General theme

We invite researchers in the field of Communication to submit articles for the dossier to be published in RAZÓN Y PALAVRA Magazine in volume 27, number 113.

Scientific Policies in the area of ​​Communication are essential to promote dialogue between the State and organized civil society, in order to contribute to the democratization of communication. However, recent changes in the world communication landscape put this relationship in check. Discussing about participation in knowledge and solidarity is key to facing a present and a future marked by antagonistic discourses, conflicts and narrative disputes about the status of scientific knowledge and its impacts on society, as has been the case with the pandemic of the Covid-19 and its effects. In this context, legal frameworks and public policies become essential to regulate a communication sphere that is less and less dependent on the mass media and that becomes decentralized with the entry on the scene of multiple actors from social networks.
Socicom, through its internationalization policies, promotes in this publication a reflection on communication practices in this socio-historical moment marked by extreme situations. As part of an active society committed to training and knowledge, we seek to present an overview of current communication challenges, with a focus on Latin America, contributing to the development of studies and research that indicate possible solutions to the crisis of disorganization social that we live, through political participation and cultural development.
