2010 International Association of Media and Communication Research
(IAMCR) Congress
Braga, Portugal from July 18 to 22, 2010.

Policies for Community Communication
The Community Communication Section and the Global Media Policy Working Gro
up
invite paper proposals for a roundtable on "Policies for Community
Communication". The purpose of the roundtable is to discuss the policy
situation for diverse types of grassroots-based, civil society-oriented and
self-organised media, from community radio to blogs, and to distill a polic
y
agenda. Papers should focus on a certain platform (radio, print, TV, intern
et),
a certain theme (e.g., digital broadcasting, privacy and surveillance,
copyright), or a certain type of grassroots media. They should identify rec
ent
policy developments, threats and opportunities, and policy demands. We
encourage comparative analyses which consider the global context of localiz
ed
and/or community-oriented media policy. Presentations at the roundtable wil
l be
short, and participants will try to develop key points of a policy agenda d
uring
a common discussion.

Guidelines for Participants
The paper proposal should include a paper title, as well as authors' names,
institutional affiliations and full contact information (mailing address, e
mail
address, and telephone numbers). Submissions in the authorsí native langu
age
(French and Spanish) must also include an English translation.
