How are complex global networks, flows, and governance eclipsing state-centric models of the world? What ethical relationships, repercussions, and responsibilities are involved in the study, representation, and practice of world politics? What are the best practices and most effective tools for influencing experts and engaging the public on critical global issues? These are the questions being addressed by the Global Engagement through Innovative Media Project at the Watson Institute, which has been recast with a third major grant from the Carnegie Corp. of New York and cast in a new light on a redesigned Global Media Project website. "With this renewal we intend to take a big next step: to analyze, judge, and produce global media that can help create the world we want, rather than reproduce the world we fear," says Professor James Der Derian, who is leading the initiative.
