Participatory Communication Author: Thomas Tufte, Paolo Mefalopulos Created Date: 10/8/ AM.

The top-down approach used to . is a platform for academics to share research papers.

Participatory communication is increasingly being considered a key component of development projects around the world. Therefore, the purpose of my research has been to conduct an in-depth review and comparison on how participatory communication has been conceived theoretically, in the literature, and practically, in a project dedicated to this approach.   When the aim of communication is to contribute to sustainable development, it falls within the field of communication for social change, where the participatory approach is the norm. However, the context of instructional CSR communication poses challenges to the traditional conceptualisation of the participatory approach.   Theoretical Approaches to Participatory Communication.(Book Review) by "Communication Research Trends"; Sociology and social work Books Book reviews.
