The object of this course will be to examine the mainstream-as well as alternative-media social structures of communication from the perspective of their relationship to democratic citizenship, both from a rights and a cultural perspective. It will concentrate on examples from all over the world, relating to different political systems, as well as media contexts. The course will be structured according to the different functions media does/should fulfil in terms of democratic citizenship.
