  • Media and conflict in Cameroon today

    Media and conflict in Cameroon today

    Cameroon is on the verge of a separation. Two sets of people; the French and the English – speaking can no longer dialogue.

    The challenges facing community radio remain similar all over the Asia-Pacific region.

    ¿Radio para los sin voz o radio para los sin voz pública?

    El movimiento de lo que hoy llamaríamos Radios Comunitarias inicia su acción en Latinoamérica en los tiempos en que el sector popular comienza a adquirir presencia pública. Fines de los 60, principios de los ’70, fue una época que en diversos países se comenzaron a producir modificaciones institucionales que buscaban integrar a sectores populares a la sociedad, hasta entonces marginados de cuestiones laborales, sindicales, e incluso electorales. Un dato: en Chile, los analfabetos recién pudieron votar en la Parlamentaria de marzo de 1973.
