U.S. PR Pros Offer Solutions For Denmark Boycott Crisis


Much of the recent news coverage of the Islamic world's protests of cartoons published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten have focused on the Muslim perceptions of blasphemy in depicting the Prophet Muhammad in comic situations, and in the resulting demonstrations which saw the loss of the life and destruction of embassies across the Islamic world. Less attention, though, has been given to the corporate side of the story. According to the BBC, the governments of 15 predominantly Muslim countries have announced boycotts of all Danish goods. The BBC also reports that within two weeks of the beginning of the global demonstrations earlier this month, nearly 200 jobs have been lost in Denmark because of the disruption of commerce within the Islamic world. If the boycott continues through the year, Denmark's economy stands to lose almost $2.
