Framing terrorism : the news media, the government, and the public by Pippa Norris( )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terrorism now dominates the headlines across the world-from New York to Kabul. Framing Terrorism argues that the headlines matter as much as the act, in political terms. Widely publicized terrorist incidents leave an imprint upon public opinion, muzzle the "watchdog" role of journalists and promote a general one-of-us consensus supporting security forces. Contributors to the volume begin by focusing on how governments, security forces and terrorist groups seek to manipulate the news, including the legal and normative issues of formal and informal government censorship and curbs on freedom of the press. They then focus upon how journalists construct the news and how the public responds to news coverage-including "rallying-round-the-flag", public attention and comprehension of terrorist events and the public's response to issues of civil liberties vs. security." --Publisher description
Electoral engineering : voting rules and political behavior by Pippa Norris( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Kosovo to Kabul, the last decade witnessed growing interest in ?electoral engineering?. Reformers have sought to achieve either greater government accountability through majoritarian arrangements or wider parliamentary diversity through proportional formula. Underlying the normative debates are important claims about the impact and consequences of electoral reform for political representation and voting behavior. The study compares and evaluates two broad schools of thought, each offering contracting expectations. One popular approach claims that formal rules define electoral incentives facing parties, politicians and citizens. By changing these rules, rational choice institutionalism claims that we have the capacity to shape political behavior. Alternative cultural modernization theories differ in their emphasis on the primary motors driving human behavior, their expectations about the pace of change, and also their assumptions about the ability of formal institutional rules to alter, rather than adapt to, deeply embedded and habitual social norms and patterns of human behavior

Comparing democracies 2 : new challenges in the study of elections and voting( )

28 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A vigorous and healthy system of representative government does not live by competitive elections alone, conclude political scientists from North America and Europe, but also requires transparency and accountability, vigorous party competition, political rights and civil liberties, many channels for political communication, and citizen participation. In ten essays updated from the 1996 edition, itself based on a conference, they consider such aspects as the politics of direct democracy through referendums and initiatives, candidate selection, campaign communications, and the dynamics of electoral participation

Democratic deficit : Critical citizens revisited by Pippa Norris( )

27 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many fear that democracies are suffering from a legitimacy crisis. This book focuses on 'democratic deficits, ' reflecting how far the perceived democratic performance of any state diverges from public expectations. Pippa Norris examines the symptoms by comparing system support in more than fifty societies worldwide, challenging the pervasive claim that most established democracies have experienced a steadily rising tide of political disaffection during the third-wave era. The book diagnoses the reasons behind the democratic deficit, including demand (rising public aspirations for democracy), information (negative news about government), and supply (the performance and structure of democratic regimes). Finally, Norris examines the consequences for active citizenship, for governance, and ultimately, for democratization. This book provides fresh insights into major issues at the heart of comparative politics, public opinion, political culture, political behavior, democratic governance, political psychology, political communications, public policymaking, comparative sociology, cross-national survey analysis, and the dynamics of the democratization process"--
Making democratic governance work : how regimes shape prosperity, welfare, and peace by Pippa Norris( )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is democratic governance good for economic prosperity? Does it accelerate progress towards social welfare and human development? Does it generate a peace-dividend and reduce conflict at home? Within the international community, democracy and governance are widely advocated as intrinsically desirable goals. Nevertheless, alternative schools of thought dispute their consequences and the most effective strategy for achieving critical developmental objectives. This book argues that both liberal democracy and state capacity need to be strengthened to ensure effective development, within the constraints posed by structural conditions. Liberal democracy allows citizens to express their demands, hold public officials to account and rid themselves of ineffective leaders. Yet rising public demands that cannot be met by the state generate disillusionment with incumbent officeholders, the regime, or ultimately the promise of liberal democracy ideals. Thus governance capacity also plays a vital role in advancing human security, enabling states to respond effectively to citizen's demands"--
Women, media, and politics by media, and politics (Conference) Women( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zoals de titel aanduidt bestuderen de bijdragen in deze bundel de wisselwerking tussen de macht van vrouwen en de uitbeelding van die macht in de media. Is de invloed van de media op het beeld en de rol van de vrouw als burger, als politica en als feministe een steun in de rug voor roldoorbreking of eerder rolbevestigend? Om deze vragen te kunnen beantwoorden onderzoeken de opstellen o.a. de rol van vrouwelijke journalisten, de invloed van journalistieke verslaggeving van verkiezingscampagnes, de beeldvorming rond vrouwen met macht, en de verslaggeving over de vrouwenbeweging en feministisch gekleurde thema's
Why American elections are flawed (and how to fix them) by Pippa Norris( )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] describes several major challenges observed during the 2016 U.S. elections arising from deepening party polarization over basic voting procedures, the serious risks of hacking and weak cyber-security, the consequences of deregulating campaign spending, and lack of professional and impartial electoral management. [The author] outlines the core concept and measure of electoral integrity, the key yardstick used to evaluate free and fair elections. Evidence from expert and mass surveys demonstrate the extent of problems in American elections. She shows how these challenges could be addressed through several practical steps designed to improve electoral procedures and practices. If implemented, the reforms will advance free and fair elections, and liberal democracy, at home and abroad."--

20 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public sentinel : news media & governance reform by Pippa Norris( )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to inform governance advisors about the vital role of the news media for governance reform. This book approaches the issue of news media and governance with three broad questions that it attempts to answer on the basis of quantitative data and case studies. First, a normative approach asks: What ideal roles should media systems play to strengthen democratic governance and thus bolster human development? Second, an empirical approach considers independent evidence derived from cross-national comparisons and from selected case studies, asking: Under what conditions do media systems actually succeed or fail to fulfill these objectives? Third, a strategic approach asks: What policy interventions work most effectively to close the substantial gap that exists between the democratic promise and performance of the news media as an institution?

Driving democracy : do power-sharing institutions work? by Pippa Norris( Book )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proposals for power-sharing constitutions remain controversial, as highlighted by contemporary debates in Iraq, Afghanistan, Nepal, and Sudan. This book updates and refines the theory of consociationalism, taking account of the flood of contemporary innovations in power-sharing institutions that has occurred worldwide. The book classifies and compares four types of political institutions: the electoral system, parliamentary or presidential executives, unitary or federal states, and the structure and independence of the mass media. The study tests the potential advantages and disadvantages of each of these arrangements for democratic governance. Trends in democracy are analyzed for all countries worldwide since the early 1970s. Chapters are enriched by comparing detailed case studies. The mixed-method research design illuminates historical developments within particular nations and regions. The Conclusions draw together the practical lessons for policymakers, "--Jacket
