Article: Views of older persons on elder abuse

Keywords: International, Western Europe, older people, abuse, discrimination, indicator, guide, print, online Prevalence studies concerning abuse of older persons have so far been restricted to developed nations. In developing countries, though, there is no systematic collection of statistics or prevalence studies, crime records, journalistic reports, social welfare records and small scale studies to provide evidence that abuse, neglect and financial exploitation of elders are widely prevalent. The study’s main approach involved the conduct of focus groups with older persons in the community, and with primary health care workers, in order to establish components of elder abuse as identified by older people themselves and by those forming the primary health care teams.

For example, since 2005 the overall number of women newsmakers rose only by 1 percent - up to 24 percent in total in the traditional media (newspapers, radio, television). The new digital age did not stimulate the change either, as only 26 percent of newsmakers online are women. Only 1 out of 10 news stories features women and women's issues as their topics. Also, there has been no rise in the number of female reporters in the last decade. There is only 37 percent female reporters around the globe.

Article: “Racism on the Internet”, written by Yaman Akdeniz, published by Council of Europe

Yaman Akdeniz’s book Racism on the Internet, published by Council of Europe, offers a lucid and perspicuous insight in the growing problem. Racism was a pressing social problem long before the emergence of the digital age. The advancement of digital communication technologies such as the Internet has, however, added a new dimension to this problem by providing individuals and organisations with modern and powerful means to propagate racism and xenophobia. The use of the Internet as an instrument for the widespread dissemination of racist content is assessed in detail by the author. The problem of racist content on the Internet has naturally prompted vigorous responses from a variety of agents, including governments, supranational and international organisations and from the private sector. This book also provides a detailed critical overview of these regulatory and non-regulatory initiatives. http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=UrSARW8XVYIC&printsec=frontcover&dq=yaman+akdeniz&hl=en&sa=X&ei=1FV8T-TPL9PR8QPp6PnODQ&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=yaman%20akdeniz&f=false
