Sultana reviews Global Gobeshona Conference in Dhaka Tribune

"Given that climate change impacts the most vulnerable across the world, yet the voices of the vulnerable are always not heard or heeded sufficiently in high-level planning and decision-making, conferences like the Global Gobeshona Conference enhance opportunities to have different voices and positionalities to be present in spaces of global knowledge sharing," writes Farhana Sultana, associate professor of geography and the environment.

Conversations in Conflict Studies with Simon Kiss

The Ambiguous Meaning of Open Government: Canadian Journalists, Parliamentarians and Bloggers Define Open Government Differently."  Guest Speaker: Simon Kiss, Associate Professor, Digital Media and Journalism and Leadership, Wilfrid Laurier University. 
The results of a 2014 survey of Canadian parliamentarians, journalists and bloggers in which respondents were asked to rank competing definitions of open government. Overall, respondents preferred to define open government in terms of access to information and sources. However, we also found that respondents in the different positions rank definitions of open government differently. Government parliamentarians are less likely than opposition parliamentarians to define open government in terms of access to information and politicians being accessible and accountable, while journalists are more likely to do so. In addition, government politicians are much less likely than opposition politicians to define open government in terms of making officials and technical experts available to answer questions. These results suggest that key actors in the Canadian policy landscape define open government in ways that are consistent with their institutional interests. We suggest that this reflects ways in which open government operates more like a buzzword. This helps to explain the all too common pattern whereby opposition parties make promises to be more open, and, after taking power, operate in less than open ways.
