International Terrorism:Role ,Responsibility And Operation Of Media Channles, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

"Terrorism" is a term that cannot be given a stable defintion. Or rather, it can, but to do so forstalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organising ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing defintions, accounts and explanations of terrorism. Which term is used in any particular context is inextricably tied to judgemements about the legitimacy of the action in question and of the political system against which it is directed ...


A Primary Human Challenge, Carroy U. Ferguson Apr 2008

A Primary Human Challenge, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

We may ask why, at both the individual and collective levels, it has seemed so difficult for us to choose to evolve our human games with Joy. There is no one answer for such a question, for each of us has the gift of free will. I will suggest, however, that built into our human games is what I call a primary human challenge. That primary human challenge is a dynamic tension, flowing from our creative urge for the freedom “to be” who we really are in our current physical form, and simultaneously to embrace our responsibility for our Being-ness.

Relaciones Con Los Medios En Gobiernos Locales, Augusto Reina, Santiago Rossi

Augusto Reina

Una gran cantidad de problemas cotidianos son resueltos por los gobiernos locales y la ciudadanía cada vez demanda mayores respuestas. En espacios de gobierno territorialmente reducidos los hechos son más “visibles”, esto hace que los reclamos sean inmediatos y constantes.

Ante las expectativas y el requerimiento de información que se desprenden de los gobiernos es necesario construir instituciones y redes que se especialicen en la comunicación de la gestión de gobierno. Una vez que un gobierno tenga analizadas sus políticas y definidos los mensajes, el canal óptimo para su difusión lo encontramos en los medios de comunicación.

En este capítulo ...


El Canto De Las Sirenas. Algunas Consideraciones Sobre La Comunicación De Gobierno, Augusto Reina Jan 2008

El Canto De Las Sirenas. Algunas Consideraciones Sobre La Comunicación De Gobierno, Augusto Reina

Augusto Reina

En la actualidad las estrategias de comunicación política no se agotan al finalizar las campañas electorales, sino que son imprescindibles para la comunicación del gobierno. Los diferentes niveles de gobierno están ante el desafío de crear capacidades estatales para la comunicación de sus acciones con miras a reconstituir el vínculo entre la sociedad y la política. El trabajo se articula sobre tres ejes principales: la sociedad moderna, que es el sujeto de comunicación; las prácticas de los medios de comunicación a través de los que se comunica y las estrategias de la comunicación política. En una primera instancia, se analiza ...


China- Tibet Conflict, Allen Gnanam Dec 2007

China- Tibet Conflict, Allen Gnanam

Allen Gnanam

China- Tibet tensions are continually growing, as Tibetans are protesting for total independence from China, despite condemnation from their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, who is only seeking a sense of autonomy for Tibet (Sinder, 2008). As Tibetan protests are becoming violent and aggressive, the Dalai Lama has also threatened to resign as Tibet’s government in exile (Sinder, 2008), however, his rhetoric is not being exposed to the Tibetan people, due to government censorship in China. Therefore the Dalai Lama, an exiled institutional entrepreneur, has to find new methods that will enable his influential message, to be received by ...


The Soft Power And Persuasion Of Translations In The War On Terror: Words And Wisdom In The Transformation Of Legal Systems, Donald J. Kochan Dec 2007

The Soft Power And Persuasion Of Translations In The War On Terror: Words And Wisdom In The Transformation Of Legal Systems, Donald J. Kochan

Donald J. Kochan

The power of words is the power of persuasion. The exportation of the foundational legal principles that helped form the American republic can serve as instrumental "soft power" tools in the war on terror. Efforts promoting projects like the Arabic Book Program are important vehicles to cross-cultural and cross-lingual international relations. This Article argues that an arsenal of words can be as, or more, powerful than an arsenal of artillery. The West has much to offer, but the rest of the world needs to be able to read it without getting lost in translation. Providing linguistic access to the documents ...
