  • Valuing dialogue and respect in research

    Valuing dialogue and respect in research

    One factor that motivates research in the intersections between communication and development is our willingness to contribute to social change. Buzzwords (Cornwall & Brock, 2005) such as “participation” and “empowerment” indicate scholarly intentions to contribute towards more just and egalitarian societies. It is certainly an admirable cause. However, what do we do if our actions in the field contradict our well-meaning intentions?

  • El paradójico desarrollo de la tecnología

    El paradójico desarrollo de la tecnología

    Los Estados están jugando un papel decisivo ya sea oponiéndose, propulsando o dirigiendo la innovación tecnológica. Por eso, en buena medida, la tecnología expresa la capacidad de una sociedad para propulsar el dominio tecnológico mediante las instituciones de la sociedad, incluido el Estado. Es importante recordar que la revolución tecnológica se originó y difundió, intencionalmente, en un período histórico de reestructuración global del capitalismo, y la revolución tecnológica fue una herramienta esencial.

  • Defining the borders of legitimate and illegitimate discourse

    Defining the borders of legitimate and illegitimate discourse

    When criticizing Israeli policies, one is often reminded that “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East”. There are many who argue about that definition of a democracy in the light of Israel’s control of millions of Palestinians under military law in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, with no right to vote for the government that effectively controls them. However, the following article focuses on the more democratic sides of Israel that this statement is based on – the way Israel treats its Jewish citizens (as opposed to the Palestinians).

  • Freedom of speech in crisis Europe

    Freedom of speech in crisis Europe

    “Media freedom and democracy are about people’s happiness” exclaims Gvozden Flego, a philosophy professor and member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) at a recent conference on Freedom of Expression. The discussion is intense and one of the most comprehensively organised conferences on the matter I have ever attended. The speakers raise structural, cultural and legal aspects of freedom of expression. The ultimate question of course always remains the same: What can we do?

  • Media barriers in Afghanistan

    Media barriers in Afghanistan

    Afghanistan once housed tourists from around the world intrigued by the Silk Road stories, the poetic and mystic culture, the majestic landscape and the hospitable people. Their experience in Afghanistan was frequently captured through journalism and photojournalism of the early 1900s. However, Afghanistan’s very own media culture was born during this same time with Seraj-ul-Akhbar being the country’s first newspaper, published on 11 January 1906.
