Book Summary : Vietnam Integration

Vietnam Integration is the second volume of the Vietnam Ethics Series, published by Vietnam Hoc Institute, in collaboration with Globethics. It is my reflections on how Vietnamese people cope with change, facing globalisation. Education is the key, but not all. Ethics and Values are essential to our development as citizens of the World.

The integration of Vietnamese into the global economy requires the knowledge of our traditions and values and the capacity to interact with other cultures.

To understand the outer world for survival, we need to find a common shared values.

It is important for the development of learners as a child and a future parent, and future citizens of the World to understand that we are part of Humanity as a whole. Our existence is only meaningful if we progress along with other nations to make the World a better place to live.

Social studies are relevant to understand how societies work.

History, Anthropology, Ethnology, Sociology, Geography and Political studies help to understand the evolution of one particular society through time and space. 

Faith and Spirituality are the foundation of all good societies. Applied ethics are developed through the code of conduct or code of ethics by organisations according to their own culture. As Vietnamese, we must be aware of our cultural traditions and values to live a meaningful life and perpetuate the human species, through interacting with the world around us.

The underlying theme of this second volume is about facing changes by preserving Asian values and traditions.

Education has played a crucial role in the Vietnamese modernisation process of the economy throughout history.
