    Description

    Sharing your story and the stories of others is an important part of the experience of working with marginalized communities. These issues are just as relevant across the globe as they are across the road. Stories can be told through photos, blogs, social media, videos, and even research articles. Because of the power inequities that exist in community development initiatives, this storytelling comes with a certain level of personal responsibility. In an environment that does not provide us with guidelines for ethical storytelling practices, it is up to us to develop our own codes of ethics for storytelling in community development initiatives. Join us in a conversation about how we as a community can best respect the dignity and autonomy of the people who help shape our own stories. Please let me know if you need any additional information. Once again, thanks for your help!

    Description

    Urban and rural areas used to be distinct entities with different values, economies, labour trends, and ways of life but, over time, they have converged. Most provincial governments have linked rural and urban areas through institutions such as regional governments, but many counties still have a separated city. In these cases, the urban city has no institutional connection to the rural county around it. This talk will present findings from a new book about the peculiarities of city-county separation. What are the dangers of having municipal institutions that are too rigid to modernize, and what does it mean for the future of regional governance in Ontario?

    Zachary Spicer is Assistant Professor at Brock University, where he teaches and conducts research in the areas of local government and public policy. He is a former IMFG post-doctoral fellow.

    Click here to pre-order his new book, The Boundary Bargain: Growth, Development, and the Future of City-County Separation.

    Space is limited and registration is required.

    Description

    How can you counteract an information war? Hromadske Radio, Public Radio Ukraine, decided to provide accurate and objective information to audiences – free of state and corporate censorship and any kind of manipulation. They broadcasted throughout Ukraine’s Euromaidan, and beyond. This book brings together a series of English language reports on the Ukraine crisis first broadcast on Hromadske Radio between 3 February 2014 and 7 August 2015. Collected and transcribed here, they offer a kaleidoscopic chronicle of events in Ukraine. Bookending the reports, purpose written introduction and conclusion sections contextualize the independent radio project within the larger picture of Ukraine’s media and political developments – both before the Euromaidan and in its dramatic aftermath. The book also features a preface by David R. Marples.

    Series

    CSUS and F. Ross Johnson Distinguished Speaker Series

    Description

    From the 140 characters of Twitter to the 10 seconds of Snapchat, digital and social media are transforming the role of media in U.S. politics. As the Presidential candidates, TV and cable news, and print media race to keep pace with instantaneous reporting, citizen journalists and social media, how is political coverage evolving, and how is this changing politics? What will be the impact when 100 million Snapchat users become politically active?

    Join former Globe and Mail editor John Stackhouse in discussion with Marcus Brauchli, former editor of the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal in what will no doubt be a compelling and insightful discussion just six weeks away from the U.S. elections.

    Series

    Innovation Policy Lab Seminar Series

    Description

    This presentation outlines current thinking on important terms for research and innovation driven regional development. In our case study from Baden-Württemberg, Germany, we describe the supporting policies for and the activities of a public-private partnership comprising: HEIs and RTOs, enterprises from MNCs to SMEs, different innovation-facilitating and -boosting, administrative and civil society organisations. In order to stay successful also in global markets, and thus to maintain well-paid jobs and quality of life in the region, they invested about C$ 150 million from private (50%) and public sources (regional, national, EU) to develop Microsystem Technology (MST) applications. MST, General Purpose Technologies (GPTs) with innovation promoting potential in all industrial sectors, impact increasingly on practically all aspects of our everyday lives. Investments went to interrelated R&I activities, and a range of ‘structural projects’, from internationalisation to education and (re)training, to strategy (co)development and implementation.
    Dr. Günter Clar, an industrial chemist by education, started his professional career in the academic sphere teaching, performing research and cooperating with industry in Europe, Asia and America. Firmly rooted in his professional and policy networks, Günter Clar is an independent consultant, involved in policy advice and development, strategic capacity building, R&I program design and evaluation, and the development of the institutional landscape/governance systems.
