Theses On the Democratization of Communication

By Tamás Szecskö - 1986

The theses scrutinize some sociological and economic aspects of the concept "democratization of communication". Stressing the dialectics of its quantitative and qualitative sides, the author tries to offer a more articulated definition of the concept than those to be found in the MacBride Report. The study employs global and national (social) structures as frames of interpretation for the concept and concludes with some normative statements regarding communicators and communication research.

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.
