To join the Post-Socialist and Post-Authoritarian Communication Working Group, login to your account and select My Sections and Working Groups from the menu. A number of IAMCR sections and working groups send notices and other information exclusively to their members. IAMCR members can join up to five sections or working groups.

This Working Group is particularly interested in the many different and changing roles of media and journalism in so-called ‘transitional societies’ or ‘new democracies’. This includes work on national adaptation to new journalistic genres and TV formats, ideas about the ‘CNN effect’, and the political functions of popular culture in different national contexts. Members also have an interest in comparative (multi-language) discourse analyses, the visualization of international journalism and the role of globalisation and critical global justice movements in this process.
