Questions related to Political Culture
I want to make a post-doc on the topic of political culture.
I want to know is there any facility to make a post-doc with a TUBİTAK scholarship at your mentor. I don’t demand any financial support from you. TUBİTAK is going to funded all my education and other expenses.
I will send my CV and work plan which are already prepared.
Whenever there is a paradigm shift because of changing technology, religion, politics, culture, etc., new concepts are brought into the language. And when there are no words to talk about these new concepts, then new words must enter the language. This PowerPoint gives examples of semantic gaps and the linguistic processes that are used to fill these semantic gaps: Borrowing, Loan Translation, Shift in Denotation or Connotation, Metaphorical Shift, Suffixation, Prefixation, Compounding, Clipping, Blending, Back Formation, Acronyming, Metathesis, Onomatopoeia, Reduplication, and Part of Speech Change. We also discuss “Sniglets.” Whenever we have a paradigm shift based on changing technology, religion, politics, or culture, how do we bring new words into the language to talk about the changes?
I am researching political and electoral violence and I need latest electoral violence theories propounded from 2011 to date because all the theories accessible to me are from 2010 and earlier and they will not be accepted by my institution.
It promotes tolerance and understanding above and beyond our political, cultural and religious differences, putting special emphasis on the defence of human rights, the protection of ethnic minorities and the most vulnerable groups, and the conservation of the environment.
I would like to know your opinion about the content of the civic competence. Thus, my main question can be divided in the following sub-questions:
1) How would you define civic competence?
2) Do the democracy require any civic competence in order to function properly?
3) In your are opinion on which political topics the citizens should have some kind of basic knowledge?
4) Are there levels of civic competence?
Thank you for your contribution!
Present humanity is based on application of S&T. Political and social framework provide a base to development of S&T. This framework is not so strong due to selfish nature of individuals in a community.
The other issue is that invertebrates and primitive organisms may be more successful in the changed climatic conditions in future due to their adaptability and immense reproduction rates.
Knowledge provides ability to change the environment at the place of changing own DNA and genes. How far humanity can be successful by changing (and damaging) the environment. Adaptability of human society is being ceased due to increasing dependency on medical facilities.
Can S&T sustain without strengthening political, cultural and ethical framework?
Unfortunately, managers in organizations are politicians before they are managersو They often think a bout chairmanship, not management.
There are also undesirable behavior patterns in politics, which are found in the management process.
Is it necessary for managers to change as governments change? Regardless of their merits?
what should we really do?
How to separate politics from management?
Globalization has made the entire world global village. this brought about free flow of trade, communication, political and cultural affinity. The fundamental is that it has enhance competition among counties. But the problem is that it has further polarized the world into the two, the highly developed nations and developing nation. iIt is obvious that the gap is becoming wider
Historically speaking, we say Winston Churchill, FDR, Charles De Gaulle, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Dr Sun Yat Sun, Mao, V.I. Lenin and the like have been good leaders. We do not get to talk about people in our times in the same tone. What qualities and attributes mark out a good leader? Are there some characteristics in 'good leaders' that we can say are universal and worthy of emulation by others?
PS: please do not take on any individual person in the political arena anywhere in the world. Let us discuss only the leadership qualities that they must have or should not have, from academic perspective.
I am thinking something like how unions move from striking against an employer to striking against the government.
Please notify if you think Imran Khan is a game changer in Pakistani politics?
And should political parties use social media sites as communication tool for politics?
Can the politicians of western democracies be really democratic? The apparatuses of power execution and public security are said to be states within the state. In the last consequence they conduct illegal actions against assumed enemies of the state, errors of justice and state murders included. Edgar Snowden had to flee from the USA to be able to object a violation of basic rights. In effect he had no right of democratic criticism in his own country.
One relatively gentle definition of "predatory" is "addicted to or characterized by a tendency to victimize or destroy others for one's own gain." Thus self-obsession would be typically present to the exclusion of empathy. That rather clearly describes the nature of predation in the animal world, in human terms.
The word "predatory" has a generally understood meaning of an effect that renders one entity subordinate to another, wherein actually being a meal for a predator is the most extreme case.
A word that pragmatically describes the following human activities effectively (that is, with useful effect) could be useful to focus constant and consistent attention on the general nature of harmful political (etc.) behaviors:
extremism, hate speech, rape, war-mongering, profiteering, corruption, slavery, discrimination, greed, theft, domination, terrorism, intimidation, usurpation, cannibalism, aggressive narcissism, fear-mongering, road-rage, trolling, pure callousness, compulsive lying, incitement, authoritarianism, chicanery, jingoism, hegemony,lusting for power, predatory lending, predatory pricing, malicious rhetoric, etc.
I really want to know any latest theories related to the causal relationships between increased exposure of international communication (e.g., overseas students, visiting professors) and democratisation process. Thanks.
I am looking for any (ethnographical, political, cultural, anthropological,...) information about this community in Switzerland, Liechenstein, Italy or Austria.
If I could find answers to my questions there, it would be perfect. My questions are:
- Are Walsers more like a separate ethnic group, or more just like an ethnic subgroup?
- How and to what extent did Walsers integrate into mainstream society?
- What are the main Walsers' traditions and what assists (or avoids) in their maintenance?
- What is the impact of government interventions in Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein to maintain (or loss) walsers' traditions?
I´m interested in collecting data from 2002 to 2012 on germans trust in government and in institutions as well.
The Eurobarometer provides a good amount of data on EU institutions but lacks (sometimes) of national government and parliament data.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Or in other words, in what way has it been reflected about the consequences of the role of electronic media in modern times to make receptors who don´t have direct access to the reality of things, recognize these realities?
My primary interest is to make a reflection of how electronic media produces information without taking into account location and territory, and how this affects the receptor in these locations or territories. Also, if information produced locally can be effective in contributing to the lives of the receptors, and to their agency too.
Taking into account that both Conservative parties and Islamist parties in Turkey highlight the role of Islam, how can we discern and contextualise them? Can we stress that Erdogan and AKP is inscribed politically and culturally on the path that inaugurated in Turkish politics by Menderes and its Democratic Party? Is AKP nowadays a more conservative or Islamist? Using the term conservative i exclude the far right nationalists of MHP.
I am currently researching this issue to prepare a paper to be delivered at the conference of the Canadian Political Science Association, in late May 2016 in Calgary.
Can you explain here a brief historical account.
According to my understanding this movement, critical thought, historical approach or critical school commenced in 1970 to amend power-based or elite based flaws at historical grounds (Especially after colonialism and emperialism, third world people found themselves lost. They were without history (i.e., without identity) of their own. I know, I am making here a mistake by using the fuzzy term third world but it is, for me and for most of the people, a general term to distinguish people of undeveloped country from the people of most advanced and powerful countries. Then from 1990, the term became a weapon, a tool, a methodology to voice the voiceless at academic, social, political, cultural etc grounds. Now, this multidisciplinary approach has no boundary and is applicable for all people marginalized in any country at any level.
How far am I correct? What is the difference between its initial objective and now its application in modern time?
E.g. How they interfere with other people's lives. The question is among others related to parties political culture and methods of communication.
Do you trust some specific…
--Newspapers (web based or printed)
--Radio or TV programs
--Social networking sites.
--Other Information Websites.
Do you prefer a mix of these sources?
I am teaching a political communication & Media Lobbying course to undergraduate students. Can anybody suggest me a good handbook on this course which covers both political communication and media lobbying.
How are we to best understand multiculturalism, and is it good or bad thing for each multi-ethnic country?
Though he applauds the encounters and broadening of the people of differing societies and cultural backgrounds as positive, Kenan Malik, a British intellectual of Indian background has recently offered the following criticism of what is called “political” or “state multiculturalism”
As a political process, however, multiculturalism means something very different. It describes a set of policies, the aim of which is to manage diversity by putting people into ethnic boxes, defining individual needs and rights by virtue of the boxes into which people are put, and using those boxes to shape public policy. It is a case, not for open borders and minds, but for the policing of borders, whether physical, cultural or imaginative.
Whether multiculturalism is a good or bad thing, Malik describes the division of opinion:
It's a question to which the answers have become increasingly polarised in recent years. For some, multiculturalism expresses the essence of a modern, liberal society. For others, it has helped create an anxious, fragmented nation.
what is the military culture of Iran (ways to achieve the strategic objectives, principles of training, behavior patterns, ethical codes). The second issue is the political culture or norms, beliefs and priorities.
I'm looking for a Europe-wide surveys that are similar to what we see in the Latinobarometer, Afrobarometer. In other words, questions on economic perceptions, vote intention and partisan id. The Eurobarometer is largely a EU-wide survey that lacks any national component. The EES is largely a survey on second-order EP elections that dont measure voting in first order elections. The CSES lacks proper questions on economic perception. They include a retrospective sociotropic question and a "improvement of standard of living question." I'm look for a cross-national survey in Europe that asks such questions as
1. If Presidential elections or (parliamentary election) were held this sunday for whom would you vote for?
2. In the last election, did you vote for the opposition or the incumbent?
3. In the last 12 months, how has your household economic situation changed?
4. In the last 12 months, how has the country's economic situation changed?
5. In the next 12 month, do you expect your household's economic situation to get...? (better, worse, etc)
6. In the next 12 months, do you expect the country's economic situation to get?
Perhaps Pope Francis could be enough understood as a sensible Jesuit in dialogue with up-to-date global social, economical, political and cultural happenings.
Can you cite specific example on how the in-group orientation affect the political system in the locality ? The Filipino values are significantly studied to strengthen the understanding of the society as the culture and tradition is now gradually changing its cultural perspectives because of the advent of science and technology including the use of internet as a means of social networking. The primordial existence of man is the life support of biological maintenance such as food that would change the perception and attitude in dealing with the ideas of respect, dignity, integrity as influenced by the existence of social influence and power exploited by the economic dimensions of in-group orientation. Therefore, the foremost concern of our society is survival that transcends the idea of kapit sa patalim just to save the mere existence of the collective group particularly in the depressed communities.
This study reflects the transitional analysis of the cultural concept of sakop that has been existed as part of the cultural life processes and structures in a given society. The cluster of values is related to in-group orientation on what is known as sakop. It has deeper meaning in social relationships in the concept of the extended family ties. Furthermore, the family worth brings the social analysis of the political power and authority relevant to the idea of sakop. The collective action encompasses the values of human respect, honor, integrity, compassion and etc.It must be noted that social and political relationships defined the group values of pakikipagkapwa, pakikitungo, pakikiramay, utang na loob and other sociological values reflected in our society.
Conference Paper The Integrative Analysis on the Political and Cultural Value...
Last decades of political life in Europe showed the gradual shift of many political parties to neo-liberal policies. From the other point of view the left very often are doing what right do, and the opposite - there is no any more clear left-right boundaries which existed in seventies-eighties of last century. What is the future for political spectrum in Europe?
The last decades have witnessed the development and implementation of several early warning systems initiatives to help communities in the developing world reduce their vulnerability to extreme weather events and long-term climatic changes. These initiatives have been supported by governments, NGOs and international organizations. However, research has already shown that many of the root causes of vulnerability to these events are linked to complex socioeconomic, political and cultural aspects, entrenched in processes of marginalization, lack of resources, assets and power. So, in this sense, what are the limits of early warning systems and the risks of using them as major components of climate change adaptation strategies? Does anyone have literature to suggest on early warning systems and climate change adaptation in this context?
Modernization and Postmodernization presents an interesting and quite cogent theory about the congruity of change in economic, social, political and cultural factors, and about the path of development.
How we can adapt the curriculum to this kind of needs and especially for social development?
I still don't see any other viable and meaningful alternative to economic liberalism (democracy) except socialist democratic alternative that emerged in parts of Latin America in recent years. Without it, we are permanently damned to discuss the non-politics of the apolitical politicians. Those who disagree will do me a favor.
Bureaucratic clientelism is a category of clientelism, where political parties and state authorities try to create more posts into the state to give them to their followers. I really appreciate if you can give some paper with empirical approach to this subject.
Are they guidelines that depicts the process of recovering? Is there or isn't there a need to build up in a post-conflict area? If so, are there specific regulations one should follow in the action to move forward and 'preserve' the significance of the post-conflict site?
As a novice in the field of political culture, this thinking has lead me to this question. There are various backgrounds for understanding political culture. For some, it is characterised more on the societies' wealth (and value change) (Inglehart, Welzel) while others speak about a social capital (Putnam), etc. But in certain circumstances it could be difficult to see a mechanism through which these approaches operate. If institutions are ineffective to punish somebody for breaking the law civil society should put these institutions under pressure and force them to punish offender. The problem is when civil society mobilizes. When it finds the situation as necessary for improvement. Therefore my question is whether there exists some concept of political culture which deals with such a problem.
One could notice that many countries' social economic status grows up when science practice is highlighted in their policies; whereas the evolution of others decreases once science is no more looked as priority.
Differently from many countries who do not know what science they need and how to operate with it, exhibiting chaotic socioeconomic development. However few countries think that science is not useful for their progress, those show likely archaic behavior.
However some countries think that science should be democratized for fast growing up of human knowledge and best human progress (they are thankful) while others think that they should confine their science into their frontiers.
In the same time some of them deny science to some countries and set them under control through lobbying, squeeze and/or predation of their intellectual and scientific matter.
And few of them do influence political leaderships of some countries via arrangement or concession of particular intellectual or scientific stuff.
So how science could be free of political ideologies and ego schemes, and be neutral with political power ships for worldwide progress??
In general, there are two big perspectives about political culture: functionalist and cultural. Almond and Verba are the representatives of the first one. But I don't know enough theorists of the second one. Could anybody suggest theorists of the cultural perspective on political culture? Thanks.
What would be the first references that come to your mind regarding the topic of the political uses of pictures (caricatures, drawings, photographs, engravings) in 19th and 20th centuries mobilizations? As a French researcher, I'd be curious to know your must-reads.
