Rescuing participation

Fábio Ribeiro, Ana Duarte Melo & Nico Carpentier

Vol. 36 - 2019 | CECS - UMinho


“Why is participation relevant? What is meant when the concept is used? How can we ensure that participation is used in a responsible way, and rendered meaningful in the different spaces of society? These may be the most important questions that motivated us, editors of this volume of Comunicação e Sociedade, to propose a discussion on the noteworthiness of participation, and to invite scholars from across the globe to present their perspectives on what a positive and meaningful approach towards participation means to them. The result of this long process is this journal issue, entitled «Rescuing participation»” [Introdutory note].
