This is a EU-funded project that evaluates the
qualitative experiences of community media in Britain and Germany.
Dr. Isabelle Rigoni, EU Marie Curie Research Fellow at CRER and
associate researcher at the Maghreb-Europe Institute (University
Paris 8) and at the Centre on Gender and Social Relations (GERS-IRESCO,
Paris), is conducting this programme.
The study involves a comprehensive assessment
of the creation and the development of community media. The main
key issue is the creation of community media as alternative forms
of participation in the society, both at the local, national and
transnational levels. The field work is focused on the Muslim media
as well as on the Turkish-language media (newspapers, radio and
television broadcasts, websites).
The research will be completed by Septembre 2003.
