Reflections of an Ethnographer
53,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

These stories derive from research conducted in Lao PDR in 2007 when Denise Buchner lived with two of her children in a rural village to conduct an ethnographic study about health seeking and utilization of public health facilities. During data collection, villagers shared their stories of illness and disability and what was often a long and catastrophic journey through multiple health systems. Often villagers sought help from multiple health providers in both the public and private sectors, including traditional healers, shamans, and drug peddlers. These stories offer a glimpse of the complex process of searching for health as experienced by some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the world from the perspective of an ethnographer. Woven into these stories is the author's personal narrative about the juxtaposition of her position as researcher and village guest.

Factors impacting on objectivity in news journa...
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This study will discuss objectivity also in reference to the problems that journalists face when they cover news stories. It may be that journalists may have problems searching for stories not because they do not embrace journalistic principles of fairness, clarity and objectivity, but because of the way in which facts are presented to them by news sources. There have been some cases whereby media audiences have wrongly been made to think that journalists are biased in their coverage. For example, the 2003 Iraq invasion by US-led forces, where correspondents were made to practice embedded journalism is a good example of how circumstances could force a journalist to succumb to soldiers demands of keeping their war causalities away from their cameras. It is worth noting, however, that being biased for a journalist in such a war situation could be circumstantial in the sense that an American journalist covering a story in Iraqi s capital, Baghdad, would be regarded as a spy by Iraqi s troops. Likewise, an Iraqi journalist chasing stories in the coalition force s camps in Iraqi s capital would be treated as a traitor by the Iraqi people.

Facing especially wicked problems, social-sector organizations are searching for powerful new methods to understand and address them. Design Thinking for the Greater Good goes in depth on both the how of using new tools and the why. As a way to reframe problems, ideate solutions, and iterate toward better answers, design thinking is already well established in the commercial world. Through ten stories of struggles and successes in fields such as health care, education, agriculture, transportation, social services, and security, the authors show how collaborative creativity can shake up even the most entrenched bureaucracies - and provide a practical roadmap for readers to implement these tools.
