    Big data analytics and the right to privacy
    My work addresses communication rights in the context of the widespread growth and expansion of the Internet. In particular, I focus on privacy rights in the context of Internet-based data collection and analysis (big data analytics). By: Jenifer Sunrise Winter

  • Confianza y realidad

    Confianza y realidad
    Poder contar con un buen margen de confianza permite que la comunicación llegue a ser aceptada como creíble. La confianza hace más laxos los requerimientos de verosimilitud, los que no siempre se requieren de manera explícita sino más bien se dan por sentados. By: Carlos A. Valle

  • Communication rights in theory and practice

    Communication rights in theory and practice

    A good entry point for newcomers to the idea of communication rights is to bounce it against the idea of freedom of expression.

    Most people believe they understand the basic of freedom of expression. It also ranks among the sacrosanct foundation stones of all human rights. It is contained in numerous international Treaties, Conventions and agreements, and enshrined, in varying formulations, in virtually national constitution and legislation. The most frequently cited reference point is to Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, endorsed by every member of the United Nations:

  • Communication rights help empower migrants

    Communication rights help empower migrants
    Freedom. Democracy. Justice. These are a few concepts that many migrants feel are alien once they land in a country that is not their own. A feeling of insecurity sets in as they navigate their immediate surroundings while trying to understand and adjust to a new culture, language and life.

  • Genre, politiques et pratiques dans les médias au Bénin

    Genre, politiques et pratiques dans les médias au Bénin
    Les femmes représentent la majorité de la population béninoise, mais elles sont les moins connues. Elles drainent la foule lors des grands regroupements à la place publique, mais elles n’ont pas droit à la parole. Elles détiennent le nerf de l’économie nationale pour être au premier rang des activités marchandes, mais elles n’ont pas voix au chapitre dans les instances de prise de décision. Elles ont un goût assez prononcé pour la culture et le maintien de la paix mais elles en bénéficient souvent trop peu parce que, victimes de plusieurs formes de violences. Avec un sens très élevé de la notion du bonheur, elles en subissent généralement le revers. Les femmes, puisque c’est d’elles qu’il s’agit, sont souvent absentes là où elles sont censées donner de la voix pour leur plein épanouissement et pour l’équilibre de la société. Si le continent africain est généralement concerné par ce phénomène, le cas béninois est plus parlant. Access

  • El derecho a la nacionalidad y el periodismo ciudadano

    El derecho a la nacionalidad y el periodismo ciudadano
    Las redes sociales se han evidenciado como instrumentos idóneos para acompañar procesos de reivindicación de derechos, dando paso a un creciente movimiento de ciudadanas y ciudadanos que se han empoderado de esas plataformas para lograr adhesiones, movilizar y mantener informada a la población de las incidencias que experimentan esos espacios de reclamación.

  • Communication rights in a post-war country are a precondition for sustainable development

    Communication rights in a post-war country are a precondition for sustainable development
    Is it possible to create an open community space so that people can freely speak and contribute to post-war reconciliation? This was the question a group of young people started to think about in community radio in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the late 1990s. At that time access to the internet was limited, but we soon discovered the AMARC community radio charter and it served as starting point for new ideas. By: Amra Selesković

  • No democracy without freedom of expression for Indigenous Peoples

    No democracy without freedom of expression for Indigenous Peoples
    On January 20, 2015, the town of Santa Eulalia Huehuetenango, Guatemala became the centre of an unfortunate and too common violent sequence of events targeting community journalists. The local community radio station Radio Snuq Jolom Konob was reporting about the national police terrorizing local residents during their search for “agitators.” The local authorities responded by shutting down the radio station.

    Media Development 2016/1 Editorial

    A quarter of a century ago, in an essay published in the journalReligion and Society, Michael Traber wrote:

    “Communication, both public and private, is a fundamental human right and, as such, the precondition for other human rights, because communication is intimately bound up with what it means to be human. The freedom to speak and to publicize, and to create works of communication (cultural goods), is not only an essential component of human dignity and cultural identity, but it is also necessary for any progress in other rights.”1
