The Eu's "Sanctions Paradox", Portela, Clara Oct 2007

The Eu's "Sanctions Paradox", Portela, Clara

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

The forthcoming Summit meeting between the European Union (EU) and Africa next December will be the first event of this kind in the past seven years. However, the row over the participation of Zimbabwe’s President, Robert Mugabe, is casting a shadow over the upcoming event: A number of African states have threatened to boycott the meeting if Zimbabwe's leader is not invited, while the British government has indicated that it will not attend the meeting if he does. At the root of this row is an “EU sanction”: a visa ban prohibiting the entry into EU territory to ...

Politics Of Appearances: Religion, Law, And The Press In Morocco, A Souaiaia Jul 2007

Politics Of Appearances: Religion, Law, And The Press In Morocco, A Souaiaia

Ahmed E SOUAIAIA

Since the last several years of the life of King Hassan II, Morocco slowly moved from authoritarian rule to a managed democracy. As a result of this gradual political liberalization, religious groups as well as secular ones formed political parties. Islamists have already won seats in the parliament and they are expected to gain nearly half the number of seats in the coming elections. Equally significant is the increased presence of human rights and non-government organizations and the emergence of independent and party-affiliated newspapers and other media outlets. In this article, I focus on the prospects of seeing a free ...


Private Sector Influence In The International Telecommunication Union, Patricia K. Mccormick Jul 2007

Private Sector Influence In The International Telecommunication Union, Patricia K. Mccormick

Communication Faculty Research Publications

This paper aims to examine the influence of private corporations in the tripartite structure of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU): Telecommunications Standardization, Radiocommunication, and Telecommunications Development. The paper finds that, in the standardization sector, power has been effectively transferred from nation states to the private corporate sector since the approval process now enables standards to be approved by members of the study group that developed them, which is essentially the private sector. In the radiocommunication sector, the private sector continues to conduct much of the requisite technical work, but national governments are ultimately the decision makers and, further, it is ...


Globalizing Terrorism And The Internet, Francis A. Beer, G. Robert Boynton Jun 2007

Globalizing Terrorism And The Internet, Francis A. Beer, G. Robert Boynton

Political Science Faculty Contributions

The war of the decade is the war on terror. It is a war fought as surely in the public domain of communication and culture as on other battlefields. News organizations that aspire to a global audience constitute this public domain and bring it to the internet. They write and broadcast on the internet because it is their infrastructure for reaching a global audience. This paper assesses how this war is playing itself out in the globalizing media.


The South Korean Kwangju Uprising Of 1980: Through The Eyes Of The American Media, Matthew Brehe Apr 2007

The South Korean Kwangju Uprising Of 1980: Through The Eyes Of The American Media, Matthew Brehe

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

This thesis reviews the history of the American-Korean relationship from the end of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War through the rise of Chun Doo-hwan. Special emphasis is placed on the Kwangju Uprising as a watershed moment in American-Korean relations. While a great deal has already been written on the American government’s response to Kwangju, little is available on the general American public's response. Though this thesis does not claim to answer this very general question, it does examine public news coverage of major media sources in the United States, including newspapers such as ...


The Electronic Ballot Box : Class, Age And Racial Bias On The Internet., Jason Gainous, Kevin M. Wagner Apr 2007

The Electronic Ballot Box : Class, Age And Racial Bias On The Internet., Jason Gainous, Kevin M. Wagner

Faculty Scholarship

This research creates a theoretical framework for understanding the effect of Internet voting on the electorate. Based on standard Downsian rational choice voting theory, we claim that Internet voting lowers the cost of voting for certain voting demographics based upon race, age, and income.We further contend that this electoral advantage may crystallize the growing turnout disparity be-tween demographic groups. The theory is tested using Bayesian inferential methods with data from the Internet turnout in the 2000 Arizona Democratic Presidential Primary merged with demographic data obtained from the 2000 Census. Our findings lend support for the theory that the Internet ...


Picture Framing: Images Of War, Protest, And Flags On The Aljazeera In Arabic Website, Francis A. Beer, G. Robert Boynton Mar 2007

Picture Framing: Images Of War, Protest, And Flags On The Aljazeera In Arabic Website, Francis A. Beer, G. Robert Boynton

Political Science Faculty Contributions

War and protest are major components of the daily news. "If it bleeds, it leads" is a central axiom of news broadcasting. This paper examines the way that one globalizing news network uses images to frame stories about war and protest. Individualistic images of soldiers and weapons; death, destruction and suffering present important visual themes. At the same time, flag images invoke more communal identities. We examine such images from war and protest news stories in Arabic editions of Aljazeera websites during 20052006.

Broadband Deployment To Rural America: The Foundation Of American Innovation In The Digital Age, Don E. Reeve Jan 2007

Broadband Deployment To Rural America: The Foundation Of American Innovation In The Digital Age, Don E. Reeve

Don E Reeve Jr.

This note is a focused discussion of the importance of rural broadband inclusion in the scheme of national broadband deployment through an examination of Presidential Candidate Senator Hillary Clinton’s proposed broadband policies. With the rise of the global digital marketplace, the significance of broadband deployment to underserved communities not only rest on the benefits that broadband service provides but also on the potential damage non-inclusion can cause to our nation’s economic and institutional stability. This truth is the catalyst behind the prominence of broadband, and in particular rural broadband inclusion, in the current presidential campaigns. Accordingly, this note ...


Venezuela In The Times Of Chavez: A Study On Media, Charisma, And Social Polarization, Jorge Capetillo-Ponce Jan 2007

Venezuela In The Times Of Chavez: A Study On Media, Charisma, And Social Polarization, Jorge Capetillo-Ponce

Sociology Faculty Publication Series

My main objective in this study is to deepen the reader's understanding of Venezuela's ongoing socio-political conflict by focusing on the struggle for control over one of the key agents of mobilization and politicization in the country: the media outlets, and particularly television. My methodology strives to interweave the chronological record of events with analysis of the equally relevant theoretical, institutional, political, economic, and cultural components that helped to create those events. Central to my presentation is its analysis of the decline of Venezuela's two traditional parties and the emergence of a charismatic and populist form of ...

Us Media And Foreign Policy Making: The Case Study Of The Us Media Coverage On Taiwan, Zhuo Sun Jan 2007

Us Media And Foreign Policy Making: The Case Study Of The Us Media Coverage On Taiwan, Zhuo Sun

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

How does the American press view Taiwan? It is my contention that in foreign policy, the press supports the government, and therefore, the US press echoes the US government. The acknowledgment of the media's political linkage provides a foundation for discussions on the relationship between the media and policy making. In order to answer the question of role of the press in foreign policy making in US with respect to Taiwan, there are three sub-questions I wish to examine: (1) what was American foreign policy toward Taiwan between the years of 1995-2005? (2) What was the attitude of the ...
