    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

    Book Launch

    Description

    Decentering Citizenship follows three groups of Filipina migrants’ struggles to belong in South Korea: factory workers claiming rights as workers, wives of South Korean men claiming rights as mothers, and hostesses at American military clubs who are excluded from claims—unless they claim to be victims of trafficking. Moving beyond laws and policies, Hae Yeon Choo examines how rights are enacted, translated, and challenged in daily life and ultimately interrogates the concept of citizenship.

    Choo reveals citizenship as a language of social and personal transformation within the pursuit of dignity, security, and mobility. Her vivid ethnography of both migrants and their South Korean advocates illuminates how social inequalities of gender, race, class, and nation operate in defining citizenship. Decentering Citizenship argues that citizenship emerges from negotiations about rights and belonging between South Koreans and migrants. As the promise of equal rights and full membership in a polity erodes in the face of global inequalities, this decentering illuminates important contestation at the margins of citizenship.

    Hae Yeon Choo is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto, Mississauga. Her book Decentering Citizenship: Gender, Labor, and Migrant Rights in South Korea (Stanford University Press, 2016) examines how inequalities of gender, race, and class affect migrant rights through a comparative study of three groups of Filipina women in South Korea—factory workers, wives of South Korean men, and club hostesses.

What will be the impact when 100 million Snapchat users become politically active?

    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.
