Book chapter

Cosmopolitan Vision, Global Responsibility and Local Reporting in Ukraine

Baysha O., Calabrese A.

This chapter will discuss the role of journalists in forming a global culture of responsibility by presenting a case study on how Ukrainian reporters perceive their cosmopolitan ‘duty’. The chapter will show that, contrary to the normative expectations of many Western theorists, non-Western journalists may remain indifferent to global problems just because they do not perceive themselves as members of the global community. The chapter will argue that the inability or unwillingness of local journalist to relate local issues to global concerns is an important problem of the globalized world. For, if journalists do not see global issues as problems of their communities, how can they orient the member of those communities to a cosmopolitan outlook?
