Mediated visibility
  • John B. Thompson
  • The media produce visibility which is selective
    and which allows close-up views of people and
    things that are spatially and temporally distant
    from the receiver.
  • 1st order scandal (original transgression) often
    lead to 2nd order scandal (cover-up,
    indifference) which may be more damaging than the
    original scandal.

7
Risk society
  • Ulrich Beck
  • Risk conflicts occur when the system of dealing
    with risk have broken down. Finger pointing is a
    sign than a risk conflict is out of control, and
    more and more people and institutions get
    involved in the conflict.
  • The success of a campaign depends on the grammar
    of dramatization.
  • Paradoxical inverse relationship of power and
    legitimacy
  • Companies high power, low legitimacy
  • NGOs Low power, high legitimacy

Trust
  • A. Zeitlin
  • Trust is a consequence rather than a precondition
    for practical cooperation. Consensus is less the
    antithesis of conflict than its succesful
    resolution.
  • Niklas Luhman
  • Trust reduces complexity
  • System trust

12
Learning points
  • Avoid 2nd order scandals (take transgressions
    seriously).
  • Dont point fingers at developing-country
    governments.
  • Dont drop problem cases. Collaborate to find
    solutions.
