EDITORIAL
The International Relations Department of the Piloto University of Colombia is constantly
working to strengthen cooperation and international integration bonds. This process gives
our institution an international and intercultural dimension that allows us to compete in the
global world.
In our development process as a Department, we included various strategies such as Workshops, Modules and International Summer Courses, through which we have achieved a high
recognition at national and international level.
Our 6th edition of the Newsletter shows the progress and achievements in internationalization that have taken place throughout the semester.

BUSINESS MACRO-SYSTEM
UPPER MAGDALENA BRANCH
TOURISTIC PRODUCTS DEVELOPMENT AND REGIONAL CHANGE
During the Second Meeting of Business
Macro-system, in the Upper Magdalena
branch, the Argentinian Ambassador in
Colombia, Celso Alejandro Jaque, talked
about his experience on economic and social transformation of Malargüe sector in
the province of Mendoza, which reduced
the unemployment rate in 32%.
The tourism strategy exposed by the Argentinian diplomat, focused on an action
plan that gathered different approaches:
art, nature, fishing, thermal therapies, fairs
and exhibitions, and cultural and scientific tourism, allowing a complex and fruitful
development for the city. It is important
to highlight that even before having
certain resources you must have a vision
and a clear horizon, in addition to an appropriate team that involves community,
employers and political representatives
in a working synergy, which optimizes the
achievement of resources. Business and
political will must be shown as real and
feasible for the project implementation
to be viable and to meet the needs of the
population to be benefited.
This plan, which began in late 1995 and
still in force today, has larger resorts such
as the Digital Planetarium and the Sports
Center, where various athletic championships of international stature were hosted. The inhabitants of Malargüe managed
to beat unemployment thanks to this policy that has a 50 year projection.

XIX COLOMBIAN SYMPOSIUM ON PAVEMENT
ENGINEERING: “PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT AND
ITS IMPACT ON SUSTAINABILITY”
The Colombian Symposium on Pavement Engineering established an important benchmark for the road development of the country, since it brought
together national and international experts to discuss topics of current interest.
The main central theme focused on the management of new pavement
based on new technologies for development and refinement of techniques
that include the use and maintenance of alternative materials, which take
into account the impact on the environment atmosphere. These technologies in turn are focused on minimizing the carbon footprint left by current
production methods.
The event was raised from a multidisciplinary approach, since it had a multisectoral team to handle this issue.

NEGOTIATING IN A GLOBALIZED WORLD
Pablo Barbará Gómez
International Professor
Spain
During the past 11th to 22nd November 2013, the Piloto University of Colombia
and its International Relations Department organized the course “Negotiating in a
globalized world”, in which I had the pleasure of collaborating.
This course examined different negotiation forms that take place in today’s world,
strongly determined by the phenomenon of globalization. International negotiations, especially those of economic and business nature, were studied and characterized, emphasizing the inherent cultural dimension of the negotiations that occur
in a different than usual context.
The course also addressed the various negotiator profiles existing in the world, analyzing the challenges of intercultural negotiation in a rigorous and not stereotyped
manner.
The course was divided into three sections, addressing subjects that are closely
related to each other, but must be analyzed differently.
page
The first section focused on the description of the globalization context and on
the analysis of basic notions of negotiation, including a thorough analysis of the
method of principled negotiation, founded by Harvard University. In this section, it
was discussed with the participants what would be the best way to address international negotiations and what the differences with negotiations taking place within
our borders would be. We have learned that not only academics have left useful
lessons on negotiating but also other classic authors who have written about power
relationships as Niccolo Machiavelli, among others.
The second section focused on intercultural negotiation and on understanding the
importance of the cultural dimension in all international business. We have seen
different perspectives on the influence of culture on negotiation, and delved into
the concept of culture through anthropology and sociology, in order to understand
how culture shapes our thinking and performance. We have also analyzed different
negotiator profiles both in the world and in Colombia.
9
The last section was dedicated to the Protocol from the perspective of the business
world. We seek to understand with this the importance of this aspect in international
negotiations as well as how to address the role of women in negotiations with
cultures other than ours.
At the end of the course, which has had a participatory approach based on discussion and interaction, which fundamental notions are we left with?
Perhaps the first idea is that globalization has radically altered at all levels the
way that business and contacts have been traditionally done, generating a great
geo-economic and geopolitical transformation. The world has become smaller due
to advances in technology, transport and the digital society, which has led to a growing rapprochement between the governments of the countries, public and private
institutions, businesses and traders, individuals and civil society as a whole.
Consequently, the international and intercultural negotiation is increasingly the
norm rather than the exception for a growing number of institutions, companies
and organizations.
Some consider that its influence should not be exaggerated, since the purpose that
unites partners in any business initiative is to do business, “Business is Business”
ranks in all major aspects of any negotiation.
Others consider the cultural aspects do have a major impact not only on the formal
aspects and rituals of negotiation, but also in the form of how to understand the ultimate purpose of a negotiation. Here, we have analyzed the work of Geert Hofstede
and his theory of the cultural dimensions.
Understanding cultural differences is therefore essential for the international negotiator. His or her ability to detect joint interests and common benchmarks to successfully carry out the negotiation depends on it.
Furthermore, we have consistently analyzed the issue of negotiator stereotypes
and how globalization is also affecting them. Thus, the course has taught that it
is not possible to claim that the interpretation of things revolves only around our
perspective. There are many others, and we must be aware that “the earth does not
revolve around us.”
The second idea we have learned in this course is that the general principles of
any negotiation can also be applied in the international trading with a business
nature. They are not different. International negotiation has added complexities and
specificities that come mainly from the context in which it occurs and the influence
of cultural factors. Therefore, the general method chosen should be applied when
negotiating beyond our borders, though making an international reading of the
method, i.e. adapting it to and interpreting it from the international and counterparty, which will likely come from another cultural context.
Finally, we study the International Protocol, whose ultimate goal is the coexistence,
i.e. that everyone feels respected and that the activities are applied not to create
problems or misunderstandings, but to resolve them.
Another central idea on which we worked is the one that states that the cultural
factor is what affects the international negotiation the most, although there are
many opinions on how culture really affects the negotiation.
I hope I have contributed for the course participants to face up to their international
negotiating experiences confidently and to obtain more effective results. Until next
time!

We understood that good knowledge of the Protocol helps us to act professionally
and naturally, and to use the necessary interpersonal skills in an appropriate manner, so that it results in a good working relationship and greater ease when doing
business.

FIRST INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR
ABOUT PROMOTING READING
The Reading Seminar was held in association with the
Embassy of Argentina and the International Relations
Department at the Piloto University of Colombia, with
an approach towards the eminently collective construction process, including integral processes and different
strategies.
Reading policies should be considered statal policies, in
order to convert us and those who are surrounded by the
best bridge between text and reader.

which issues such as urban growth and
the impact of urban regeneration in the
UK were discussed. It included the participation of students and professors of
the Architecture Program.
Moreover, due to his involvement in the
research “Sustainable Territorial Planning Methodology in contexts of physical and socioeconomic vulnerability
Cazucá, Soacha” led by architect Maria
Ximena Manrique, it paid a visit to the
studied territory in the research group
and participated in the recording of a radio program for Unipilotoradio, as part
of the disclosure of his researches along
with the team.
READING FOR PLEASURE
FIRST INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR ABOUT PROMOTING READING
Licenciado Facundo Mercadante
International Professor
Argentina
Our objective was not to subdue ourselves to objectives. We learned from the
first day that the premises were simple but compelling: give us a space within
the University to exercise freedom and wonder, to probe the passion and curiosity. How many colleges offer areas where students can confront themselves
as a human beings? Because this is what this seminar is about, of finding us
-playing- with questions that come to us to the bone, that explore the essence
and we may only respond in secret.
page
In our daily life, do people often ask us about what we love? So Mr. / Miss, what
causes you curiosity? We heard it all: “I’m intrigued to know what happens after
death”, “Are there aliens? “, “I am curious about the future”, “Why men are less
committed with love?”, “How did this person come to rule this country?”, “Why is
it that we remember what we remember?”, and “How is music made?” We found
some shared curiosities and knew that many poets, novelists, musicians are
intrigued and excited about the same things.
13
Of course, the seminar has a formal program that we fully complied, but the
basic interest was to awake the latent and wonderful need of walking new
trails on our reader path. Reader path? Sure, we all have a reader path. It begins
long before we know how to read, it begins with lullabies, childhood jokes,
tales from our grandma or our uncle, bedtime stories. Then we got to school
and started reading generally because it was mandatory, to acquire knowledge
and skills, which is fine but sometimes makes the arrival of new less academic
challenges difficult.
Waking up, we said, new trails in this path. And to “wake up” we need to realize
that we are a little asleep: we are slept with the television and media anesthesia, it wears our academic rigor out, it shapes the “good manners”. Our life
experience is reduced to waking up, having breakfast, getting on and off of
Transmilenio, studying, eating, sleeping. But then in the middle of all, we love,
we talk, we behold, we get angry, we reflect, we cry, we learn. We share. I mean
we experience, we live experiences. That is reading, neither more nor less: experience. If you are offered a wealth of experience, of new but close situations,
human experiences, would you reject them? There’s that book to hand. He is
waiting for you, take the time.
We talk about libraries, about the magnificent university and public libraries,
we visited and met the Luis Angel Arango Library (by the way, did you know
that UniPiloto has an institutional affiliation and therefore access to over two
million books, electronic resources, articles, etc.?). The library as a right, an essential public service as water and electricity. We also noticed that the library is
at home and that the library is us: we carry internal printed texts as tattoos in
the soul and heart. It is time to share, I think. So we gave space to storytelling,
to a sometimes underestimated reading: that of listening. We all talked and
listen. Stories, anecdotes, we even made up a story together. We also did a spontaneous writing exercise, very revealing.
Virginia Woolf used to say that the best advice for those who want to be born
as new readers is not to listen any advices. The reader path is an autonomous
path, own, not appropriable by others. This means that it does not require tolls,
page
we hate reading cops: “you must read this or read this”. We only suggest to put
small hydration and relaxation stalls, we open secret passages into the mountains or airports from which to take off.
In the Main Branch in Bogota we met Colombian and worldwide authors. We did
it by playing, we created a Literature World Cup, which the Latin American team
won (the other teams were Colombia, Argentina and Rest of World). In Girardot,
the seminar was condensed to almost four consecutive days, so the challenge
was to interact quickly, to know each other deeply and give us the confidence to
talk about everyone’s reader path, without shame or hypocrisy.
We intervened the street, interacted with others, whispered poetry to bystanders, as a gift for them and us. We read and we reviewed books that were supposed to be “for children”. This opened our poetic and playful space one more
time, we were surprised by the depth of illustrated books and symbols that
the stories bring, both from the rich Colombian tradition and from the Grimm
Brothers. We never stopped asking questions to ourselves.
We are all readers, yes sir. But, what kind of reader are we? There is everything:
novels reader, comic reader, graffiti reader, situations reader, songs reader, movies, gestures, facebook status reader. Fickle reader, poetry reader, restless reader,
academic texts reader, erotic books reader, lazy reader, daily reader. We can be
readers of various types at once. The idea is to recognize and to make a click,
allowing a change to adventure, encourage ourselves to find other possible
readings.
Underneath, playful questions became coexistence and community questions:
which is city that we want? Which people? Active, sparkling, supportive, critical,
imaginative, tolerant? Or passive, indolent citizens that give themselves to media dictates and the dominant discourses? Citizens who despise the difference?
Nobody said that reading makes us better, or that it is better than living. But
we are convinced that reading makes us more human and enriches our lives.

INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION AT PILOTO
UNIVERSITY OF COLOMBIA
Luisa Fernanda Pineda
International Cooperation Coordinator
The Piloto University of Colombia, through its International Relations Department,
is interested in having different elements from the International Cooperation and
from the Higher Education Internationalization processes, not only because of the
growing importance of these subjects in the universities, but also because of the
need of constant improvement of the university processes, to offer a quality service
to the students and to remain at the forefront of educational issues in Colombia.
It is for this reason that in late 2013, the International Relations Department initiated a planning process for CI activities. As a result, we have earned the Strategic Plan
for International Cooperation effective for the 2014 – 2018 period and it will be
reviewed at the end of each year to make adjustments, review indicators and modify
the work plan for each new period.
This document is the road map on the CI that the PUC will follow, with the main
objective to strengthen the interinstitutional linkages between the University and
its counterparts identified as: foreign academic institutions, cooperation agencies,
national and international government, and civil society and private organizations.
Major advances have been the Strategic Plan for incorporating participatory mechanisms
in the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the Plan through which
the academic community of the PUC may collaborate with CI processes, as well as getting a profit on mobility, curriculum internationalization, development of joint research
with other institutions, and cultural and scientific exchange. In this sense, elements for
accountability by the International Relations Department are also incorporated through
transparency of information and the development of appropriate management indicators
to monitor the progress of the four strategies contained in the Plan.
page
Another key component is to improve the communication mechanisms between the
Department, the academic community and partners, for which information systems
that allow classification and a better knowledge of information users are being developed, so that the data matches with scientific interests of each institution and
person included in our database. Likewise, it aims to deepen the level of cooperation
by the broader knowledge of international cooperation agencies that are present in
Colombia, for which you have the Manual for Accessing International Cooperation
issued by the Presidential Agency for International Cooperation-APC as a reference
consultation. This instrument will allow the CI offer from the PUC to various institutions interested in developing joint projects with the University.
Finally, the International Relations Department intends to take a more active participation in internationalization networks of higher education in Colombia, for which
it seeks to consolidate a leadership position and recognition among the institutions
that shape and assist in the implementation of joint projects at an interinstitutional and multidisciplinary level, expanding the various opportunities available
to students and professors to learn new cultures and increase knowledge through
research, the addition of other languages in the areas of training and knowledge
transfer between the University, private companies, governments and civil society
in general.
All in all, we can say that the development of the Strategic Plan for International
Cooperation of the Piloto University of Colombia is just one of the many activities
being conducted by the International Relations Department to improve the quality
of educational services offered to the community and makes part of a cluster of
projects hinged together, gestated from the policies of the University.
