Die mediale Inszenierung von Amok und Terrorismus

Author: Frank J. Robertz

Genre: Psychology

Schulamokläufer und Terroristen sichern sich durch das kalkulierte Ausüben von Gewalt einen Platz in den Schlagzeilen der Weltpresse. Sie folgen damit einer bewährten Kommunikationsstrategie, die ebenso menschenverachtend wie durchschaubar ist. Dieses Kalkül der Täter geht insbesondere dann auf, wenn Medien die destruktiven Botschaften der Täter ungefiltert weitertragen. Sie verbreiten auf diese Weise Angst in der Gesellschaft, belasten die Opfer und liefern im schlimmsten Fall eine Inspiration für Nachahmer. Mit Hilfe von Erkenntnissen aus Psychologie, Kommunikationswissenschaft und Kriminologie zeigen die Autoren Möglichkeiten auf, schonend über derartige Taten zu kommunizieren. Ihre pragmatischen Leitlinien für einen konstruktiven medialen Umgang mit Gewalt erlauben es, die Gefahr von Nachahmungstaten zu verringern und das Leid der Opfer zu lindern.

Genre: Social Science

Was veranlasst Universitätsangehörige dazu, Kollegen und Kommilitonen zielgerichtet zu töten? Derlei Taten sind die identitätsbedrohenden, nicht-intendierten Nebenfolgen der Hochschulreformen - so das Ergebnis dieser erstmalig tiefergehenden Analyse von Amoktaten an Universitäten. Mit dem soziologischen Blick einer differenzierungstheoretisch angelegten Verflechtung von Handeln und Strukturen gelingt ein tiefer Einblick in die Folgen der gesellschaftlich und kulturell verankerten Ökonomisierung von Universitäten und in die dynamisch angelegte Sichtweise auf universitäre Amoktaten als letzte Form von Identitätsbehauptung.
