El professor Philip Kizberger publicó el artículo Against the current: The emergence of a media democratization policy
agenda in Latin America.
Abstract: In Latin America, the role of the media in democratic societies
has recently become the subject of public debates, struggles and political
mobilizations that have denaturalized the existing media order and established
a distinct policy agenda oriented towards media democratization. This
region-wide trend – a counter-tendency to the globally dominant market-driven
orientation of media and telecommunication policies – requires explanation.
This article stresses that it cannot be attributed to a spontaneous reaction to
market concentration or media elitism, just as it cannot be reduced to a
top-down process driven by populist leaders seeking to control the media.
Drawing on social movement literature, the article traces four interacting
processes – domestic network mobilization, reframing processes, transnational
activism and changes in political elite alignments – that have brought about
the unprecedented politicization of the Latin American media order.
