Information-psychological warfare as a means of protecting the national interests of the state

Author: D. N. Kravtsov

Communicology. 2017. Vol.5. No.3
Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA). Moscow, Russian Federation.

Annotation: the article considers the phenomenon of information-psychological weapons as an independent means of conducting information and psychological wars, used to achieve geopolitical goals and protect national interests. Information-psychological warfare is presented as a form of information confrontation, carried out at the communicative level through the use of means and methods of information-psychological influence on the mass consciousness for the purpose of its modification. These means and methods, acquiring the functional properties of weapons, are used by the opposing sides to solve internal and external political problems. One of the main types of information and psychological weapons is propaganda, and the analysis of contemporary military and political conflicts allows us to talk about the formation of a new kind of information and psychological weapons – information-simulated impact.

Key words: information and psychological weapons, information confrontation, information and psychological impact, national security, protection of national interests.

Structure of the conflict as a negative communication process in the educational space

Author: Dinara M. Shakirova

Communicology. 2017. Vol.5. No.3
Kazan State Energy University.

Abstract: The study of conflicts in the school environment emphasizes the complex dynamics of change, in which the social formation of modern schoolchildren is taking place. The article reveals the negative communication processes between pupils and teachers as subjects of the educational process. The structure of the conflict is viewed from both theoretical and applied points of view. An analysis of the theoretical aspects of the issue showed that in the first case the structure is the basis for the existence of a conflict that forms it as a dynamically interrelated integrated system. As components of the structure, the following elements are taken: 1) the conflict situation as a concatenation of life circumstances and the intersection of the interests of individuals and social communities, which by their behavior form the prerequisites for a possible clash between them; 2) the conflicting parties, in which both individual individuals and social groups can act; 3) the situation in which the confrontation of the conflicting parties is unfolding; 4) a problem that requires its solution and acts as a determinative cause. The application aspect of the issue was uncovered with the help of the author's sociological research conducted in Kazan in 2016. The volume of the target sample was 345 respondents. The article presents an assessment of the students' socio-psychological situation in the classroom, as well as the availability of classmates with whom the respondents are in conflict relations. A rating of the main socialization agents from the environment of the adolescent who provide direct assistance in difficult life situations and shows the place of the teacher in it. This article discusses the existence and nature of the spread of such forms of conflict as fights, brawls, verbal abuse, beatings. The role of the social environment from which a group of «instigators» is formed is shown. The characteristics of the students who make up this group and the style of their behavior in the conflict situation are given.

Keywords: conflict, educational space, structure, school, pupil, teacher.

Abstract. In the modern world, the information society has gradually evolved into a digital one, finally translating communications into the virtual space of the global Internet. Large amounts of information (Big Data) are both an object of production activity, and a means of production. Under the new conditions, traditional marketing has undergone significant changes related to the cardinal transformation of behavioral characteristics of the consumer in the digital environment. Inevitably, the brand’s communication strategy also changed, as new points of contact with the buyer arose in the course of its product selection. The nature of interactions has moved into the plane of personal and partnership relations. Given the high speed of information dissemination in the Internet, any brand activity becomes a well-known practical instantly. In this situation, the brand’s representatives bear the burden of high responsibility for any action in the digital space. Today, the communication strategy of the brand has become socialized and has become more focused on personal interactive contacts with consumers.

Keywords: information society, digital communications, marketing, branding, communication strategy, social media, e-commerce, Internet.

The practice of application of social networks in the activities of bodies of state and municipal authorities (on the example of the Central Black Earth region)

Abstract: The article analyzes in detail established practice and especially the use of multimedia web platforms for example, social networking sites, in the activities of state and municipal authorities, as well as an assessment of the degree of the potential implementation of these technologies at different levels of management. Relevance of the research substantiates the high popularity of social media in Russia, active introduction of modern information technology in government agencies online, the need to develop and consolidate the normative indicators to objectively assess the social networking features implemented in the state and municipal employees. Social networks are considered as multimedia online services, forming and reflecting social interactions on the Internet. The potential use of special network technology will create entirely new channels of interaction between government and society, to do the work of state- power structures more open to develop relevant criteria for a comprehensive assessment of the activities of state and municipal authorities for each individual direction. The key problem in this area is the virtual absence of the regulatory tools and indicators set out, on the basis of which it is possible to analyze the effectiveness of the implemented features. This factor casts doubt on the overall feasibility of the use of additional resources, as the final results will be purely subjective. On this basis, the study makes recommendations and suggests some methods have already received practical reinforcement and tailored management.

Key words: public service, municipal service, public administration, management, social network, efficiency, performance evaluation, analysis, Central Black Earth region.

Performance criteria of the state management as a mechanism of communication of authority and society

Author: Achkasov A.V.

Communicology. 2017. Vol.5. No.2
ACHKASOV Artem Vladimirovich, the graduate student of Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration. Moscow, Russian Federation.

Abstract: The article considers the problem of criteria formation of the state management efficiency as the mechanism of communication of society and government. As the object of the study issues for legal requirement of criteria of efficiency were selected. The articlecontains the analysis of the possible structure of these criteria. Also identified are key risks in the process of sustainable development of the state, caused by the lack of uniform standards of efficiency of legislative activity, discusses the regulatory consolidation of these criteria. Performance criteria are universal channels of communication between government and society. On the one hand performance criteria are the expression of social interests of different social groups. On the other hand, performance criteria allow the authorities, based on the change of certain characteristics of performance evaluation, to adjust their activities, thereby increasing the stability of government institutions. The main criterion of the effectiveness of the legislature is the principle of professionalism in the implementation of the management. At the same time, in the system of government of the Russian Federation there are no mechanisms to enforce this principle, which in turn, creates risks for the normal functioning of channels of communication between government (the legislative) and society. The paper contains a proof of the thesis that the degree of efficiency of administrative activity of the legislature is directly dependent on the level of professionalism of the deputies. Therefore, in order to improve the efficiency of legislative bodies, there is an objective necessity to create a system of raising the level of professional development of the people’s representatives. The creation of such a system is possible by formation of special units in the structure of legislative bodies, whose tasks will include the organization of events to improve the professional level of deputies. Also, it is expedient the introduction of professional qualifications for the substitution of certain positions in the management
structure of the legislature. The process of introducing professional qualifications considered by the example of the State Duma of the Russian Federation.

Keywords: state management, professionalism, professional development, efficiency, efficiency criteria, the legislature.

Abstract: The peculiarities of the human activity in the modern society, titled so by postmodernism,
are characterized by its endless transformations in time and space, by incertitude and riskogenics of actions, by the lack of time resources; and so, there is a need to reconsider the traditional marketing approach to the communications of branding. Being revised from the perspective of the social system, branding achieves the potential of new insight and perspective management innovations.
Many people participate in the processes of branding within this system; and they have their own intentions and goals that often do not correspond to desires of the managers of the companies that promote the brands. The internal and external impacts on the branding system result in changes that can cause not only the emerging chaos but also self-development of branding system. The experience and intuition of the managing subject typically saves the branding system from becoming rigid, makes to accept and implement the creative and management solutions that seem to be absurd at first but then turn out to be productive. This type of ideas can be driven in particular by the information wars practice.

Keywords: postmodernism; brand; branding; social system of branding; marketing; self-development; soft power; linear/nonlinear management.
