European policymakers like to lecture the rest of the world on air pollution. Asia, and China in particular, is a favorite target for criticism. Indeed, it sometimes seems as if no major environmental conference is complete without a presentation by European policymakers on their continent’s supposed “best practices,” which the rest of the world should emulate. When it comes to air pollution, however, Europe might consider doing less talking and more listening.

L’état inquiétant du monde actuel et son rapport au numérique sont peu pensés sous l’angle de leurs liens les plus profonds. C’est que la partition des cerveaux, comme celle des ordinateurs, fonctionne bien: elle permet au projet despotique de se poursuivre avec une vigueur exceptionnelle. De fait, jamais la colonisation des esprits, des imaginaires et des corps n’a été rendue aussi massive et performante entre les mains d’un tout petit nombre. Ce livre s’efforce ainsi de rappeler comment le numérique a pu envahir nos vies: un «virtuel» qui en est venu à évincer le «réel» jusqu’à prendre toute sa place

En premier lieu, et semble-t-il à l’origine du terme, on appelle "cyberville" les projets gouvernementaux, privés et/ou de la société civile qui visent à créer la représentation sur le Web d’une ville déterminée. La cyberville se limite alors à un portail comportant les institutions, les informations et les services, les communautés virtuelles et les représentations politiques d’un espace urbain déterminé.

Journalists in the Western Balkans work in a hostile environment that directly affects their ability to do critical, independent reporting essential to a democratic society, Human Rights Watch said. The 69-page report, “A Difficult Profession: Media Freedom Under Attack,” documents physical attacks and threats, including death threats, punitive lawsuits, and smear campaigns targeting journalists in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, and Serbia. The report is based on interviews with 86 journalists, most of whom report on sensitive issues such as war crimes and corruption, in the four Western Balkan countries.
