Development Theory and Communication Policy: Power to the People!

By Jan Servaes - 2008

Most scholars agree that thinking about communication and development as a distinct discipline emerged after World War II, and they usually point out two paradigms: 'modernization' versus 'dependency'. In this article a new perspective is perceived in terms of a new paradigm, defined as `multiplicity in one world'. It is argued that these three paradigms imply quite divergent communication policy consequences. European Journal of Communication 1(2) 203-230.  (1986.)

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
