Communication Pathways

http://www.fao.org/communication-for-... (EN) Communication is a key component of agricultural innovation and rural development. Development programmes can achieve their goals only if rural communities are actively engaged in local decision-making, and communication facilitates this process through knowledge and information sharing. The short documentary “Communication Pathways” has been produced by FAO to showcase experiences and good practices in the use of participatory communication processes as a strategic asset to mobilize rural people and institutions towards collaborative change. Although the cases illustrated are mainly based in the Latin American region, the lessons learned can easily apply to other contexts worldwide. (ES) La comunicación es un componente clave para la innovación agrícola y el desarrollo rural. Los programas de desarrollo pueden alcanzar sus objetivos solo si las comunidades rurales son involucradas en la toma de decisiones, y la comunicación facilita este proceso a través del intercambio de conocimientos e información. El documental “Los caminos de la Comunicación”, producido por FAO, muestra experiencias y buenas prácticas en el uso de procesos de comunicación participativa como una estrategia valiosa para la movilización de la población e instituciones rurales hacia el cambio colaborativo. A pesar de que los casos ilustrados son de Latinoamérica, las lecciones aprendidas pueden aplicarse en otros contextos. Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

The ethics of cosmopolitanism

The ethics of cosmopolitanism | Jan Servaes | Scoop.it
Are you a cosmopolitan? This ancient concept that we should aspire to be citizens of the world is in fact not about travelling the globe. It’s about being curious about other cultures and about being open to accept differences. Cosmopolitanism has become one of the most pressing issues in modern ethics and political thought: If globalization has become the condition of modern society what are the implications for ethical action? Renowned philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah explores the ethics of cosmopolitanism.
Jan Servaes's insight:

A conversation with Kwame Anthony Appiah on cosmopolitanism. Food for thought at the beginning of a new year.

Terrorism Response Puts Belgium in a Harsh Light

Terrorism Response Puts Belgium in a Harsh Light | Jan Servaes | Scoop.it
As Brussels remains locked down for a fourth day, the failure to stop two brothers flagged as extremists before the Paris carnage has highlighted Belgium’s perennial dysfunctions.

In the Capital of Europe

In the Capital of Europe | Jan Servaes | Scoop.it
Brussels, that magnificent repository of history, with its Renaissance guild houses and nineteenth-century palaces built on fortunes made in the Congo, is the capital of Belgium, but few Belgians take much pride in it, in the way the French are proud of Paris, or the British of London. Flemish politicians and businessmen prefer to live in Antwerp or Ghent. To many Belgians, Brussels is a strange city of immigrants, refugees, and foreign grandees. It is still a capital in search of a nation. And if you include the EU, it is also a capital in search of an empire, or a federal state, or whatever it is that Europe is destined to become.

After ‘The Last Intellectuals’

After ‘The Last Intellectuals’ | Jan Servaes | Scoop.it
Almost 30 years after Russell Jacoby wrote his influential book, he and other scholars look back at the status of public intellectuals in a new academic climate.
Jan Servaes's insight:

In a new academic climate — one marked by the rise of the Internet, demands for greater diversity on campus, and harsh economic realities — the question persists: What role does the university play in helping or hindering a culture of public intellectuals?

Is There a Belgium? by Tony Judt

Is There a Belgium? by Tony Judt | Jan Servaes | Scoop.it
Belgium gets a bad press. A small country—the size of Wales, with a population of just ten million—it rarely attracts foreign notice; when it does, the sentiment it arouses is usually scorn, sometimes distaste. Charles Baudelaire, who lived there briefly in the 1860s, devoted considerable splenetic attention to the country. His ruminations on Belgium and its people occupy 152 pages of the Oeuvres Complètes; Belgium, he concluded, is ...
Jan Servaes's insight:

Just as a reminder: this was published first in 1999, not 2015
