations against deployed US and South Vietnamese troops, trained other communist troops as sappers, and gave the communist leadership an elite force for lightning raids. The sapper force had certain operational principles, organizational constructs, and functional methods that set it apart from any other communist military element used during the Vietnam War.

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; This thesis examines how globalization has affected Vietnam's view and treatment of religious institutions. In a larger context, it argues that the conditions of globalization foster increased liberalism and the latent development of civil society. The implications of globalization on religion in Vietnam are explored through a case study of the Catholic Church in Vietnam from 1975 to 2004. The Catholic Church is examined during two different periods: during autarky from 1975 to the Doi Moi reforms in 1986, and during international interdependence from 1987 to 2004. Isolated from international norms and pressures during its period of autarky, Vietnam suppressed, rigidly controlled, and severely restricted the Catholic Church. As Vietnam entered its present period of global integration and interdependency, Vietnam's view and treatment of the Catholic Church improved: suppression lessened, controls eased, and many restrictions lifted. The thesis concludes that in order to foster religious freedom and build civil society, policy makers should implement policies that engage rather than isolate. Engagement policies tend to increase a country's degree of global interdependency and integration with the world economy and community. As the level of interdependency increases...

Globalisation is a multidimensional phenomenon that at times seems to be used to describe all aspects of modern life. Simply put, "globalisation" is global integration. Definitions of globalisation are associated with an amalgamation of global economic, social and political integration, in practice with an emphasis on the characteristics derived from economic integration. Economists, politicians and welfare groups alike emphasise the tangible benefits that globalisation has, or the benefits it potentially holds. Running in parallel, however, are voices of dissent. These movements of dissent are as multi dimensional as globalisation itself. How then can something so widely viewed as positive have such vociferous dissent? To answer this question, two very different 'poster children' of globalisation were compared: Vietnam and Australia. Vietnam has used globalisation as a tool to promote a higher development status, and Australia is a Western capitalist country that has used the global environment to advance the national interests and wealth of the state. Analysis was concentrated on the two countries' economies during their global integration reformation periods. Australia and Vietnam were chosen as case studies due to their diversity...

Rioting in the Central Highlands over forced population resettlements while in the Mekong Delta increasing pollution and reduced water flows destroy fish stocks and reduced rice yields result in a food shortage for the millions of residents dependent on the Mekong for their survival. Meanwhile surging demand for oil is heightening tension over the Spratly Islands between Vietnam and China in a relationship already strained as a result of reduced flows down the Mekong because of Chinese dams in Yunan Province. While the prospects for state failure and resource wars are remote, a failure to address spiralling resource demand, coupled with dwindling supply, could lead to the above scenario occurring in Southeast Asia in the future. Tensions over resources such as water and energy are increasing as a result of burgeoning regional and global demand for such resources, while at the same time supply is increasingly restricted. In Vietnam demand for the water resources of the Mekong River is growing at the same time that supply is being restricted by the construction of dams upstream and pollution is leading to declining water quality, essentially destroying the productive capacity of the river resources. The Vietnamese government faces serious questions about its ability to deal with a situation that is growing in complexity and scope with inadequate environmental safeguards contributing to a problem that the Vietnamese government has show a reluctance to deal with. Growing domestic demand for energy is also leading to shortages of supply and creating demand the development of new sources. A heavy reliance on hydroelectricity is being countered by moves to expand the generation of electricity using coal and gas...

El tráfico de personas especialmente el de mujeres para la explotación sexual en la región del Gran Mekong es un hecho que está afectando a la situación interna de los países, circunstancia que genera la necesidad de crear marcos de cooperación entre los gobiernos y las agencias de la ONU como mecanismo para tratar de dar solución al problema. Algunos países de la región como Tailandia, Camboya, Myanmar y Vietnam han iniciado este proceso como medida de prevención buscando así un mayor control judicial y laboral al igual que evitar una mayor violación de derechos humanos. Por esta razón Vietnam ha aprovechando las iniciativa de la ONU a través de sus agencias (OIT, UNODC y UNIAP) para emprender una lucha contra este problema y al mismo tiempo integrarse con los países de la región por que es a través de esto que se pueden lograr mayores resultados y beneficios. La cooperación internacional se ha convertido en uno de los mecanismos más utilizados por los estados para ayudar a darle solución a los problemas que no han podido resolver por ellos mismos. Este mecanismo ha permitido al gobierno vietnamita desarrollar algunas medidas contra el tráfico de mujeres para la explotación sexual.

La presente investigación tiene como objetivo explicar la influencia de la construcción de identidad cultural vietnamita en la Guerra de Independencia de Vietnam entre 1946 y 1954. Se argumenta que la construcción de identidad cultural justificó, promovió y legitimó la guerra de independencia como instrumento político ya que –en tanto proceso relacional– generó durante la colonización francesa prácticas de diferenciación fundamentadas en la reivindicación de los valores, tradiciones, costumbres, creencias y símbolos vietnamitas en torno a la resistencia. Ello propició una ruptura en las relaciones políticas imperantes, lo que condujo a la búsqueda de un nuevo orden social basado en la autodeterminación. Se utiliza una metodología de tipo cualitativa, fundamentada en el análisis documental e historiográfico.; This research aims to explain the influence of the construction of Vietnamese cultural identity in the Vietnam War of Independence between 1946 and 1954. It argues that the construction of cultural identity justified, promoted and legitimized the war of independence as political instrument because –as it is a relational process–, it generated during the French colonization differentiation practices grounded on values...

In his Dispatches, Michael Herr quotes the gonzo photojournalist Tim Page: "Take the glamour out of war! I mean, how the bloody hell can you do that?[...] Ohhhh, war is good for you, you can't take the glamour out of that. It's like trying to take the glamour out of sex, trying to take the glamour out of the Rolling Stones." This dissertation is in essence an exploration of Page's question, examining how popular media during the American conflict in Indochina first removed and then restored the glamour of war. For most of its history, the United States has been defined by a certain level of militarism, a glamorizing of the process of regeneration through violence reflected in this quotation, but the late 1960s and early 1970s saw a challenging of this warrior ethos; this challenge was reversed by the 1980s, when American militarism was taken to a new, paramilitary, level. In this project, I propose that this oscillation in the association of masculinity and violence was directly linked to popular media's depiction of the Vietnam war and of the soldiers who fought it. American society is haunted by Vietnam, not just because it was the first war the US lost (as the cliché would have it), but because of the ways in which popular culture presented the war to Americans: in particular...

This dissertation deals with the history and memory of the Border War with China in contemporary Vietnam. Due to its particularity as a war between two neighboring socialist countries in Cold War Asia, the Border War has been a sensitive topic in Vietnam. While political sensitivity regarding the national past derives largely from the Party-State, the history and memory of the war has permeated Vietnamese society. The war's legacy can be seen in anti-China sentiments that, in the globalized neoliberal order, appear to be reviving alongside post-Cold War nationalism. The Border War against China represented an important nationalist turn for Vietnam. At the same time, the traumatic breakdown of the socialist fraternity cultivated anxiety over domestic and international relations. The recent territorial dispute over the South China Sea, between Vietnam and China, has recalled the history and memory of the war in 1979. The growing anti-China sentiment in Vietnam also interpellates the war as a near future.

As an anthropological approach to the history and memory of war, this dissertation addresses five primary questions: 1) how the historyscape of Vietnam's past has been shifted through politics on the Border War; 2) how the memoryscape involving the Border War has been configured as national and local experience; 3) how the Border War has shaped the politics of ethnic minorities in a border province; 4) why the borderscape in Vietnam constantly affects the politics of the nation-state in the globalized world order; and 5) why the border markets and trade activities have been a realm of competing instantiations of post-Cold War nationalism and global neoliberalism.

Kaufman, Stuart J.; This dissertation compares and contrasts the Vietnam War (from the founding of the Vietnamese first republic in 1955 until the Tet Offensive in 1968) and the civil war in Cambodia (1979-91) in order to draw insights for counterinsurgency theory. The counterinsurgent in Vietnam was not successful because it could not effectively implement its political program, which prevented it from mobilizing enough committed people to fight in order to defend the regime. On the other hand, the revolutionary organization implemented its political program well and received a tremendous amount of external support. The counterinsurgent in Cambodia, on the other hand, was victorious in 1991 due to three factors: an appealing and effectively implemented political program, cohesive military organization, and the use of a hybrid army which was predominantly composed of territorial forces. Using the lessons from the civil war in Cambodia, this dissertation provides insights into the complexity of civil war, the dynamics of hybrid warfare, and the challenges facing a revolutionary organization which struggles to become an effective conventional army. This dissertation argues that a properly organized territorial army can complement the regular units very well...

This paper plots the recent changes in the uses of public space in Hanoi, Vietnam. It is argued that the economic and social changes in contemporary Vietnam have paved the way for a dramatic transformation in the ways in which streets, pavements and markets are experienced and imagined by the populace. The efflorescence of individual mobility, street-trading and public crowding around certain popular events has led to the emergence of a distinct public sphere, one which is not immune from state control and censure but which is a flagrant rebuttal of the state's appeal. The immediate struggles over space herald a new discursive arena for the contest over Vietnamese national imagery as represented in cultural heritage and public space, memorials and state-controlled events which the public are rapidly deserting. The paper concludes by suggesting that the everyday cultural practices that have created a bustling streetlife in urban Vietnam will inevitably provide the vitality and spectacle for the destabilisation of state control in a struggle for meanings in public space.
