The Shepherd Borat?

Zoran Kurelić ; Faculty of Political Science, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia

Fulltext: pdf (269 KB), English, Pages 204 – 216

Author argues that it would be a mistake to treat Slavoj Žižek’s political philosophy
as if it were a performance act. Žižek is a neo-Leninist writer, a political-
philosophical shepherd, but he is not the Shepherd Borat. Kurelić criticizes
and rejects Žižek’s reinterpretation of Benjamins’s ‘divine violence’
as theoretically incorrect and politically useless. By comparing Žižek’s and
Arendt’s understanding of the French Revolution Kurelić wants to show why
the ‘divine violence’ recommended by Žižek would for Arendt be an ‘element
of totalitarianism’. He points out that the political success of socialist
and communist ideas was always derived from the vision of the better future,
not from the promises of unrestrained revenge and political violence. Žižek’s
attempt to reconcile the terror of the Jacobins with his modern revolutionary
neo-Leninism is a political nonstarter.

Comparing Western Democratic Leverage: From Tirana to Tripoli

Mieczysław Boduszyński ; Pomona College, Claremont, U.S.A. Fulltext: pdf (275 KB), English, Pages 189 – 203

Abstracts What are the generic sildenafil conditions puscifer v is for viagra under which external actors positively influence democratization? A growing literature analyzes the external dimension of democratization, focusing, for instance, on the power of EU enlargement conditionality to spur democratic reform in the post-communist world, and especially the cialisonline-onlinebestrx Balkans. This paper compares the effect of Western leverage over transitions in the Balkans and the Arab Spring countries. Western democratic leverage is a function of external power and internal vulnerability to external democratizing pressure, but it is also related to factors such as Western political will, the influence of countervailing external powers, and nationalist resistance. The article demonstrates that on all of these dimensions, Western democratic leverage over the Arab Spring countries is significantly lower than it has been over the Balkan states, and thus that the prospects for democratization in states such as Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia are generic viagra online dimmer.

In Search for More: The Importance of Income Inequality in Conflict Formation and Its Policy Implications

Nemanja Džuverović ; Faculty of Political Science, University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia Aleksandar Milošević ; Faculty of Political Science, online viagra University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia Fulltext: pdf (275 KB), English, Pages 173 – 186

Abstracts The paper analyzes the online pharmacy phentermine global rise in with-in countries inequality, with special emphasis on the sharp increase in inequality beginning in the 1980s, as a result of the neoliberal policy reforms that were designed to prevent economic stagnation and decline by reiterating the importance of financial deregulation and trade liberalisation. Following this worldwide trend, the paper employs different theoretical frameworks in order to explain how a further increase in income inequality could lead to the formation of violent conflict. By using frustration, identity and opportunity factors, the authors attempt to illustrate how the “search for more” is transformed into violence, followed by material and human casualties. Finally, the paper analyzes different sildenafil citrate instruments and tadalafil online policies that could reduce inequality, e.g. tax and transfer systems (the impact on income distribution), labour market policies (the trade-off between high minimal wage and employment reduction) and institutions and education policies (through strengthening public education, in particular). An adequate policy response to rising inequality, according to the authors, should include all of these complementary measures.

Convergence Journalism and the Public Interest: The Case of Croatian Public Radio Television (HRT)

Tena Perišin ; Faculty of Political Science, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia

Fulltext: pdf (469 KB), English, Pages 155 – 172

This text deals with the transformation of Croatia’s public service, Croatian
Radio Television in the context of the integrated media and building a converged
newsroom. I compare the newsroom workflow at HRT with the daily
routines of its strongest commercial competitor – Nova TV and the good practices
of selected public service companies. At the end of 2012 the public service
media provider, Croatian Radio Television (HRT) published a new set
of rules and regulations and announced its reorganisation. The new HRT is
primarily looking for a new approach to the media and wishes to show that a
public service is no longer just radio and television, but a joint effort which
acts as new media. According to the new restructuring plan, the greatest challenge
is to establish the convergent integrated newsroom and consequently the
establishment of a single news media service. In view of its resources: technical,
human and financial, but also in view of the modes of financing (TV
licence fees and advertisements), it is naturally expected for Croatian Radio
Television not only to become a role model media that provides accurate, authentic
information in the public interest, but also to endorse innovation and
the use of new technologies. An enormous effort has to be undertaken to prove
that the convergence is not only about the quantity of journalistic content, but
also could bring quality. HRT is at the beginning of the changing process, yet
its goals and vision have not been communicated effectively. Most of the HRT
staff has not embraced the new vision, nor the professional, economic, and
logic argumentation that stands behind it. Most of them are sceptical and this
can slow down the speed of integration. It seems that for HRT, it is not enough
just to have a restructuring plan in place, but also a well thought out plan of
how to break down the resistance of its employees and motivate them to abandon
old habits. There is a lot to be done to create a working environment that
could fulfil the proclaimed mission to produce high-quality, trusted and varied
journalism (media content) that serves the society and democracy.
