The 5th conference Media and Governance in Latin America, with the theme Communication in Contested Political Scenarios will take place on June 15-16, 2020 at the Nordic Institute of Latin America Studies. The itinerant conference is held since 2014 in different European locations.

The conference’s goal is to promote an intellectual debate on the role of the media in the promotion of good governance in Latin America. By bringing together senior scholars and young researchers, this initiative seeks to provide a space of exchange about the theoretical and methodological relevance of current debates. This conference aims to address academic debates in the field of global media, media and development, and the de-westernization of media studies. It will provide international scholars the opportunity to discuss theoretical and methodological approaches, country-based case studies, comparative projects and academic collaborations in a transdisciplinary setting.
