Overview

What roles can and should governments play in communication policymaking? How are communication policies related to welfare politics? With the rapid globalization of commerce and culture and the increasing recognition of information as an economic resource, the grounds for defending the welfare state have shifted. Communication policy is now more widely understood as social policy. "Communication, Citizenship, and Social Policy" examines issues of communication technology, neoliberal economic policies, public service media, media access, social movements and political communication, the geography of communication, and global media development and policy, among others, and shows how progressive policymakers must use these bases to confront more directly the debates on contemporary welfare theory and politics.

Author Biography: Andrew Calabrese is associate professor of journalism and mass communication at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Jean-Claude Burgelman is professor of national and international communication policy at the Free University of Brussels.

Editorial Reviews

Journal Of Communication
The book has many strengths, most notably, wide representation among countries and regions as case studies and a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including sociology, political science, culture, and communication studies.
Journal Of Multilingual & Multicultural Development
This is a far-ranging and penetrating excursion into the vast and rapidly expanding territory of information and communication policy, very thoroughly analysing the casual links in its development and its conceptual basis in neoliberalism and postmodernism, and questioning the appropriateness of the market-place metaphor.
Roger Silverstone
If we are to define poverty as the inability to participate fully in the society in which we are members, and if our media and communication technologies are a crucial precondition of such participation, then there is no longer any meaningful dividing line to be drawn between media policy and social policy. This excellent collection brings together a formidable array of international scholars to address that interface. It is timely and important, and it might even make a difference.
