Communicative Democracy: New Ways to Citizenship Participation
To democratize communication has been a historic concern in critic communication studies in Latin America. However, characteristics currently assumed by media/citizens/information relation, from mediation processes at a public level, have led prior media which think in democratizing actions in media to crisis and have made possible - at the same time- the emergency of novelty experiences in this field.
This paper will present some characteristics of media/citizens/information relation in current Latin-American democracies, and analyze –in general terms, limitations presented in prior ways of thinking democratizing actions in the field of communication media. It will also present central research aspects on organizations’ experiences which are stated as a recently communication democratization objective (media social watch, citizen watch).
