This volume of Making Our Media introduces readers to national and global initiatives spearheaded by civil society groups around the world who seeks to permanently alter the cultural landscape. The chapters present civil society policy initiatives in Latin America, Asia, Europe, and the United States that aim to transform the structures, practices, and norms surrounding communication and culture. The book views communication policy as the principles and action procedures that govern the uses of communication resources. It demonstrates that what is at stake in these efforts is a cultural space worth inhabiting and a strong democratic culture both locally and globally that represents and reflects the full range of social life, creativity, experience, and expression.
