TAMAYO GOMEZ, CAMILO ANDRÉS. Communicative Citizenship, Preliminary Approaches. Signo pensam. [online]. 2012, vol.31, n.60, pp.106-128. ISSN 0120-4823.

In order to understand the relationship between communication, citizenship and rights it is necessary to analyse three fields separately: the political communication field, the social communication field and the cultural communication field. This research has developed a concept of communicative citizenship, a model and methodological tools to create a comprehensive and integrative approach to the relationship between communication, citizenship and rights, and overcome this gap. The project includes the analysis of socio communicative regimes in an armed conflict context (Colombia), a multicultural context focusing on migrants' political action (United Kingdom), and a society where Governmental control affects communicative and political rights (Italy). To describe, analyse and understand how these conditions affect the human rights field and how it is possible to claim for justice, equality and freedom from a communicative perspective, are the final aims of this research.

Keywords : Communicative Citizenship; Human Rights; Citizenship; Democracy; Public Sphere; Communicative Regime; Human rights; Social Communication; Communication in politics; Communication and culture; Citizenship - social aspects; Social change.
