Citizenship, Democracies, and Media Engagement among Emerging Economies and Marginalized Communities

Edited by: Emmanuel K. Ngwainmbi

One of the first volumes to take a truly global, transnational approach to understanding media's role in the shaping development between developed and less-developed countries.

This volume analyzes the contexts in which emerging economies in Africa, the Caribbean, Central and South America, the Middle East, and Asia can chart their socioeconomic futures through progressive democratic practices and media engagement. Using political and development communication, along with case studies from selected countries in these regions, the volume addresses human rights policies, diplomatic practices,
democratization, good governance, identity politics, terrorism, collective action, gendered crimes, political psychology, and citizen journalism as paradigms for sustainable growth.

Through practical experiences and field research in the selected countries, scholars show how personal and national freedoms as well as business deals have been negotiated in a bid to create a new socioeconomic culture within the nations.
