  • Is Violence a Function of our Culture? (Full Session)

    Homicide remains an endemic, seemingly unsolvable problem in America. And violent crime afflicts African-American communities to a much greater degree than it does others, as does mass incarceration — and as does police violence. What is the cause of this crisis? What role does racism play? What is the role of culture? Are there any solutions to be had? The mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu, has been confronting this crisis head-on, and Atlantic Magazine National Correspondent Ta-Nehisi Coates has written widely on matters of race, policing and American history.

  • Violence Erupts at German Anti-Austerity Protests

    Officials told NBC News that hundreds of anti-austerity protesters clashed with police and set fire to at least seven squad cars in the German city of Frankfurt early Wednesday. The skirmishes broke out during demonstrations organized by the pan-European anti-austerity Blockupy movement protesting the inauguration ceremony of the new offices of the European Central Bank. Police spokeswoman Tessa Koscheg said, "The atmosphere is highly aggressive," adding that there were "several hundreds" of protesters. Some protesters spilled over into the city center and police said they were engaging with several smaller groups of demonstrators along the city's river Main and one of its shopping districts. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/4484cbbc/sc/30/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cnews0Cworld0Cgerman0E...

Every choice you make, every behavior you exhibit, and even every desire you have finds its roots in the social universe. Nicholas Christakis explains why individual actions are inextricably linked to sociological pressures; whether you're absorbing altruism performed by someone you'll never meet or deciding to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge, collective phenomena affect every aspect of your life.

    The European Central Bank holds one of its most important meetings ever on Thursday as governors try to prevent the Greek debt crisis from overwhelming other eurozone countries, the French news agency AFP reported on Thursday. "The main issue is not Greece per se but the gathering contagion to the rest of the eurozone," economist Nouriel Roubini said as financial market pressure began to bear down on Portugal and Spain. Portugal is one of the countries seen as most ripe for contagion, but the decision to meet in Lisbon was taken more than a year ago, months before the Greek debt crisis erupted. The European Union and International Monetary Fund agreed last week to a three-year rescue package worth 110 billion euros (143 billion dollars) to help Athens pay its debts in exchange for auste...

It is crucial to understand how empowerment and accountability can be achieved in such settings.

His research shows that incidents of violent political conflict cluster in space and time, and that openings in political opportunity structures encourage the contagion of violence between groups and across national borders. Ghosn’s interests focus on the interaction of adversaries and how such actors handle their disagreements. A common theme is the importance of the choice of strategy.

Facebook Emotional Experiment Linked To Pentagon Research On Civil Unrest Facebook's experiment on over half-a-million unsuspecting users has taken a new twist with the revelation that a researcher connected to a Department of Defense-funded program to use the military to quell civil unrest also participated in the study. Social media sites exploded over the weekend after it was revealed that Facebook, no stranger to controversy of late, secretly manipulated posts being seen by nearly 700,000 users in 2012 in order to allow researchers to study how emotional states are transmitted over the platform. Results of the week-long study conducted by researchers at Facebook, Cornell University, and the University of California appeared in the June edition of the journal 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists' (PNAS) under the rather insidious title, 'Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks'. Facebook altered the content that showed up on certain users' news feeds to control the number of posts that contained words with positively or negatively charged emotions. The team concluded its federally funded study by saying that "emotions spread via contagion through a network." More Here: http://rt.com/usa/169848-pentagon-facebook-study-minerva/ Facebook's controversial "emotional study", which subjected over half a million unwitting users of the social network to a psychological conditioning experiment, has direct ties to research funded by the Department of Defense concerning the likelihood of civil unrest. The Facebook scandal hit the headlines this week, as it was revealed that the company participated with a federally funded UCSF study into how emotions can be swayed on social media by controlling the content of personal feeds and deciding whether to show negative or positive material. While that fact in itself is disturbing, it seems that the rabbit hole goes even deeper. Bloggers and online sleuths have since highlighted that the research appears to be at least in part connected to a Pentagon-led project called the Minerva Initiative. Researcher and London Guardian writer Nafeez Ahmed has noted that the project provides "funding to universities to model the dynamics, risks and tipping points for large-scale civil unrest across the world." In other words, the DoD wants to master how to predict, prevent, manipulate, control, and even instigate mass civil unrest. It wishes to do this by developing "operational tools" related to "social, cultural, behavioral, and political forces."

Rating agency Moody's has set itself on a collision course with German Chancellor Angela Merkel - after changing the country's credit outlook to negative. The agency even hinted at possible downgrades - if the Eurozone gets worse. But Merkel immediately fired back that Germany would remain Europe's financial haven, despite the Eurocrisis.

Greece is on the verge of a precipice - a day after unrest which saw three people killed, the country's Parliament is debating the austerity package which sparked the violence. The situation remains tense and many analysts say it's the high price Greece is having to pay for being part of the Eurozone - a cost now being picked up by the people. RT's Mark Gay explains.

We're here in what I was told repeatedly is the home of European democracy, and so, surely, we could have taken the opportunity this morning to celebrate the Dutch referendum last week in which the people said No to EU enlargement, No to the deal with the Ukraine. And no doubt had it been Turkey an even bigger number of people would have said No to Turkish accession. So it was a victory for democracy, but in paricular it was a victory for a little organisation called Geenpeil, a group of young bloggers who managed to get together 427,000 signatures. So it was a victory as well for direct democracy - and this in the week when we remember that Gianroberto Casaleggio, the genius behind the 5-Star Movement in Italy, has died. This, ladies and gentlemen, is new politics. And yet, we were told by Mr Juncker that if the Dutch voted No it would be a disaster. But he hasn't mentioned it today at all. And indeed your predecessor Mr Van Rompuy, my old mate, says we should carry on lively. So what we're seeing is the big battalions of vested best interest doing their best to completely ignore the will of the Ducth people. Well, I think that things are changing. I don't believe these institutions can survive 21st Century technology. I think the will of the people is changing politics in a way that makes all of you in this room deeply fearful - and so you should be. And as we in the united Kingdom enter the final countdown of our referendum, all eyes are on this Turkish deal. And I think what we see is, we see the bosses of the EU bowing and scraping before Mr Erdogan who gleefully walks all over you, tramples over human rights at every level - and for Mr Juncker to tell us this morning that we're making progress! Let's just examine that. 1.8 million people have come to the EU in the last eighteen months and we've sent back 300. It doesn't sound, sir, that it's going very well to me. The one group that will be pleased though are ISIS. They have now managed to put 5,000 of their operatives into the European continent, according to the boss of Europol - something that should send a shiver down our collective spines. I have to say that in the end, I think it's what the British referendum will turn on. I think we will vote for Brexit, and the reason is we'll vote to put our own safety first. It is going to be as it was in the Netherlands last week - a battle of people vs the politicians. You may have the big money and the big businesses and Goldman Sachs, but we've got our armies of bloggers, and in the end the people's will is going to prevail. This place won't survive.

The European Central Bank holds one of its most important meetings ever on Thursday as governors try to prevent the Greek debt crisis from overwhelming other eurozone countries, the French news agency AFP reported on Thursday. "The main issue is not Greece per se but the gathering contagion to the rest of the eurozone," economist Nouriel Roubini said as financial market pressure began to bear down on Portugal and Spain. Portugal is one of the countries seen as most ripe for contagion, but the decision to meet in Lisbon was taken more than a year ago, months before the Greek debt crisis erupted. The European Union and International Monetary Fund agreed last week to a three-year rescue package worth 110 billion euros (143 billion dollars) to help Athens pay its debts in exchange for austerity cuts that have stoked public anger. Greek President Carolos Papoulias said the nation had "reached the edge of the abyss" on Wednesday as violence during protests left three people dead. On top of hesitation by EU leaders, the ECB did an unprecedented volte face this week by saying it would accept Greek debt as collateral for central bank loans even if the debt was downgraded to junk status, as the ratings agency Standard and Poor's has done. The move provided crucial relief to Greek banks and the government but dented the central bank's credibility. On more stable ground, the ECB governing council will undoubtedly leave the bank's main interest rate at one percent, marking a full year at that record low point. Bank governors will probably also note improved economic prospects for the 16-nation eurozone, where industrial output has strengthened and confidence among businesses and households has improved. The economy is set to grow by a better-than-expected 0.9 percent this year, the EU Commission said Wednesday. The ECB's target of keeping inflation just below two percent is not a real problem either, though the euro's sharp drop against major currencies amid the Greek crisis might put pressure on energy prices in the coming months.

With the Eurozone crisis heating up, protests getting violent in Greece and rating agencies renewing their downgrades of PIIGS nations, what does all of this mean for some of Europe's biggest banks that are most exposed to these countries? Are we headed towards another banking crisis, this time in Europe? Where will it start, and can contagion reach the US? You are going to be shocked to find out what entrepreneurial investor and independent analyst Reggie Middleton says US taxpayers could be on the line for.

Most recent studies of fostering empowerment and accountability in developing countries draw from experiences in relatively stable, safe, and democratic settings. Yet nearly two billion people live in countries where these conditions do not exist—where development outcomes are shaped by fragility, conflict, and violence. It is crucial to understand how empowerment and accountability can be achieved in such settings.

Recent events in Paris have prompted a number of questions, including these: How has global terrorism advanced so quickly? What part does religion play? And what actions should the United States and other countries take against the threat? University of Arizona associate professors Alex Braithwaite and Faten Ghosn of the School of Government and Public Policy, which is housed in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, offer some context and perspective on terrorism in light of the gun and bomb attacks on Nov. 13. Braithwaite’s research and teaching focus on the causes and contagion of violent and nonviolent conflict, including terrorism, protests, riots, civil war and international wars. His research shows that incidents of violent political conflict cluster in space and time, and that openings in political opportunity structures encourage the contagion of violence between groups and across national borders. Ghosn’s interests focus on the interaction of adversaries and how such actors handle their disagreements. A common theme is the importance of the choice of strategy. Her articles have appeared in Conflict Management and Peace Science, International Negotiation, International Studies Quarterly and Middle East Journal. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the American University of Beirut.
