‘Beyond #Networks, Interlocutory #Coalitions, the European and Global Legal Orders’ (#Springer, 2016), review by #Professor Jamal Shahin, #University of Amsterdam: “the text is a fascinating read for the non-legal #experts who is interested in understanding how legal spaces help define #political action. It is a ‘call to arms’ for #scholar whishing to understand the importance of the role of #Global #CivilSociety in participating in the constant and yet wavering movement towards a more globalised world”. #academic #policyanalyst #monography #publishorperish #springer #editor #law #legalstudies #internationalrelations #academicjournal #advocacy #activism #lobbying #pressuregroup #europeanunion #ngo #policymaking #newyorkuniversity #vesaliuscollege #picoftheday

Thanks to Antonella and Nina for the amazing talk at #nyuflorence tonight. The old scheme #activist vs #scholar worked fine: Antonella provided us with fresh and actual insights on what it takes to balance #success and #failure and measure #impact in #advocacy. Nina offered in-depth #analysis of #global #campaigning, #civilsociety #networking, and the challenges of a scholar interested in #democracy and #civicengagement. I am glad to conclude this long day with such a nice #debate with friends, colleagues and of course #students. #professor #academic #university #newyorkuniversity #lapietradialogues #workshop #politics #policymaking #picoftheday

Today’s class of ‘#media, #activism & #democracy’ at @nyuflorence is dedicated to the concept of ‘#artivism’ - a label used to define artistic expressions aimed at producing social change. Yet artivism has severe limitations: what kind of artistic expression should be labelled as ‘art’? Can we use artivism only to define the art that it is intentionally aimed at producing social change? And, most importantly, exactly what kind of social change should we consider when assessing the social impact of artistic expression? To explain these differences, in this #prezi #slide I compare #bansky with #sofiaashraf through the (main) medium used to communicate, the message, the outreach and the actual impact they have. #professor #scholar #academic #lecture #policyanalyst #teaching #inclass #newyorkuniversity #nyuflorence #nyuglobalprograms #civilsociety #advocacy #lobbying #infocus #politics #society #contemporaryart #civic #participation #global #students #picoftheday @nyuglobalprograms @nyuniversity

Ready to debate at @nyuflorence - with two outstanding speakers - a topic of great actuality: #global #advocacy. #professor #scholar #academic #university #lecture #debate #workshop #symposium #newyorkuniversity #florence #studyabroad #networking #civilsociety #oncampus #speakes #politics #europeanunion #lobbying #poster #students #picoftheday @nyuglobalprograms @nyuniversity
What a pleasant surprise today: this is Academia, a trilingual (Italian, English, and German) publication from #Eurac research centre of the #university of #bolzano, in Italy. Not a traditional #academic #journal, not a promotional brochure, and not a #magazine: academia is an intelligent mix of all these formats. Composed of short interviews with #teaching staff from various disciplines (law, political sciences, math, engineer) at Eurac, short takes on academic life, it narrates in a funny way academic life and challenges. Oh, did I mention that is completely free of charge? #professor #academic #scholar #journal #outreach #communication #media #promotion #storytelling #journalism #article #reading #research #picoftheday

Connecting the dots: today with my #students of ‘#media, #activism & #democracy’ at @nyuflorence we completed the exploration of #strategies of #advocacy, namely: #protest, raising awareness, #networking, #lobbying/#empowerment. To show them how strategies constantly overlap, I separated them in 4 groups, asking to pick a case of activism, identify the strategies used to advocate for it, and put them in a sequence. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the 4 cases follow a different pattern, with different intersections and impacts on political systems. #professor #scholar #academic #university #lecture #inclass #groupexercise #prezi #blackboard #fallsemester #newyorkuniversity #global #studyabroad #communication #civilsociety #politics #policymaking #learnbydoing #picoftheday

#colinkaepernick explained to my #students of ‘#media, #activism & #democracy’ at @nyuflorence. This is a great case study to exemplify the overlap of different strategies of #advocacy, and to debate the impact that activism #campaigns have on current political systems. When President #Trump, on September 22, expressed strong disapproval of this initiative, Karpernick went #mainstream, and many celebrated this as a victory over the system. In reality Trump shifted the focus of the #protest from black people rights to typical liberal vs conservative debate. Result? The autumn cover of ‘Sports Illustrated’ celebrating sports’ activism did not even include Kaepernick. #professor #scholar #academic #university #lecture #policyanalyst #teaching #inclass #newyorkuniversity #prezi #civilsociety #policymaking #socialmovements #civilrights #oncampus #picoftheday @nyuglobalprograms @nyuniversity

It doesn’t matter if you are a #scholar, a #civilservant, a #policyanalyst, a #geek or simply a curious: @the_govlab weekly #digest is a must-read. There is all you need to know on #civictech, #publicsector #innovation, #opendata, #nudging, participatory #democracy and #digitalgov. This week the digest hosts my last #paper on #gamification and public(s).

Today I challenged my #students in #rhetoric at #vesaliuscollege with a group exercise. I introduced them to the iconic and symbolic meanings in #popular #culture. Then I divided them in 3 teams, each corresponding to a #socialgroup: christians, black americans, and mothers. Task: to identify a sign exclusive  of each group, and one shared with a wider community. #professor #scholar #academic #lecture #teaching #inclass #university #faculty #communications #undergraduate #language #expatlife #brussels #picoftheday

‘No lobbyists’ - it could be summarized in just two words my last #post for the #blog of #riparteilfuturo. September was about to be remembered as a quite month for the ongoing #EU reform of #lobbying #transparency, when the #europeanparliament decided to ban #Monsanto lobbyists from accessing the Parliament buildings in #Bruxelles and #strasburg. This is more of a formal than a substantive act: of course the EU Parliament has no direct regulatory powers on individuals, and Monsanto does not really need to ‘locate’ its representatives in the building to #lobby the EU regulator. Yet it was quite a symbolic move. The message is clear: you play by the rules (in this case an invitation to appear in a committee hearing on #gliphosate) or you are out. An interesting shift to a #namingshaming tactique, perhaps a prelude to a crackdown on lobbying regulation?

Excited to be confirmed #faculty member at @sioi_unaitaly #master in #international and #european relations. Save the dates: on 04/11 I will deliver a #lecture on #EU institutional communication in time of #crisis. On 24/25 november I will run a #lab on ideating, designing and implementing an #advocacy campaign at the EU level. Still undecided on the topic: #glyphosate could be an option, or perhaps #privacy regulation, if not an evergreen: #tobacco. #professor, #scholar, #lecturer, #academic, #policyanalist #university #research #teaching #postgraduate #policymaking #politics #students #inclass #prezi #madeinrome #global #thinktank #picoftheday

Today at @nyuflorence I introduced my students in ‘#media, #activism & #democracy’ to strategies of activism. This is #protest: in an attempt to move away from generalized understandings of protest as mostly violent and spontaneous, we drafted this #chart. Protests range from peaceful sit-ins to violent actions, including both #online and #offline performances, against #public and private organizations. The chart exemplifies each cluster with the cases of #Femen, #BlackBlocs, #Ghandi, and anti Wal-Mart. #professor #scholar #teaching #lecture #academic #policyanalyst #university #newyorkuniversity #prezi #students #inclass #politics #policymaking #civilsociety #socialmovements #global #massmobilize #picoftheday @nyuglobalprograms @nyuliberalstudies
