In what ways can community radio spark social change?

This web seminar will cover the aspects of community radio, discuss why information matters and how the voices of the community relates to development, with examples from Tanzania, Laos and Myanmar (Burma).

The seminar is based on the bachelor thesis ”A path less travelled – A qualitative study of media, participation and democracy in Shan state civil society, Myanmar (Burma)” by Fredrik Åkerberg, and part of the Media and Communication Studies programme at Malmö University. The data for the thesis was collected during a Minor Field Study in Myanmar during spring 2016 and aimed to explore how parts of civil society relates to media processes in a period of transition.

Moderator: Fredrik Åkerberg
