Abstract: I argue that states that are engaged in rivalries with other states externalize these lessons to states they are not engaged in a rivalry with. States engaged in rivalries learn through a diffusive process of interactions (see Linebarger 2015; also, Vasquez 2014) that they then externalize to their interactions with other states. In this paper, I examine MID initiation and escalation by states engaged in rivalries (Thompson, 2000) with other states. Specifically, I look at Latin American states from 1816-2010 and find that states engaged in rivalries with one another are highly likely to externalize these “lessons” to other states in the international system. Similar to Nevin’s (1996) findings that states select into conflict based on previous success, this externalization of conflictual interactions stems from prior exposure to rivalrous behavior. This is an important finding in the conflict process literature because it provides evidence for the causal claim that prior conflictual interactions influence state behavior to engage in more conflict.

Abstract: By adopting an ethnographic approach to research, this paper analyses how the OSCE and the UN are evaluating their conflict prevention capabilities through lesson learning exercises. The paper focuses on divergences of views expressed by different member states and departments of the two organizations to elaborate a surprising paradox: While debates at the political level reflect the view that the warning-response gap is ultimately determined by the presence/or lack of political will to act, lesson learning exercises taking place in some department and units of the two organizations highlight the importance of process, structures and communication. Consequently, this paper argues that the enhancement of warning mechanisms, and warning communication in particular would have a positive impact on the warning-response process, even without a change in the executive structures. It also recommends a transformation of OSCE’s and UN’s ongoing political review of conflict prevention measures to circumvent the destructive hostility of those member states who want neither a stronger OSCE nor a more powerful UN.

Abstract: Technological developments in communication and information have increased the access to data and knowledge. They have also promoted interaction between individuals, creating new ways of teaching and learning. Among the innovations in education, the Open Educational Resources (OER or REA abbreviation in Portuguese) are of special relevance, and in Brazil, the Teacher's Portal is one of them, it is Latin American Educational Portals Web (RELPE) member. This Portal includes seven broad areas; one of them is the “Lesson Space”, where the lessons are created and published for all the courses, including music class.

Different concepts defined by the literature are considered: new technologies of information and communication (BLURTON, 1999; CMSI, 2003, 2005; GUTTMAN, 2003; UNESCO, 2005); society of knowledge (DRUCKER, 1969; STEHR, 1994; CASTELLS, 2000; HARGREAVES, 2004; UNESCO, 2005) and open educational resources (REA-Br, 2011; ROSSINI, 2010; UNESCO, 2002). This research study aims to identify the ideas that guide the teaching and learning in music within the “Lesson Space” at the Teacher's Portal from the Brazilian Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC), identify the content, objectives, activities and resources are used in music classes made available at the Portal; How and why? In addition, to analyze the comments and how users perceive those classes.

The methodology used is a qualitative research and document analysis, it is to describe, to analyze and interpret documents, in order to answer research questions.

To carry out the selection of documents to be analyzed research should adopt the following procedures: observation, searching and analyzing the Portal; selection of music lessons; organization; analysis to be defined according to criteria based on the objectives of the research, the literature and the rules of creating classes Portal; interpretation and writing results.
The research is the first phase: search and analysis portal. This allows you to filter the search by Modality, study level, Curriculum Component and theme. These topics are related to the concept of language in the defending National Curriculum for Secondary Education (PCNEM).

We expect to encourage the reflection and discussion of the music class in the context of new technologies, and to promote socialization experiences and innovation in the music class, from the use of the Teacher’s Portal.

Key words: Teacher's Portal, “Available Space”, Open Educational Resources (OER), Learning and teaching of music, school education (Primary and Secondary Education).

Abstract: The paper aims to examine the strongholds and changes in the moral universe of Bulgarian society from the point of view of two well-known films: ‘The War of the Hedgehogs’ (1979) and ‘The Lesson’ (2014). Both movies portray the life in the Bulgarian middle school with its moral dilemmas and complex connections to the outside world of the grownups. The two movies also share a memorable scene in which a teacher is forced to give a student a much higher grade than he deserves. However, the resemblances end here. ‘The War of the Hedgehogs’ is a typical produce of the socialist realism, where all conflicts, even the most complicated ones, are finally resolved to the best interest of everyone involved, so that life can continue its balanced everyday run. In ‘The Lesson’ the struggle for justice quickly surpasses the boundaries of the schoolyard and is played within the unforgiving world of the parents. In only a few days the moral universe of the main character, the English language teacher, Nadezhda is altered for good. What looks as ethically wrong and unforgivable at the beginning of the movie – stealing somebody else’s money, becomes a pending necessity in the life of the young teacher in the final scenes of the film. The question is: what is the cultural significance of the lessons in ethics given by the two movies?
