(인터뷰) “2007년도에 수주한 GM Toledo 프로젝트의 납품시점에 발생한 GM의 신용위기는 한화테크엠에게도 큰 위기였습니다. 파산이 확실시 되는 고객에게 기술지원을 하고, 제품을 납품했다가는 대금을 지급받지 못할 수도 있다는 우려가 있었지만 신용과 의리의 한화인으로 그들을 외면할 수는 없었습니다. 뉴GM이 출범하고 정상화의 길로 접어들면서 하이브리드와 관련된 새로운 투자가 시작되면서 그들은 위기의 순간에서 자신들을 냉정하게 버리지 않았던 한화테크엠을 높이 평가하며 한화테크엠은 GM의 새로운 프로젝트 수주가능성을 높여가고 있습니다.”

Translation - English
(Interview) GM’s financial crisis hit right as we were completing the orders that we received in 2007 for GM’s Toledo factory and caused alarm. Giving technological support to a client who was surely on the way to bankruptcy meant that we may not be able to receive due compensation, but being a trustworthy and loyal Hanwha, we could not ignore their plight. When GM was back on the road to the apex with the launch of New GM and new investment opportunities with the hybrid, they regarded Hanwha Tech M highly for not abandoning them. We have thus increased our chances for obtaining orders for GM’s new projects.

둘째, 드라마는 새로운 사회문화적 현상을 형성시키는 발원지라는 점이다. 대중적 유행이나 인기, 스타의 탄생은 대부분 드라마가 방송됨으로써 초래되는 것이다. 가령 '겨울연가'라는 드라마가 없었더라면, 한류스타인 '배용준'의 존재는 부각되지 못했을 것이다. 또한 드라마에 등장한 대사와 행동이 유행이 되고 드라마 음악이 히트가 되며 음식, 차량, 패션, 가구, 헤어스타일, 악세사리, 촬영지 등이 덩달아 주목을 받게 된다. 아울러 드라마가 사회적 메시지를 전달하거나 논의를 불러일으키는 계기를 제공하기도 한다. 드라마에서 그려지는 고부간의 갈등, 불륜, 가부장제도, 동성애, 청년실업 등은 사회적 메시지나 이슈가 되곤 한다. 현재 인기리에 방송되고 있는 '꽃보다 남자'에서 고교생의 음주신이나 키스신 등은 사회적 논란을 촉발시키고 있다. 드라마는 기존 문화나 질서를 반영하거나 재해석기도 하고 종종 새로운 문화나 질서를 만들어내기도 한다.

Second, as the source and creator of socio-cultural phenomena, TV dramas give to birth stars and to popular trends and fads. For instance, without the TV drama “Winter Sonata,” the Korean star Bae Yong-Jun would not have acquired such symbolic icon status. Further, TV dramas popularize certain gestures, quotes, and theme songs, and put a spotlight on food, cars, fashion, furniture, hairstyle, accessories, and filming locations. They project social messages and open discussions. Conflicts with in-laws, love affairs, patriarchy, homosexuality, and youth unemployment can become acute social issues. The social controversy sparked by high school drinking scenes or kissing scenes in the popular drama “Boys Over Flowers” is one example. TV dramas reflect existing cultural and social norms and often create new ones.

Engager une recherche sur la participation politique des jeunes femmes en Tunisie nous met d’emblée face à un paradoxe, lié aux particularismes du contexte sociopolitique tunisien. En effet, la scène politique tunisienne se présente, en amont, comme étant propice à une participation importante des femmes en général et des jeunes en particulier. L’émancipation de la femme à tous les niveaux est un enjeu central dans la politique de l’Etat et a été depuis l’indépendance le caractère distinctif de la Tunisie par rapport aux autres pays arabes. Les droits politiques, civiques et sociaux des femmes en Tunisie sont garantis. Seules quelques discriminations au niveau du statut personnel subsistent encore tel que l’inégalité successorale. Par ailleurs, le pouvoir en place affiche une volonté politique dans le sens de la promotion de la participation politique des femmes (à travers l’adoption de mesure positives tel que les quotas au sein du parti au pouvoir le Rassemblement Constitutionnel Démocratique le RCD). En aval, la Tunisie semble se caractériser par le désengagement populaire et l’apathie des masses envers la politique (Hibou : 2006/ Camau et Geisser : 2003).
Translation - English
In researching the political participation of young Tunisian women, we face a paradox within the Tunisian sociopolitical landscape. On the one hand, the Tunisian political atmosphere seems favorable to the political participation of women, especially for young women. Emancipation of the woman at all levels has important stakes in the political agenda of the State and it has always been, since Tunisian independence, a distinctive character of the country in comparison to other Arab countries. In Tunisia, political, civic and social rights are guaranteed and instances of discriminatory legislation are few, as in the inheritance clause of the personal status code. In addition, the party in power – the Constitutional Democratic Rally or RCD, also demonstrates political will to promote women’s political participation through the adoption of positive measures such as the quota system. On the other hand, Tunisia seems to be characterized by public disengagement and apathy when it comes to politics (Hibou: 2006 / Camau et Geisser: 2003).
