(blogspot.com)
  • Littlejohn rejected media perceptions in the West that the one-child policy is waning, countering that "when the Chinese communist party tweaks the policy, makes a minor adjustment to it, for some reason that fact gets reported as 'China is abandoning the one-child policy,' which is not true. (blogspot.com)
  • Littlejohn said that the coercion used to enforce the one-child policy serves the double purpose to also keep the communist party in place in China, stating that when the policy was initiated, the birth rate was about 5.9, whereas now it "more like 1.7, which is well below 2.1. (blogspot.com)

  • broader
  • What media advocacy and social marketing do together is provide a broader framework for thinking about the context and determinants of behaviors among groups of people (a public health perspective), identify the leverage points through a marketing analysis focused on the 4Ps, and then focus on the audiences that are critical for success (public opinion leaders, media gatekeepers, elected officials). (blogs.com)
  • behaviors
  • Others like Stephen Dann, and at times myself, have decried the knee-jerk reaction to fashion regulation to govern individual behaviors before attempting to use other social marketing tools (and here is maybe where I diverge, and now digress). (blogs.com)
  • As the COMMIT project went on, the idea of media advocacy came front and center - use the media not for education, but to set an agenda for large-scale change by calling attention to the social and environmental determinants of the initiation, maintenance and cessation of smoking behaviors (stop blaming the victim).
