9781783604623: Media Movements: Civil Society and Media Policy Reform in Latin America

More than ever before, social movements throughout contemporary Latin America are successfully influencing and shaping media policy and reform. Beginning at the turn of the twenty-first century, these powerful movements—using marches, occupation of space, social media organization, and more—have given voice to marginalized citizens of Latin America whose lives have been upset by the falsity of a globalized economy, and provide hope in the continued fight for reform and civic justice.
 
In their highly detailed study, María Soledad Segura and Silvio Waisbord scrutinize the goals, tactics, and impacts of civic movements across the region. Offering both a historical perspective and an in-depth analysis of the contemporary situation, Media Movements transcends simple conceptions of "the national" versus "the global" to reveal complicated processes of media policy-making and to evaluate the significance of local politicians and citizens, global figures, and legal frameworks. With up-to-date analyses of recent movements and their successes, Media Movements will appeal to anyone interested in civic activism, global democracy, and policy or media reform.

Review:

“A hugely important, unusually accessible and beautifully written book. It provides perhaps the most comprehensive and robust account that I have come across of the impact of civil society actions on media policy environments and is of interest to readers well beyond Latin America.” (Des Freedman, author of The Contradictions of Media Power)

“This analysis of media reform movements in Latin America provides an essential one-volume introduction to media policy on the continent; a must-read for anyone interested in media policy and power anywhere in the world.” (Sandra Braman, Texas A&M University)

“An important book for those interested not only in the role of the media in civic life, but also for those concerned with the role of social movement activists in contesting power and in fostering the democratic process both in Latin America and beyond.” (Tristan Anne Borer, author of Media, Mobilization, and Human Rights)

“A well-researched, richly explained, and lively presentation of the landscape of media activism in Latin America. Going far beyond arcane policy issues, Media Movements brilliantly demonstrates why media activism is foundational to the vitality and success of all democratic social movements.” (Andrew Calabrese, University of Colorado)

Winner (AEJMC-Knudson Latin America Prize 2017)
