Communication for Development and Social Change (Paperback)Jan Servaes (editor)
- We can order this
This volume follows the two-way horizontal model and increasingly makes use of many-to-many forms of communications to facilitate the understanding of people's perceptions, priorities and knowledge with its use of a number of tools, techniques, media and methods. It aims to give voice to those most affected by the development issue(s) at stake, allowing them to participate directly in defining and implementing solutions and identifying development directions.
Based on the assumption that authentic participation directly addresses power and its distribution in society, which often decreases the advantage of certain elite groups, the authors argue that structural and sustainable change necessitates the redistribution of power.
This collection offers perceptive insights and vivid examples to prove that the field of communication for development and social change is indeed vibrant.
