The Millennial Generation: Implications for the Intelligence and Policy Communities

The Millennial Generation: Implications for the Intelligence and Policy Communities | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
In 2015, for the first time, millennials outnumbered baby boomers as the largest generational segment of the U.S. population. This report describes how the intelligence community (IC) must engage millennials across multiple segments to succeed in the future: millennials as intelligence clients, employees, and partners and as members of the public. The authors explore how the perspectives and experiences of millennials falling into each segment are relevant to IC functions and missions. Millennials in each segment may perceive intelligence differently from previous generations, which may influence whether and how they partner and engage with the IC; such decisions will affect future intelligence missions. This report provides an understanding of areas in which intelligence agencies may benefit from further study.

The Russian “Firehose of Falsehood” Propaganda Model

Since its 2008 incursion into Georgia (if not before), there has been a remarkable evolution in Russia’s approach to propaganda. This new approach was on full display during the country’s 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula. It continues to be demonstrated in support of ongoing conflicts in Ukraine and Syria and in pursuit of nefarious and long-term goals in Russia’s “near abroad” and against NATO allies

Social Media as a Communication Strategy: Content Analysis of Top Nonprofit Foundations’ Micro-blogs in China

Social Media as a Communication Strategy: Content Analysis of Top Nonprofit Foundations’ Micro-blogs in China | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
As Web 2.0 has become a trend, an increasing number of nonprofit foundations in China have started to utilize social media for strategic communication. Based on a quantitative content analysis, this study examines how social media, more specifically Sina Weibo, was used by the top 300 nonprofit public-fundraising foundations in China to advance their missions. Message strategy and dialogic communication strategy used to build and maintain organization-public relationships were identified. The result shows that top nonprofit foundations in China mainly relied on Sina Weibo to disseminate information, promoting issues and activities as well as calling for help. Two-way communication process and dialogic loops between foundations and audience were revealed. Audio, video, emotional appeals, dialogic, and interactive features have not been fully utilized, although micro-blog posts with certain multimedia and dialogic/interactive features were significantly more likely to be commented, shared, and liked. The implications of the findings are discussed.

Under the flag of the caliphate: On the function of visual frames in video messages of the “Islamic State”

Under the flag of the caliphate: On the function of visual frames in video messages of the “Islamic State” | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
Ever since the proclamation of a caliphate by the so-called “Islamic State” in June 2014, the strategic communication of the terrorist organization has become the subject of public and scientific interest. A focal point of discussion lies at the skillful use of social networks by the “Islamic State”. So far, research has focused primarily on quantitative aspects of agenda setting and has neglected the visual character of terror communication and the specific functions of visuals. The article deals with a selection of video messages of the “Islamic State” that address life in the IS-capital of al-Raqqah. Based on a visual frame analysis the article discusses central topics and visual frames and questions their importance for further research on strategic terrorist communication.

How social media can distort and misinform when communicating science

How social media can distort and misinform when communicating science | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
When news breaks – whether the story of a disease outbreak, a terrorist attack or a natural disaster – people increasingly turn to the internet and social media. Individuals use Twitter and Facebook as primary sources for news and information. Social media platforms – including Reddit, Wikipedia and other emerging outlets such as Snapchat – are distinct from traditional broadcast and print media. But they’ve become powerful tools for communicating rapidly and without intermediary gatekeepers, like editors.

Kremlin trolls are engaged in massive anti-Ukrainian propaganda in Poland | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
Kremlin “trolls” have launched a massive campaign to discredit Ukraine and Ukrainians in the Polish Internet space. Polish analysts note that an unprecedented wave of anti-Ukrainian propaganda on the Web first appeared in 2013, shortly after the Maidan protests began in Kyiv. In order to convince the Poles that Ukrainians are their bitter enemies, the Internet trolls are repeating the views of the current Kremlin authorities hundreds of thousands of times.

China: Who draws the party line? | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
THE nondescript glazed-brick building at 5 West Chang’an Avenue, near Tiananmen Square, gives no hint of what happens inside. No brass plaque proclaims its purpose. In an office around the corner, a dog-eared card says the reception of the Propaganda Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 8am and 12pm. The staff deals only with party officials; armed guards politely shoo other visitors away.

Crime en ligne - Éditions La Découverte

Le crime sur le web recouvre une multitude de situations, de pratiques et d’acteurs. Il renvoie aussi bien aux crimes/délits qui menacent l’intégrité des systèmes d’information (intrusions dans les systèmes, attaques virales, perturbations du fonctionnement des systèmes, atteintes aux données…) que ceux utilisant le cyberespace comme simple vecteur ou outil de délits plus conventionnels (fraude, trafics de drogue, trafics d’armes, criminalité économique et financière, pédopornographie, racisme, propagande terroriste, harcèlement, etc.). Le crime (cyber ou pas) peut être aussi analysé à partir des traces laissées en ligne qui offrent aux chercheurs en sciences sociales l'occasion d'exploiter de l'information sur le crime d'une nature nouvelle.
Partant de cette conception large du crime en ligne, ce numéro de Réseaux propose de dépasser la notion de « cybercriminalité » qui généralement confine à la compréhension du changement de nature de la criminalité opérant par et sur des appareils électroniques ou des réseaux informatiques. Il s’agit plutôt ici d’interroger d’une manière générale les liens entre le crime et le web. Plus précisément, nous renversons l’approche habituelle en interrogeant la manière dont le web met le crime à l’épreuve, et non pas l’inverse. Le web est ainsi envisagé comme un espace sociotechnique sur lequel il est possible de faire des sciences sociale au croisement de la sociologie crime et des études numériques.

Strategic impact documentary: Contexts of production and social intervention

The past decade has seen the emergence of a new kind of documentary making that marries documentary storytelling and the principles of strategic communication. Strategic impact documentary is a transmedia practice that aims to achieve specific social change by aligning documentary production with online and offline communications practices. The contemporary media environment is one in which a wide range of organizations work to achieve their political and social goals through the media. This article highlights key characteristics of an emerging form of professional documentary production, drawing attention to formal development and changing contexts of production and the implications of this for our understanding of the link between documentary and social change.

Washington’s Not-So-Invisible Hand: It’s Not Economics, It’s Empire

Washington’s Not-So-Invisible Hand: It’s Not Economics, It’s Empire | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
Scottish philosopher Adam Smith famously noted the “invisible hand” of the market that shaped the character of economies near and far. The rightwing neoliberal capitalist movement, dominant in the West since the early Seventies, has turned this phrase into the sacrosanct dictum of its secular religion. All human behavior must be submitted to the “free market.” (This is the notional credo, but in practice corporate elites are subsidized, bailout out, and given every possible taxpayer benefit to ensure higher private profits.) So now, when nations fail, it is typically said in the media to be the product of a) a crazed dictator threatening counterintuitive genocide on his own people; or b) foolish state interventions by deranged socialist ideologues.

Sorti il y a un peu moins de deux ans, j'avoue avoir été attiré par le titre de l'ouvrage pour alimenter mes propres travaux en matière de cyberconflictualité. La lecture "stylo en main" de l'ouvrage confirme cette intuition. Joseph Henrotin, se place dans la filiation du professeur Hervé Coutau-Bégarie, certainement le plus éminent des stratégistes français, et nous livre une présentation complète des concepts qui peuvent sembler abscons.

La guerre de l’information russe : pour une réponse globale

La guerre de l’information russe : pour une réponse globale | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it
La guerre de l’information est l’une des composantes de la guerre tout court. Elle combine ce qu’on appelle soft power et hard power et n’est pas limitée à la Russie. Moscou l’a toutefois développée avec une ampleur inégalée en termes de moyens financiers et humains et d’extension géographique. Cette guerre a une dimension à la fois interne et externe : elle vise, d’un côté, à laver le cerveau de ses citoyens en leur faisant perdre tout repère tout en instillant la crainte et, de l’autre, à gagner à ses thèses une partie des dirigeants et de l’opinion publique à l’étranger.
