nr_speciel_issue_2015Featuring contributions from ComDev team members and guest lecturers including Florencia Enghel, Jo Tacchi and Jessica Noske-Turner, Nordicom just published a special issue of the Nordicom Review entitled “Beyond the Impasse: Exploring new thinking in communication for social change“, edited by Pradip Ninan Thomas from the University of Queensland, Australia.

Combining insights from both theory and practice, this publication foregrounds innovative thinking on Communication for Social Change (CSC), offers fresh perspectives on the changing nature of this field while throwing new light on old realities. It offers critical insights and practical pathways that are a valuable contribution to knowledge on CSC.

These two publications complement each other very well, as Pradip Ninan Thomas notes in his foreword: “We think that these two issues of the Nordicom Review, both as stand alone issues and together, offer students and researchers, an up to date introduction to CSC as a field that is both contested and that, at the very same time, offers many resources of hope.”

Both publications are published as open access and are available electronically free of charge.
