Gatewatching and News Curation: Journalism, Social Media, and the Public Sphere documents an emerging news media environment that is characterised by an increasingly networked and social structure. In this environment, professional journalists and non-professional news users alike are increasingly cast in the role of gatewatcher and news curator, and sometimes accept these roles with considerable enthusiasm. A growing part of their everyday activities takes place within the spaces operated by the major social media providers, where platform features outside of their control affect how they can post, find, access, share, curate, and otherwise engage with news, rumours, analysis, comments, opinion, and related forms of information.
Respect for diversity has been established as a core value for Community Psychology, as indicated in Chapter 1 Jason et al. Appreciating diversity in communities includes understanding dimensions of diversity and how to work within diverse community contexts, but also includes a consideration of how to work within systems of inequality. Community psychologists must be mindful of diverse perspectives and experiences when conducting research and designing interventions, as well as working to combat oppression and promote justice and equality. By working within a framework of cultural humility, this chapter attempts to provide a basic understanding of the dimensions of diversity that are most common in Community Psychology research and practice. Further, we explore how these dimensions contribute to complex identities and considerations for community practice.
The several groups and individuals including Adivasis, Dalits, Muslims and women have taken a step forward to protest against the existing inequalities. All of them were always of the opinion that they possess equal rights as all other, being rightful citizens of a democratic country. The constitution lays down a list of fundamental rights that are available to all citizens equally.

Secondly, they have influenced the government to enforce these laws.

Abstract: After having reviewed some of the most widely used empirical indicators of social justice and well-being, we discuss the shift from utilitarianism to egalitarianism in the philosophical debate on distributive justice, the Science and Technology Study and feminist approaches to social justice, and account for recent efforts in empirically mapping subjective well-being. We draw on these approaches to evaluate the efficacy of different economic systems in bringing about social justice and well-being. Among other things we focus on the experience of the Nordic countries in achieving high levels of economic development combined with social equality. We argue that the basic tenets of their model can be used in developing countries.

This book brings together an international selection of prominent researchers at the forefront of this development. They reflect on the issue of individuality in the group and on how thinking about social identity has changed. Together, these chapters chart a key development in the field: how social identity perspectives inform understanding of cohesion, unity and collective action, but also how they help us understand individuality, agency, autonomy, disagreement, and diversity within groups. Culture is a dynamic system of collectively held meanings and practices that are maintained and modified over time. Nevertheless, individuals who contribute to the maintenance of culture do not share all available cultural knowledge with everyone else. Culture is the sum of what various people share with others within a society with whom they also share common social identities.
