Participatory Communication Research Section

The work that is presented in the Participatory Communication Research Section is not based on any specific definition of participation. Rather, participation is a term used to refer to a number of social and planning processes occurring in many different places and in many different contexts. The Section addresses issues related to communication between community members and other stakeholders that are engaged in processes of social change. The sessions that the Section organizes at the IAMCR conferences are meant to work toward theoretical and methodological clarification. Therefore, both papers and statements discussing theoretical or methodological perspectives and/or documenting specific case studies are welcomed.

Topics cover a wide variety of issues that relate to research in relation to processes of communication that incorporate participation in an intrinsic way. This includes subjects and processes of democratisation, communication and information rights, ICTs for sustainable development, health communication, environmental communication, agricultural extension services, folk media and social movements, communication planning activities and interventions, national and cultural identities, community studies and the relationship between participation, empowerment and gender, community radio and participatory video production, non-formal participatory forms of education, participatory rapid appraisals, participatory action research, and so on.

The Participatory Communication Research Section (PCR) explores the theory and practice of participatory communication, and has played an important role as a platform for new thinking. The IAMCR 2017 conference theme allows the section an opportunity to highlight research related to participatory communication and social change, and the ways that participation allows for new discourses and new territorialities to be opened up, and mutations and communications to be generated. Moreover, the conference theme also allows defining participation still as a novel discourse, and as a new territory, that more than ever needs to be developed, deployed and defended all over the world, as a counter-...
