INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM AND TELEVISION CHANNELS: OPERATION AND REGULATION OF BBC AND CNN DURING COVERAGE OF 9/11 AND 26/11 PART II

INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM AND TELEVISION CHANNELS: OPERATION AND REGULATION OF BBC AND CNN DURING COVERAGE OF 9/11 AND 26/11 PART I

ABSTRACT–

“Terrorism” is a term that cannot be given a stable definition. Or rather, it can, but to do so forestalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organizing ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing definitions, accounts and explanations of terrorism.

In proposed research which is divided is divided in…

On Democracy: Surpassing Borderlines

  • On Democracy: Surpassing Borderlines



I never had the chance to live in a non-democratic society. Back in the 2010's election, my eight year old self would be found singing along to the rhythm of candidatorial advertisement jingles. If somebody would ask me about my government preference way back, I would have questioned why our country has a Democratic type of government. Why not a monarchial one? With princesses, big gowns, and horses. I was very…

Democracy For a Prosperous Nation

Four a.m. Seated in front of the computer. I am just from bed, where I had been tossing and turning for hours, looking for sleep that was seriously evading me like the plague. This is not the first time. I should honestly sit it down and have a mature conversation. We can’t go into the new year with this dispute still ongoing. Anyway, maybe I should thank sleep for playing so hard to get because now, here I am, writing. Here I am sharing what’s on my mind with you, hoping that you…

Democracy: An End to Gender Discrimination

Glued to the television screen, I waited in anticipation for the 2016 U.S. presidential election results between Republican Party representative Donald Trump and Democratic Party representative Hillary Clinton.

Is it important to live in a democracy?

Chelsea Michta

Graduate Student, University of Cambridge

 

Democracy is premised on the normative notion that all people are equal in terms of their political rights.  This in turn stipulates that citizenship in a democracy confers on each person a set of enumerated rights and obligations that ultimately also shape a larger community of people imbued with shared values.  It is this aspect of democracy that makes it the…

There are two forms of government that is Monarch and Democratic. 

The difference between the two is that

     In democracy someone works according to your wish.

    Citizen don't vote to the bad leader and he or she can't win any election anymore.

The Ethics of Trade with China and Authoritarian Upgrading

Increased foreign investment and engagement is producing, not democratization, but "authoritarian upgrading," where selected reforms are designed to legitimize a softer authoritarianism. This presents an ethical dilemma for international trade. What direction will China, Uzbekistan, Russia, and other "upgraded authoritarian" states evolve towards in the coming decade?

Ethics & the U.S.-China Trade War, with Nikolas Gvosdev
