seven-day period, DRAGAN NIKOLIĆ beat Galib MUSIĆ, a 60-year-old detainee by, among other things, kicking him and beating him with a metal pipe.

The Ivoirian Crisis of 2002–7 was accompanied by a media war which has been so virulent that observers have at times labelled Ivoirian media as ‘hate media’ ( Witcher, 2006 ). The vigorous public debate has also taken place on relatively new platforms outside established information channels, such as popular music ( Schumann, 2013 ) and open-air public discussion sites called parlements and agoras ( Bahi, 2003 ). As Dina Ligaga observes with reference to Kenya, the ‘internet provides alternative routes of expression of popular culture

Globalization theory and India

: this is true of music and housing styles as much as it is true of science and terrorism, spectacles and constitutions’(Appadurai, 1990).

answer to and for individuals out of friendship and faith – out of responsibility, which is required for Ismet Dedić and Galib Musić, but also to Dragan Nikolić, who killed them at Sušica. This is the imperative to answer to you, Stojan Sokolović, to answer to Sead Sinanović, to Osman Osmanović, buried at Srebrenica by units of the Zvornik Brigade that Dragan Obrenović sent for that purpose. This is the imperative to answer to Dragan Obrenović, who also found the guts to answer for himself – to stand exposed and undone – to say, ‘yes I did this, and I did that

Yared Music School, and Theatrical Art Department under the newly formed Skunder Boghossian College of Visual and Performing Arts ( Addis Ababa University, 2011 ). Although artists from different parts of the country have the opportunity to meet and transfer ideas, there is a lack of international exchange with those outside the country. This presents a void in the artistic dialogue enjoyed by many art students in Europe and America, who have professional networks and opportunities such as student exchange schemes.

Furthermore, Held makes clear that those in control of ‘vast amounts of productive or financial power’ will have to be treated ‘unequally’. Indeed the process of ‘alleviating the conditions of the least powerful while restricting the scope and circumstances of the most powerful – would apply to a variety of areas marked by systematic inequality (from wealth and gender to race and ethnicity)’. 10 All of this would be on an experimental basis – ‘the “music of the future” can only be composed in practice’. 11 It would also, necessitate at times the stepping outside of

He lay in his dressing gown and pyjamas While they dusted the dresser for fingerprints And then shuffled backwards across the garden With notebooks, cameras and measuring tapes. They rolled him up like a red carpet and left Only a bullet hole in the cutlery drawer: Later his widow took a hammer and chisel And removed the black keys from his piano.4 Lost Lives, that monumental listing by David McKittrick and his colleagues of all those
