Policies for Community Communication
The Community Communication Section and the Global Media Policy Working Gro
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
agenda. Papers should focus on a certain platform (radio, print, TV, intern
a certain theme (e.g., digital broadcasting, privacy and surveillance,
copyright), or a certain type of grassroots media. They should identify rec
policy developments, threats and opportunities, and policy demands. We
encourage comparative analyses which consider the global context of localiz
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
a common discussion.
