This collection of 15 essays on participatory communication covers a wide range of contexts and countries. The book challenges the field of development communication to rethink its role in elaborating the concepts and practices of people's participation.
Part One presents theoretical perspectives on policy issues and political ideologies; Part Two explores diverse methodological issues arising from current debates in the social sciences and development sociology. The final part details significant case studies which articulate specific experiences of interfacing theory and practice.About the Author:
