Business Ethics Across Cultures Article Review
February 24th, 2013
Egypt is a country that is in Africa that is the center for many of the Islamist movements that is going on right now in the Middle East. There is a movement that is going on right now that is called the piety movement it is based on some political implications that could come about that would bring about change. This change would affect the Egyptian Muslims in their traditions and to their Islamic law. The mosque movement came about a mere 25 years ago, this was in response to the idea about the modern structures of secular governance. This movement is to way to try and save the ethical way of business and living. This also goes for the teaching and studying of the Quran and the traditions that surround the country. There a lessons that are provided to some of these women that are able to make it. There is between 25 to sometimes around 500 women that will attend these meetings so they can learn more about the ethical issues that their country is facing as well as the many other topics that are happening.
The movement in Egypt and other parts of Africa is tied to Europe and the Business Ethics that surround the idea of doctors and Ob/GYN doctors that are offering to perform female genital mutilation (FGM) on young girls and adult women. There are more reports coming in each and every day from all around those countries about the FGM. There was a doctor in Europe that was going to offer a family of three young girls to do a FGM on them for starting at fifty pounds each. There is nothing ethical about this kind of behavior in any country but it happens each and every day. If the business that, that doctor was working for were to have found out that he made that offer to that family he would have lost his license to practice medicine. It is sad that we live in a world that still lets this happen to innocent young women and girls....
