    Brand ISIS: Interactions of the Tangible and Intangible Environments2018In: Journal of Political Marketing, ISSN 1537-7857, E-ISSN 1537-7865, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 322-353Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates how the infamous terrorist organization Islamic State (ISIS) uses branding and political marketing as means to increase their intangible value and assets in order to influence their tangible (operational) capacities. In order to investigate the logic of a terrorist organization as a political actor a perspective of political communication is applied as a means to understand more clearly the propaganda of the word and the propaganda of the deed. A systematic communication approach is used to raise awareness of the ISIS brand in order to differentiate the organization and to create a greater sense of credibility and authenticity in an increasingly crowded marketplace of terrorist organizations seeking for attention, support, and fear. Aspects of political marketing are used in order to create sets of relationships of attraction and avoidance with different target audiences. The 15 issues of the magazine Dabiq are examined and analyzed within this approach. However, intangible communication and tangible realities do affect each other. This is evident when there is a swing from military victories to military defeats, which impacts on the quality and quantity of communicational materials produced by ISIS.

    Coinservatism, Populism and the Crisis of Liberal Democracy: New Political Relationships in the Making?2018In: Acta Prosperitatis, ISSN 1691-6077, Vol. 9, p. 23-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article provides an analysis of the contemporary conservative/populist challenge to liberal democracy, thereby provoking a crisis in the liberal order at the national and global levels. The analysis is undertaken via a political marketing perspective, which is used to make sense of empirical materials drawn from academic and popular sources. A clear series of common points emerge suggesting that there is an evident challenge mounted against the hegemonic liberal order, characterized by a number of recurring crises they have  been  incapable  of  managing  and,  thus,  giving  their opponents  a platform from which to rather successfully challenge their authority and influence. The opposing camps tend to shape their political offer to the public in terms of building the relationships with their voter based on opposing sets of norms and values, together with their vision of an ideal society.

    Digital Communication Disrupting Hegemonic Power in Global Geopolitics: New Media Shape New World Order2019In: Russia in Global Affairs, ISSN 1810-6374, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 108-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of digital communication has been given a lot of credit and influence in its presumed power to bring about change in society, on a local or national or global level. When this presumed power for change or disruption is applied to the existing world order, there is a more nuanced outcome. In the current global order, the United States remains the unipolar hegemonic power. However, it is becoming visibly weakened, much of the harm coming from the results of its own foreign policy actions that are more guided by values and norms, rather than interest. Digital communication plays a role in both defending the current world order and challenging it. It is done in a way that renders the traditional restraints and constraints of geopolitics impotent by making space and time irrelevant, and by opening up the potential for creating global networks and relationships.

    Introduction: the image of Islam in Russia2019In: Religion, State and Society, ISSN 0963-7494, E-ISSN 1465-3974, Vol. 47, no 2, p. 174-179Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Russia has a long, complicated and, at times, contradictory relationship with Islam and Muslims. Islam is classified as one of the ‘traditional’ religions, along with Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism. Throughout Russia’s history across the centuries, the efforts by the state and Muslims to define their relationship have led to contradictory outcomes. This special issue grew out of a conference that took place in 2016, seeking to explore the complicated nature of the image of Islam in Russia from a multidisciplinary perspective. A collection of six contributions explore how Islam is viewed and projected in the public and media sphere in contemporary Russia, including state attempts to ‘manage’ the development of Islam, initiatives to transform the public image of Muslims and the charitable work of a mosque at the local level.

    Putin's International Political Image2019In: Journal of Political Marketing, ISSN 1537-7857, E-ISSN 1537-7865, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 307-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article concerns how publics perceive and relate to a foreign politician. There is no formal relationship between these groups as the publics have no ability to participate in national elections that could validate or detract the aura of legitimacy of the politician. Therefore the relationship could be more informal in nature and based upon perceived similarities and differences of held norms and values. President Vladimir Putin of Russia is a well-known (high profile) global political figure, which may mean a more intensely generated set of attitudes toward him as a political figure. There has been an overwhelmingly negative flow of information in mainstream mass media, especially after the Ukraine crisis. The question posed in the paper sets out to answer, given the negative coverage and associations, could any foreign (non-Russian) publics still like or admire him? The answer found is yes, there are in fact diverse sets of foreign publics like or admire his actual/perceived values and norms – for example his conservative values or his conflict with the US-led West.

    Syria: Propaganda as a Tool in the Arsenal of Information Warfare2019In: The Sage Handbook of Propaganda / [ed] Paul Baines, Nicholas O'Shaughnessy and Nancy Snow, Sage Publications, 2019, p. 443-460Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Propaganda is a mechanism of the information domain that attempts to shape and influence the cognitive domain concerning events and processes that are located in the physical domain. It is a very deliberate tool that is intended to mobilise public sentiment through creating an environment that is dominated by an emotional form of logic, often in a very binary ‘reality’ involving a series of radical opposites.

    The use of rhetoric is an essential element in the application of propaganda within the setting of information warfare, which forms of the basis of the appeals and emotional conditioning. This application has been witnessed in the Syrian conflict from the very beginning, where the propaganda of aversion (Assad – “bad”) is contrasted against the propaganda of attraction (‘rebels’ – “good”). Ultimately this concerns the various audiences’ perceptions and opinions of the Syrian war and especially the intangible aspects of political legitimacy/illegitimacy. Seeming ‘small’ or ‘trivial’ details are in fact key to influencing and persuading an audience to think and act in a pre-determined manner.

    This chapter will show the importance and relevance of the details that go into scripting the propagandistic narrative as a means of shaping the cognitive domain through distorted and manipulated material in the information domain, which in turn is used as a means to form public consent on a policy issue. Four newspapers have their content analysed in the first four days in the wake of an alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria. This content was consistent in nature and followed a propaganda role where media acted as an instrument of war.

    Tensions dans la région Baltique: une « Nouvelle » Guerre froide ?2020In: StratégiqueArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Les relations entre l’Occident et la Russie se sont rapidement aggravées, en particulier à la suite des événements survenus en Ukraine depuis 2014. Cette détérioration des relations se manifeste par le niveau renouvelé et accru de la concurrence et des conflits géopolitiques qui se sont produits simultanément dans la mer Noire et la mer Baltique. C’est une situation qui a des précédents historiques de régionalisme géopolitique durant la guerre de Crimée, la première guerre mondiale et la seconde guerre mondiale. La géopolitique se comprend par la gestion de la politique étrangère au travers de la maximisation de son potentiel et de ses possibilités, tout en limitant ceux d’un adversaire ou d’un concurrent. La concurrence est visualisée et comprise à travers la rhétorique utilisée par l’Occident et la Russie, en utilisant comme exemple la région de la mer Baltique décrite comme faisant partie de la Nouvelle Guerre froide.

    The Anatomy of a Moral Panic: Western Mainstream Media's Russia Scapegoat2019In: Changing Societies & Personalities, ISSN 2587-6104, Vol. 3, no 3, p. 189-206Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since 2014, there has been a very concerted campaign launched by the neo-liberal Western mainstream mass media against Russia. The format and content suggest that this is an attempt to induce a moral panic among the Western publics. It seems to be intended to create a sense of fear and to switch the logic to a series of emotionally based reactions to assertion propaganda. Russia has been variously blamed for many different events and trends around the world, such as the “destroying” of Western “democracy”, and democratic values. In many regards, Russia is projected as being an existential threat in both the physical and intangible realms. This paper traces the strategic messages and narratives of the “Russia threat” as it is presented in Western mainstream media. Russia is connoted as a scapegoat for the failings of the neo-liberal democratic political order to maintain its global hegemony; therefore, Russia is viewed as the “menacing” other and a desperate measure to halt this gradual decline and loss of power and influence. This ultimately means that this type of journalism fails in its supposed fourth estate role, by directly aiding the hegemonic political power.

    The Image of Islam in Russia2019Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Editors’ introduction: This special issue of Religion, State & Society is on ‘The Image of Islam in Russia’. We have been pleased to work with our guest editor Dr Greg Simons of Uppsala University in Sweden. Muslims in Russia take a wide range of approaches to expressing, institutionalising, and politically mobilising around Islam. These are furthermore negotiated with, resisted, managed, or refracted by the Russian state in varied ways, leading to a fascinating interplay at the intersection of this journal’s interests in religion, state, and society.

    Abstract [en]

    The manner in which public diplomacy is being practiced isconstantly evolving, new means are being developed to create politicalrelationships between states and international publics. Countriesare competing globally for the hearts and minds of internationalpublics in their quest for gaining and accumulating soft power. Thisquest is driven by the assumption that soft power gives countries thatpossess it advantages, such as a freer hand in foreign policy orattracting foreign investment. Russia is one of those countries thatis competing in the global arena, and have been developing theirtools of new public diplomacy. One of these tools is the creationand the use of NGOs, which are directed at creating an informationenvironment where Russian policy better placed to be realized.

    Sweden and the NATO debate: views from Sweden and Russia2019In: Global Affairs, ISSN 2334-0460, E-ISSN 2334-0479Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is a country that has a reputation and historical legacy as being “neutral” and working for peaceful solutions to different global problems after the bitter experiences in the 18th and 19th centuries that saw it fall as a regional power of the Baltic Sea region in a series of conflicts with the Russian Empire. Contemporary mainstream politics and society places itself firmly in the camp of global liberalism and the stressing the importance of the trans-Atlantic partnership, which influences how Sweden views its mission and approach to global affairs. Sweden’s centuries long policy of neutrality/non-alignment is being tested in an environment of deteriorating relations with Russia. This is most clearly seen in the NATO debate where a noticeable split is taking place in society along the lines of humanitarian values (those supporting neutrality/non-alignment) and “interests” (namely supposed security interests by the pro-NATO side).

    Abstract [en]

    At present, there is a strong public need for intergenerational communication in the digital environment in order to transmit cultural memory, which is operated by the older ("analogue") generation. This transmission makes it possible for the "digital" generation to perceive memory in the process of its socialization and awareness of cultural identity. The work is connected with the development of methodology and particular methods of studying the transformation of commu-nicative and cultural memory. Also, the work is focused on ways of cultural me-mory transmission from the "analogue" to the "digital" generations of Russians. The purpose of this work has let to a reference to three conceptually significant thematic blocks. First of all, based on the understanding of the memory theory, Ya. Assman and A. Assman concluded that at each moment of communication in the digital environment is used as a communicative-cultural memory, which pos-sesses the properties of syncretism and ensures both the integrity of perception and transformation, in contrast to the "frozen forms" of cultural memory. Secondly, the study of theories of media text modelling and strategies for organizing multime-dia narration allowed us to assess the expediency of using multimedia storytelling as the primary communication technology that is potentially in demand for inter-generational/social media communication. Third, based on the analysis of the specifics of media consumption by generations, the distinctive features of "ana-logue" and "digital" media generations have been revealed. It also highlighted the importance of transforming the competencies of journalists to work in the digital environment in the context of visualization. As a result, it was determined that the synergetic effect of the study of the transformation of communicative and cultu-ral memory, and its transmission would be achieved as a result of the application of social communication, cognitive and structural-semiotic methodological ap-proaches, socio-cultural and linguistic methods. The empirical research base in-cludes about 10 million words for web-metric analysis of social networks, more than 3,000 texts for discursive analysis. The formation of focus groups is carried out on the basis of classical criteria, taking into account data on the age of re-spondents and their involvement in the use of modern information services.

    The interaction of journalism and public relations in Russia: A self-perception2019In: Global Media and Communication, ISSN 1742-7665, E-ISSN 1742-7673, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 3-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an increasing amount written on the decline of professional journalism around the world. One of the factors that are used to illustrate the decline of journalism is the interaction and collaboration between journalists and public relations (PR) practitioners in the production of mass media news content. On a theoretical and conceptual level, the aims and goals of the two professions are quite different, even though there are a number of superficial similarities between these forms of mass communication. Studies of the interaction between journalism and PR in the United States reveal a certain underlying tension, yet simultaneous mutual dependency. An indicative survey was conducted across different cities in the Russian Federation to understand the perception of professional journalists and PR practitioners on the current level of interaction between their professions. The answers were remarkably similar and reveal a deep concern for the direction of journalism, which many viewed as being subordinated to PR.

    концепция «моральной паники» в современной медиареальности россии и запада: опыт восприятия с позициикоммуникативно-культурной памяти2018In: Znak, ISSN 2070-0695, p. 184-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The media audience builds relationships with the outside world, focusing on content, which, in fact,is an interpretation of reality. Media reality is constructed as a result of the selection of facts, the modelingof meanings and forms of information delivery. The concept of “moral panic” is increasingly usedby the media to model the political agenda of Russia and the West. Based on the analysis of 80 mediamaterials (40 Russian and foreign), the application of the concept in the formation of an actual politicalmedia reality is explored. The results of the work testify to the active implementation at the present timeof the concept of “moral panic” both in Russia and in the West. This can be identified by the collectivememory of the peoples of the countries surveyed as a new level of dissociation in the post-Soviet period,while political influence groups use constructed fears to distract the attention of the population fromunfavorable socio-economic conditions and to make unpopular management decisions.
