Description: Since the so-called Arab Spring, citizens of African countries have continued to use digital tools in creative ways to ensure that marginalised voices are heard, and to demand for the rights they are entitled to in law: to freely associate, to form opinions, and to express them online without fear of violence or arrest. The authors of this compelling open access volume have brought to life this dramatic struggle for the digital realm between citizens and governments; documenting in vivid detail how citizens are using mobile and internet tools in powerful viral global campaigns to hold governments accountable and force policy change. With contributions from scholars across the continent, Digital Citizenship in Africa illustrates how citizens have been using VP Ns, encryption, and privacy-protecting browsers to resist limits on their rights to privacy and political speech. This book dramatically expands our understanding of the vast and growing arsenal of tech tools, tactics, and techniques now being deployed by repressive governments to limit the ability of citizens to safely and openly express opposition to government and corporate actions. AI-enabled surveillance, covertly deployed disinformation, and internet shutdowns are documented in ten countries, concluding with recommendations on how to curb government and corporate power, and how to re-invigorate digital citizenship across Africa.

    Price: £15.99

    Description: Digitization has transformed the way we interact with our social, political and economic environments. While it has enhanced the potential for citizen agency, it has also enabled the collection and analysis of unprecedented amounts of personal data. This requires us to fundamentally rethink our understanding of digital citizenship, based on an awareness of the ways in which citizens are increasingly monitored, categorized, sorted and profiled. Drawing on extensive empirical research, Digital Citizenship in a Datafied Society offers a new understanding of citizenship in an age defined by data collection and processing. The book traces the social forces that shape digital citizenship by investigating regulatory frameworks, mediated public debate, citizens' knowledge and understanding, and possibilities for dissent and resistance.

  • Waterstones Teaching Citizenship Education

    Price: £42.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: This is a complete guide to citizenship education which challenges teachers to enable pupils to make a difference to themselves and to society. Citizenship education was introduced into the curriculum as the subject to bring about a change in the political culture of a nation. However, without taking a radical approach to the teaching of this subject, its core values are likely to be lost. Teaching Citizenship Education introduces the central themes of the citizenship curriculum and evaluates the success of a number of delivery methods currently being used throughout the UK. Ralph Leighton adopts some of the insights and arguments provided by advocates of the radical and democratic approach to education to demonstrate the citizenship education can become a liberating and empowering force for change. He encourages readers to think about the nature of the subject and the experiences they are providing for their students, and provides a framework for how to go about creating something which really is more than just a subject. A companion website supports the text to ensure that the material remains up-to-date with current thinking and teaching strategies. This title is a 'must-have' for all those looking to teach citizenship education with confidence and imagination.

  • Waterstones Digital Disinformation in Africa

    Price: £21.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: In an era when hashtag campaigns like # Me Too and # Black Lives Matter capture global attention for victims of injustice, politicians and corporations are now spending billions employing Cambridge Analytica-type consultancies to manufacture disinformation - employing trolls, cyborgs and bots to disrupt dialogue and drown-out dissent. In the first study of its kind, this open-access book presents a range of case studies of these emerging dynamics across Africa, mapping and analyzing disinformation operations in ten different countries, and using innovative techniques to determine who is producing and coordinating these increasingly sophisticated disinformation machines. Drawing on scholars from across the continent, case studies document the actors and mechanisms used to profile citizens, manipulate beliefs and behaviour, and close the political space for democratic dialogue and policy debate. Chapters include examinations of how the Nigerian government deployed disinformation when the # End SARS campaign focused attention on police brutality and corruption; insights into how pro-government actors responded to the viral # Zimbabwean Lives Matter campaign; and how misogynists mobilized against the # Am I Next campaign against gender-based violence in South Africa. Through the documentation of episodes of unruly politics in digital spaces, these studies provide a valuable assessment of the implications of these dynamics for digital rights, moving beyond a focus on elaborations of the idea of 'fake news', and providing actionable recommendations in the areas of policy, legislation and practice.
