(Format (not basic content) Updates July 28, 2022. I want to reference this post again, so I tweaked some of the introduction to feature the opening phrase and to make the short-links clear for related posts, etc.. My overall theme (this time) is to identify specific universities with specific relevant centers, and at each point, know what type of university (among the available types in the American system) you’re dealing with. I’m looking at Denver University currently.

I went looking for prior posts on the university system and found several, including this one a full six years ago!  

FYI, in July, 2016, I had no stable lease and had been forced into prolonged hotel-living instead (fiduciary abuse).  Since then, I’ve migrated out of state (for related and safety reasons as I enter my senior years) and for both June and July, 2022, I have AGAIN been forced into the hotel/transience situation. Any blogging I get done during this period is “pro bono,” and out of conscience only. I’ve been somewhat active on Twitter (less formal, easier to get some messages out) but publishing a series I started in May has been difficult from this condition.    //LGH)


Do You Know Your Social Science PolicySpeak? Can You Name Some:

University Centers / Key Professionals / BIG Foundation Sponsors / Related Networked Nonprofits

and a Basic Timeline Since at least The Moynihan Report (1965).


If you don’t, this post shows several of the terms, the centers and associated professionals, the foundations (coordinating with each other), at least a few of the associated nonprofits, and where HHS funding fits in.

This 11,700 word post is well worth reading. If you disagree on my connections between the various organizations and personnel, at least become aware of themthey are still influential today, as are the programs they’ve initiated and/or administered.  Call it the “Dewey Decimal System” (at least a labeling system by time, and some of the lingo) for Federal Family Design, the public/private-funded way. Call it what you like — it’s a good start at a historical roadmap.

[Other than adding this post title & link, a habit I adopted later, and this paragraph, I haven’t changed the post from its July 26, 2016 details.  LGH/June 21, 2017] [**Shortlink ending originally mis-labeled “-42P,”  Finally discovering this (3+yrs later, ℅ my Twitter thread referencing it) I corrected it to “-42K.//LGH, Oct. 8, 2019 ]

It’s Show-and-Tell time, we’ll start with the “Ford Foundation’s influence in sponsoring the Strengthening Fragile Families Initiative

THIS POST came from the middle of the following sequence.  It is a large section extracted from “Re-Organizing The World through International Institutes….” after publication.  In case you haven’t noticed, that’s how I work —  I write, I post, I review, I continuing considering and writing on the subject matters, which results in posts extracted from the middle.

The fabled “some day” maybe I’ll get a blog laid out differently so will not need to rely on the “One Main Page, Linear / Serial Installment” features of a blog.   And/or, get this into proper book format, maybe online, and hit the road with it (?? Maybe I’ll even catch up or run across some of the personnel I’ve been blogging who do this for a living — only on the public dole with private supplementation….).

As this post is basically almost complete, I’m putting it before publication of the third post in the other sequence,  “Munich,”  and the Strong Cities Network although that one’s just about ready to go as well.


Since “FRAGILE FAMILIES” is such a key phrase and policy, let along strengthening them (“Strengthening Fragile Families Initiative”) I start there, for the most part. …. which pretty much brings up the Ford Foundation.  But, it’s hardly operating solo in the overall cause — this is a COORDINATED Public/Private effort, with the end-game completely outsourced and privatized government, and what’s left looking like a legal system, pretty much in name only.

While that’s kind of obvious (if one pays some sustained attention to various centers, or nonprofits), a simple and interesting example below in the funders of a 1995 nonprofit that calls itself “the policymaking arm of the Strengthening Families Initiative“** does tend to crystallize the “many coordinated into one purpose” funding that larger philanthropies do.  They pick causes, and then target midsized (including community) funding by cause, and get public funds involved too.

Obviously terrorist events may happen while one is in the middle of doing something else.  Also true of the miniature versions of this, domestic violence incidents, which can also be terrorizing in that they’re not just single-events, they tend to be ongoing, deliberately unpredictable, and with the ultimate goal (typically) of control and exploitation.  There’s a lot more in common with the two scenarios — and with the state’s response to countering them, I just learned today while reading a US Ambassador’s speech in Berlin on how some of the “best practices” in preventing radicalization of their own legal citizens.

The Global Campaign Against ISIL, ….continued
Annual Meeting of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution
The Islamic State – A Global Threat Berlin, May 2, 2016 Ambassador John B. Emerson


Speaking of Strong Cities, and Munich, most of this post (obviously not the part referring to the shootings) written yesterday 7/21/2016 revisited “Strong Cities Network” only because I got two of the similar but not identical sounding international institutes for strategic studies and peacemaking dialogues for a more sustainably developed world presided over by — of course — the UN (Anglo/American/European primarily) ….and both of these were also headquartered in a London-based charity

 

“The SCN is made up of mayors, municipal-level policy makers and practitioners united in building social cohesion and community resilience against violent extremism in all its forms. The global network is currently made up of 56 cities with membership set to grow to around 200 by the end of 2017. Membership is completely free of charge.”



 

The shooting happened Thursday evening, but by the time I learned about it, I had already written this below.  Because of the type of studies I’m doing, including curiosity about such things as why the United States Department of Justice does not provide for the public a functional Grants Distributed database (there appears to be some disjunct, inflexible pages listing grants by year AND by title or type — but nothing comprehensive or really functional for the public to study any of the various funded programs, so many of them aimed at PREVENTING violence).
This is an announcement from “De.USEMBASSY.gov” I believe the website would be US Department of State.

I’ve quoted it also further below.

U.S. Embassy Berlin Security Message for U.S. Citizens:  Travel Alert Europe

June 1, 2016

As part of the State Department’s continuous efforts to provide Americans travelling abroad with information about relevant events, we are alerting U.S. citizens to the risk of potential terrorist attacks throughout Europe, targeting major events, tourist sites, restaurants, commercial centers and transportation.  The large number of tourists visiting Europe in the summer months will present greater targets for terrorists planning attacks in public locations, especially at large events.  This Travel Alert expires August 31, 2016. ……

And now that “MUNICH” has happened, an addendum at the bottom of this US State Dept. message (latest update, 21:33 presently, shows at top of page; I switched the only other one on there, “19:52”, to first place).

Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens: Shots Fired at Multiple Locations in Munich

[19:52] Media is reporting shots fired at the Olympia shopping mall in Munich, Germany, resulting in casualties.  There are subsequent reports of shots fired in other locations in Munich. There is a major police operation underway.  Mass transit around the city is also reported to be halted during the police operation.

[Update 21:33] Media are reporting that Munich authorities have declared an emergency using the city’s smartphone warning system. Residents have been warned not to leave their homes:  For your own safety, avoid squares and streets: perpetrators are on the run. Train and bus transport suspended. Turn radio and TV on.  Munich’s mainline railway station is closed, and mass transit remains halted.

U.S. citizens are advised not to come to the U.S. Consulate due to the uncertain security situation.  Continue to shelter in place, contact your family members to let them know you are safe, and follow the instructions of police and emergency personnel.  Continue to monitor local news stations for updates.  Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.


 

Since this is an added section to my post, I’ve given it the different background color you can see starting with the first article.  Below that background color is the previously-written post on the Rutgers Institute for International Peace “Partners Page” with the material I’d added on Strong Cities Network last night, as a matter of general public interest

This section has: four brief news links on “MUNICH” (ABC News, The Telegraph.UK, the Guardian.UK, and (link only) The Financial Times (published I believe also in the UK), and Two on Strong Cities Network (A Briefing Paper #2, and a May 2, 2016 speech posted at US Department of State (I think it is) — same site as the warning to US Travelers’ above — on the Global Threat of ISIL by a US Ambassador to Germany, and probably given in Berlin.  It has some important information and indicators I felt readers should know — which ties into the family counseling / family law sector practices over here, vis a vis “Violence Prevention.” But I will discuss those parts separately.
