My research and project work focus on the value of scientifically validated communications for business and society, particularly addressing serious issues underlying the debate over global sustainability and centering the innovative new discipline of communication ethics, ‘a philosophy for the information age. Recently, I produced an innovative online text, Citizen Science, employing a digital logic I developed in 2001. This text is supported by online learning tools to deliver digital self-education programmes for world citizens in order to move themselves towards an updated and sustainable social contract grounded in science.

As a founding member of the Institute of Communication Ethics (2001-2008), I undertook the role of coordinating its positioning as a world-leading academic network and centre for a new social science discipline. The group of leading professors and media academics behind the Institute recognised the important multidisciplinary implications of this relatively recent field of human inquiry and have since updated the agenda for communication studies within and between hundreds of University departments.

My Ph.D. research at Radboud University (NED) was completed in 2013. It reported a study of dialogue methods employed by seventy-three multinational corporations and the research concluded with an evaluation of dialogue and participation as the underpinning practice required by democratic systems. The findings resulted in a number of important innovations, forming a coherent programme subsequently channelled into education initiatives such as the UN ‘Education for Sustainable Development’ programme.

Wikipedia Snap-Shot

Mark Lombardi (March 23, 1951 – March 22, 2000) was an American Neo-Conceptualist and an abstract artist who specialized in drawings attempting to document financial and political frauds by power brokers, and in general “the uses and abuses of power.

Lombardi called his diagrams Narrative Structures.. They are structurally similar to sociograms – a type of graph drawing used in the field of social network analysis, and to a lesser degree by earlier artists like Hans Haacke. Other important influences on Lombardi were philosopher Herbert Marcuse,, and visualization expert Edward Tufte

In Lombardi’s historical diagrams, each node or connection was drawn from news stories from reputable media organizations, and his drawings document the purported financial and political frauds by power brokers. For instance, his 1999 drawing George W. Bush, Harken Energy and Jackson Stephens, ca 1979–90 shows alleged connections between James Bath, the Bush and bin Laden families, and business deals in Texas and around the world.

The Essence of Lombardi’s Work

The small circles in his drawings identified the main players — individuals, corporations and governments — along a time line. The arcing lines showed personal and professional links, conflicts of interest, malfeasance and fraud.

Solid lines traced influence, dotted lines traced assets and wavy lines traced frozen assets. Final denouements like court judgment, bankruptcy and death were noted in red.

Reading several newspapers a day, he culled his information entirely from published sources, keeping track of the articles with a card file that eventually held over 12,000 cards.

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT, writing my dissertation on long term planning and strategy making during times of systemic change.

Large-scale participatory futures systems blog

Crisis as catalyst.  Risk as renewal.  Classical strategic planning is based upon the assumption of a slowly changing future. This assumption is wrong.  Climate change, technological innovation, resource challenges, political and social volatility, and increasingly frequent natural and technological disasters point to a newly emerging context for strategic planning. The U.S. Army War College calls this the “VUCA Context“; Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.
