Twenty years after the end of the Soviet Union, the South Caucasus countries can no longer be considered ‘in transition.’ Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia have built functioning sovereign states. But many questions remain about how well they are faring […] THE SOUTH CAUCASUS 20 YEARS AFTER INDEPENDENCE

RUSSIAN MILITARY ROAD BLOCK, ROAD TO GORI © ONNIK JAMES KRIKORIAN 2008

Anyone who believes that all citizen media are objective and impar tial is either mad or hasn't actually read any citizen media. […] What's become very difficult is using citizen media to understand what's actually happening on the ground. […] This sor t of situation can get even more complicated when there aren't impar tial journalists on the ground. ETHAN ZUCKERMAN

 RUSSIA-GEORGIA WAR

ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE? In the 21st century, media has begun to affect war more than ever before. Digital media technologies [...] have increased communication and information dissemination in conflict settings [...]. These new tools can be used to foment violence or to foster peace, and it is possible to build communication systems that encourage dialogue and nonviolent political solutions. !

THE MEDIA AND ICT4D

We hear far too little of what I call this “third narrative” of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, a narrative of peace. It spins the idea that the two people are capable of getting along fine, have lived together in the past and, if politicians are able to overcome differences […], can live together in the future. International mediators are too times to speak this narrative or feel that is not their business. The media in both countries suppresses it. CAUCASUS CONFLICT VOICES, MAY 2011

ALTERNATIVE NARRATIVES

A CYBER UTOPIA? I study the ways new media shapes people's perceptions of the world. It's my fond hope that social networks such as Facebook will help users broaden their perspectives by listening to a different set of people than they encounter in their daily life. But I fear services such asFacebook may be turning us into imaginary cosmopolitans. ! CNN, DOES FACEBOOK UNITE OR DIVIDE US? http://edition.cnn.com/2010/OPINION/08/03/zuckerman.facebook.global/

A CYBER UTOPIA? The reason why the KGB wants you to join Facebook is because it allows them to learn more about you from afar. It allows them to identify certain social graphs and social connections between activists. Many of these relationships are now self-disclosed by activists by joining various groups. ! EVGENY MOROZOV, THE NET DELUSION: DARK SIDE OF INTERNET FREEDOM http://www.rferl.org/content/interview_morozov_internet_democracy_promotion/ 2284105.html


CYBER REALISM [...] the internet is not magic; it is a tool. Anyone who wants to use it to bring nations closer together has to show initiative, and be ready to travel physically as well as vir tually. As with the telegraph before it— also hailed as a tool of peace — the internet does nothing on its own. !
