ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is an analysis of the weaknesses in the Zambian media laws that infringe on the principles of press freedom and freedom of expression, within the realm of the Social Responsibility and Libertarian theories of a free press. The book also identifies the role played by the Zambian state in media regulation. Despite numerous promises from the Zambian government to review media laws, they have not fulfilled their promises. As a result, the media in Zambia continues to operate under a difficult media legislative environment and consequently the growth of the media has been hampered.

In Development as Freedom Amartya Sen explains how in a world of unprecedented increase in overall opulence millions of people living in the Third World are still unfree. Even if they are not technically slaves, they are denied elementary freedoms and remain imprisoned in one way or another by economic poverty, social deprivation, political tyranny or cultural authoritarianism. The main purpose of development is to spread freedom and its 'thousand charms' to theunfree citizens.Freedom, Sen persuasively argues, is at once the ultimate goal of social and economic arrangements and the most efficient means of realizing general welfare. Social institutions like markets, political parties, legislatures, the judiciary, and the media contribute to development by enhancing individual freedom and are in turn sustained by social values. Values, institutions, development, and freedom are all closely interrelated, and Sen links them together in an elegant analytical framework.By asking 'What is the relation between our collective economic wealth and our individual ability to live as we would like?' and by incorporating individual freedom as a social commitment into his analysis Sen allows economics once again, as it did in the time of Adam Smith, to address the socialbasis of individual well-being and freedom.

Freedom's Razored Edge
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Long cherished in America and sought after around the world, the freedom of the press is under attack. With the advent of the "war on terror," war over the air waves has broken out between producers of the media, the government and terrorists themselves.The events of 9/11 have resulted in unprecedented legislation, police measures and military initiatives dramatically impacting the complex relationship between freedom of expression, state security and terror in the US. In Turkey, the legal, moral and social consequences of a thirty-year war on terror have also impacted media roles in covering terror, but very differently owing to a long history of state control of the media. This study takes a comparative approach to examine the uncomfortable tug-of-war between freedom and regulation of the press in the United States and Turkey, from the past to the present. Bringing to light the complex mechanisms at work behind the scenes of media manipulation, silencing and propaganda, this book will be useful for media scholars, as well as the lay reader interested in how the balance of freedom between state security, terrorism and freedom of expression is indeed a war fought on a razor s edge.

Social media bolstering democracy?
54,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The growing influence of social media platforms is unstoppably altering the practice of political activism and democratic struggles in the world. Following Facebook, YouTube and Twitter support to revolutions in North Africa and the Middle East there is a growing conviction that social media sustains democratization processes. However, evidence to support these assertions remain inadequate. Observations indicate that social media can entrench authoritarianism and dictatorship. This book demonstrates that social media is a double-edged sword that can entrench authoritarianism and dictatorship or support democratic struggles. While social media can facilitate citizen journalism, political education, recruitment and mobilisation and allow freedom of expression at a fast rate than the state could reciprocate, authoritarian regimes can also use social media to conduct surveillance, monitor dissenters, distribute propaganda, manipulate public opinion, and create enclaves of extremists and suicidal political proletarians. This book informs and educates citizens, political activists and analysts, civil society actors and political parties about the benefits and detriments of social media
