But in this way they excite a just suspicion against themselves, and cannot lay claim that unfeigned respect that reason grants only to that which has been able to withstand its free and public examination. This immaturity is self-incurred when its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in lack of resolution and courage to use it without direction from another.
What people think matters in our increasingly high-speed, post-truth, well-connected world.
Besides the role of civil society organisations and other principal stakeholders in elections, the introduction of a biometric smart card reader for the authentication of voters’ cards seems to have made most of these electoral ills largely unworkable. Many theories of change in relation to civil society are based on an assumption of a state which is capable and willing to respond to the demand of its citizens, as illustrated in the implicit intervention logic in the Danida civil society. Assumption College’s agreement with the University of Notre Dame College of Engineering allows qualified Assumption students to earn a B.A. in chemistry, environmental science, mathematics or computer science from Assumption College and a B.S. in one of several fields of engineering from the University of Notre Dame.
However, what people choose to think is sometimes based on false assumptions. An overwhelming abundance of information is as counter-productive as the lack of it. That is why GLOBSEC decided to develop a concise guide that helps address some of the most common myths about the European Union in a succinct and comprehensible manner.
What myths are we debunking? The European Union is falling apart Myth 2: The euro is the cause of all evils Myth 6: Complicated privacy regulations make European businesses uncompetitive Myth 8: We are experiencing the Islamisation of Europe Myth 9: The European Union is a paradise for refugees Myth Refugees are the main cause of terrorist attacks in Europe Myth The European Union suffers from terrorism because we are too soft on extremists Who is it for?
This short guide is primarily aimed at politicians, communication and media officers, public officials, civil society activists and teachers frustrated by the use of alternative facts to undermine their work in building a better EU for everyone. They can use it as a reference point. But in the end, the messages are for all concerned citizens.
Why have a copy? People demand direct communication from their public officials. It takes time to select and highlight the necessary information or construct a logical argument.
Indeed, it is almost impossible to remember everything surrounding every issue. This guide will be your reliable and time-saving companion on occasions when you are faced with a difficult question or find it necessary to correct faulty assumptions.
And these occasions will be more and more frequent.
Elections to the European Parliament are only a year away. Discussions about reform of the EU are accelerating, and citizens need to be convinced of their meaningfulness and value. National conventions are happening in more and more countries.
Journalists never stop asking questions. Yes, more than ever. But it is of course also about how facts are communicated. Facts are regularly used as part of a personal story or passionate address. A tweet can by funny, touching, trustworthy and reality-based all at the same time.
We aim to help with the latter part of the mix.According to the civil society group, the statement from Finance Minister Tweah undermines the investigation committee set up by the President George Maneh Weah. Hillary said, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.
That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. In what must count as the final nail in the coffin of the prevailing “gig economy” narrative, even that most bedrock of assumptions about the modern workforce – that today’s workers are more transient and today’s employers less loyal than either were in the past – appears to be without basis.
Both civil society representatives and government officials were of the view that public sector corruption, and related to it, ineffec- tive government institutions and state enterprises, pose the severest.
