  • Issue Feb 2009 - Impact of Media Violence on Children
    • Abstract: Desai, Megha; Jaishankar, K
      The effect of media violence on children and youth is a prime topic of discussion among academics and researchers in the area. While many agree that media violence initiates aggression in children, some researchers argue that exposure to media violence does not necessarily cause aggression or desensitisation in children. In order to understand this long debate and arrive at an appropriate conclusion this article will begin by providing a brief literature review, and then look at current empirical research to determine what research says about the relation; both short-term and long-term, between media violence and aggressive and violent behaviour. It will then look at the widespread representation of violence in the media (television, films, internet, video games, etc) and present several examples on the same. It will also provide a brief psychological analysis on how media violence perpetuates aggression in children, to determine its effects. The article will then look at how individuals and society can counteract or make attempts to keep a check on the influence of media violence. It will end by answering the question, 'Is media really responsible for the initiation and expression of aggression among children'

  • Issue Feb 2009 - Poverty Correlates of Suicide Rates in Turkey: A Time
           Series Analysis
    • Abstract: Arabaci, Ozer; Aytac, Serpil; Bondy, Julian
      This article examines the relationship between economic factors and suicide, which is an important indicator of the social and economic wellbeing of the community, and is motivated by various psychological, social, economic and cultural factors. The main objective of the study was to explore whether suicide and self-harm behaviours can be seen across the population: in people who show no psychiatric symptomatology but may attempt suicide due to stressful life situations, as well as in many who are seriously ill with psychiatric disorders whose risk of suicide would also be increased during times of economic crisis.

  • Issue Feb 2009 - The Role of Community in Restorative Justice Conferencing
    • Abstract: Johns, Diana
      In examining the role of the community in restorative justice conferencing, this article seeks to highlight the critical aspect of conferencing which differentiates it as a mode of restorative justice: the involvement of supportive others of both victims and offenders; the engagement of a restorative community. Reflection on the nature of this community, and its role in the conferencing process, reveals both its functional and symbolic significance. Drawing on the findings of a study of conferencing for young offenders in Melbourne, Australia, between 2000 and 2003, a detailed picture of the role of the restorative community is presented, largely from the perspective of those most closely involved: young offenders and their families.

  • Issue Feb 2009 - The Police Strike and the Monash Royal Commission
    • Abstract: Ogilvie, Alan; Ogilvie, Beryl
      This article provides an insight into the circumstances which led to the Victoria Police strike of 1923 in which 636 police officers lost their jobs and an estimated 78,000 worth of damage was done by rioters and looters on the streets of Melbourne. The article further examines the subsequent Monash Royal Commission instigated by the Government to inquire into the police strike, as well as broader issues associated with police services at the time. The role of the Victoria Police Association is also explored, as are those of the Chief Commissioner and the Premier of the day.

  • Issue Feb 2009 - Parallels in Prejudice Forms of Regulation and Control
           over First Nations Peoples in Canada Compared to Wacquant's Peculiar
           Institutions for African Americans
    • Abstract: McCallum, Neil
      This article looks at the forms of control and regulation inflicted upon the Canadian First Nations peoples by the State. It draws upon the work conducted by Loic Wacquant, who has identified four 'peculiar institutions' in tracing the control that White Americans have exerted over the African American people. Wacquant discusses four institutions of control, which he identifies as slavery, Jim Crow or segregation, the ghetto, and the symbiotic relationship between what he calls the hyper-ghetto and the prison. This article contends that, while there are differences in the experiences of African Americans and Canadian First Nations Peoples, the two marginalized groups have experienced similar methods of social control and regulation by a White-dominated State. The article explores how the Canadian State has acted to contain First Nations peoples through the controls of segregation and incarceration. Over time Aboriginal people in Canada have experienced four institutions of control that are strikingly similar to those Wacquant has identified. These can be described as colonization, segregation through reserves and residential schools, segregation through urban ghettos and what Wacquant calls 'hyper-incarceration'. Primary and secondary sources of Canadian data regarding First Nations peoples are used to support the claim that government and its allied institutions have acted to control the lives of Aboriginal people with policies and procedures that have ensured their marginalization.

  • Issue Feb 2009 - Modern Islamic Terrorism and Jihad
    • Abstract: Elzain, Carol
      Terrorism has loomed in the public eye for centuries. However, since 9/11 modern terrorism has attracted a new public dimension. On an international and domestic scope, media and government bodies have identified that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were delivered by the hands of Islamic terrorists, namely Al-Qaeda (US Government 2002).1 According to Australian, American and British government officials and numerous international and domestic media reports, Al-Qaeda publicly claimed responsibility for 9/11 and other terrorist attacks such as the Bali, London and Madrid bombings (Al-Jazeera 2004, pp. 1-6; Gonzales 2006, p. 3; US Government 2002, pp. 1-49). Furthermore, many domestic and international mainstream Muslims have responded to 9/11 and other attacks by revealing their support of Al-Qaeda's hatred and violence towards the West (Tarakhil 2004, p. 1; Ziabi 2006, p. 5).2 It was here among these media and government reports that the concept of Jihad emerged as a pivotal religious concept that justifies terrorism. As a result, Islam has been placed in the forefront of controversy as a religion that creates terrorists, and Jihad has become the motivating religious concept that supports and encourages Islamic terrorism.

  • Issue Dec 2006 - Charles Le Brun: Nationalism, Passion and Visual Codes
    • Abstract: Wagner, Mark
      In this essay, I argue that Charles Le Brun's physiognomic sketches, along with his lecture, 'A Method to Learn to Design the Passions' (1668), sound three themes we find in the current discussions and evaluations of non-linguistic means of human communication: 1. the search for universal, natural expressions outside of language, inscribed on the body, can be read as underscoring the need for national (tribal) identity, 2. that passions and emotions link the body to the mind, and might be 'read' as the domain where nature meets culture, 3. that the power of visual, symbolic meaning-making does not disappear when print media become the dominant form of social exchange after Gutenberg's invention, but takes the pseudo-scientific forms of physiognomy, pathognomy and phrenology, in addition to the visual arts. These curious 'sciences' anticipate the emergence of our understanding of non-linguistic and trans-linguistic messaging, which takes place beside, astride and prior to words themselves.

  • Issue Dec 2006 - Conflict Prevention in the Post-independence Macedonian
           Context: What Do we Know'
    • Abstract: Ripiloski, Sasho
      Macedonia was the only republic of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to attain its independence from the 'land of the south Slavs' through peaceful means. Where the constituent parts of Slovenia and, in particular, Croatia and Bosnia- Herzegovina plunged into varying degrees of violent ethnic conflict, Macedonia made a relatively quiet transition to statehood. The fact that it did so, in spite of the prodigious internal and external threats confronting it, confounded popular wisdom, which held that an outbreak of violence in this poor, contested, multi-ethnic locale was inevitable with potentially catastrophic consequences, both regionally and beyond. Such fears prompted the international community to apply various conflict prevention techniques including the innovative use of 'preventive' peacekeepers within the Macedonian context. This, in turn, contributed to the mollification of the country's proximate, or near-term, threats. The outbreak of intra-state violence in 2001, however when Macedonia's largest minority, the ethnic Albanians, launched a low-level insurgency in the west and north-west of the country posed questions of the efficacy of the preventative strategies that had been applied over the preceding decade. Indeed, in this regard, the international community may have neglected Macedonia's structural, long-term needs. That is to say, it failed to ameliorate its underlying, long-term conflict conditions, if not by implication altogether misdiagnosing the threats facing the country at its independence. This review will provide an overview of some of the leading scholarly outputs on conflict prevention processes within the Macedonian milieu, with primary emphasis on the period of Yugoslavia's dissolution, highlighting the debates in this literature, and analysing the major points of divergence and convergence within this discourse.

  • Issue Dec 2006 - Equality or Inequality: Who gets Placed on to Home
    • Abstract: Martinovic, Marietta
      Home detention as a sanction has become an emerging force in the field of corrections throughout the Western world during the last two decades. A review of research has indicated that, at the outset, the correctional selection process associated with home detention programs itself may discriminate against offenders. From a qualitative content analysis of Western world studies, it emerges that in the selection process there are certain factors that are discriminatory; these include the fact that home detention is not available throughout all jurisdictions, co-residents have an ability not to give consent to an offender's placement on the program, and most importantly indigent offenders are usually unable to meet various mandatory financial requirements that are associated with these sanctions. On the other hand, contrary to early predictions and some studies' reports, an offender's gender, race, education, family status and age do not per se determine their placement on home detention. A closer examination of literature indicates that there are external reasons that can account for offenders with certain characteristics being more likely to obtain placement on home detention.

  • Issue Dec 2006 - Reconstituting the Nation: Reconciliation and National
           Consciousness in Timor-Leste
    • Abstract: Grenfell, Damian
      In December 2005, the Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation (CAVR) in Timor-Leste was finally closed by President Xanana Gusm o. Over the nearly four years of its duration, CAVR initiated a series of processes in an attempt to confront the horrific human rights abuses that occurred in the territory prior to and during the Indonesian occupation of 1975-1999. Pursued through community hearings and truth seeking, CAVR's stated objectives included the reintegration of perpetrators of violence and the restoring of dignity to victims. Clarifying the past and bringing victims and perpetrators together are amongst the more obvious ways in which such a commission can produce stability and social integration in a post-conflict society. Truth and Reconciliation processes also have socially integrative effects, in some ways distinct to a period of post-conflict reconstruction, that can be understood as originating in the practice of drawing people into a nationally constituted program. By examining the operations of CAVR, and drawing on thinkers of nationalism such as Benedict Anderson, a two-fold argument is made. Firstly, this paper argues that reconciliation processes can give rise to forms of temporal integration that are central in terms of shaping a national consciousness. Upon this, an argument is then made that this form of temporality is carried not just at the level of the abstract and disembodied, but also through the reframing of social relations constituted through face-to-face relations.

  • Issue Dec 2006 - A Job Well Done': Across-country Comparison of
           Workplace Wellbeing among Prison Staff
    • Abstract: Bondy, Julian; Mesko, Gorazd; Aytac, Serpil; Eryilmaz, Mehmet; Bayram, Nuran
      In many countries throughout the world, the justice sector is characterised by high levels of staff turnover, often associated with the particular stresses embedded in the criminal justice working environment. This phenomenon is, in many countries, most acutely manifested in the prison sector. This study focuses on the Turkish and Slovenian prison sectors and compares results with identical studies undertaken in both countries. This paper utilises the Job Effective Wellbeing Survey (JAWS) to explore job satisfaction (JS) of staff in Turkish and Slovenian prisons. The intent of this study is to investigate whether there are statistically significant differences between the JS levels of prison officers in these two countries, and to explore the role of national culture within these results. This study has a number of unique features. It is the first study that compares the JS of prison staff in Turkish and Slovenian contexts. It is also one of the few known studies that has focused on JS utilising the JAWS survey instrument for prison staff specifically. Finally, this study provides a research base for further international research focusing on prisons as workplaces, and provides opportunities for cross-cultural comparisons.
