Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Over the past 50 years, both policy and research debates have at times raged over how change and power should be interpreted in global communication. This introduction to the Special Section titled "Global Communication Power: Shift or Stasis?" makes the case for the need to explore this question from fresh vantage points. It frames critical and creative pathways for thinking about and rethinking current transformations in global media. The introduction, then, provides an overview of the contributions and draws recurring themes together, posing key questions for further research.
