Visiting Research Scholar in University of Miami Institute for the Americas

From October to December 2016 I’ll be at the University of Miami Institute for the Americas (http://www.as.miami.edu/MIA/) as Visiting Research Scholar. Our aim is to continue with the project “Culturas Periodísticas” (www.culturasperiodisticas.com) in this region of USA.

MIA is an international center focused on twenty-first century issues that are impacting Miami, South Florida, and the Americas as a whole. MIA analyzes trends and phenomena involved in these issues in order to take advantage of the positives and respond to the negatives to promote the common good. MIA does this through focused analysis by multidisciplinary teams constituted by faculty, students, and other experts who aim to inform both the public and private sectors. These teams provide possibilities for both undergraduate and graduate students to obtain skills that open up career opportunities.

VII Congreso Internacional en Gobierno, Administración y Políticas Públicas GIGAPP 2016

The VII Congreso Internacional en Gobierno, Administración y Políticas Públicas GIGAPP 2016, “Construyendo una nueva cultura administrativa: políticas y gestión pública con la ciudadanía” will be held on 3, 4 and 5 October in Madrid (Spain) -Escuela de Formacion. Ayuntamiento de Madrid, Plaza de la Villa, 5. 28004 (Centro)-

We present the paper title “El rol profesional de los periodistas en América Latina: entre el servilismo y la confrontación” in the simposium “Cambios políticos y crisis en Iberoamérica: el rol de la Comunicación Política”, Wednesday October 5, 2016, from 11.00 to 13.00

Abstract of our paper:

Las investigaciones comparativas en periodismo continúan aumentando en todo el mundo, en las que, cada vez más, la muestra está compuesta por países que no forman parte de la denominada cultura periodística occidental, que hasta la primera década del siglo XXI actuó como referencia. Esta comunicación presenta el análisis de la percepción de los roles profesionales de los periodistas en ocho países latinoamericanos basada en sus roles, prácticas, valores y actitudes profesionales. Concretamente se analizan las 2789 encuestas realizadas en Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador y México dentro del proyecto Worlds of Journalism Study (WJS). Para ello se parte del análisis del rol profesional de los periodistas a partir de las dimensiones de intervencionismo, distancia del poder y orientación de mercado (Hanizsch, 2007). Los resultados muestran que los periodistas en América Latina adoptan un rol pasivo, situándose como profesionales imparciales. Sin embargo adoptan cierta postura activa respecto a su relación y vinculación profesional con la ciudadanía.

Abstract of paper:

Journalism in general and journalists in particular have a leading role within the mechanisms of information, communication, dissemination and propaganda of the so-called progressive Latin American Governments like Ecuador, Argentina, and Brazil. The political role, played by some journalists and media, places them in the middle of the discussion between Governments, the opposition and the public (citizens) to the point of wondering where information ends and official advertising begins. Communication as a “strategic asset” has been demonstrated due to the interest of certain Governments to regulate and control the media system and the journalistic processes in their countries. Examples such as Ecuador – by the approval of the Organic Law of Communication (LOC) on June 25, 2013, and the creation of several agencies, public media and regulation and control institutions; Argentina – by the Law on Audiovisual Communication Services in October 22, 2009, and the consolidation of the State as the main advertisers in the country and audiovisual producer –; and Brazil, by the regulation in 2011 permitting the participation of telecommunications groups in the audiovisual media market, and the creation in 2009 of a public media system headed by the Empresa Brasil de Comunicação (EBC), show this. Therefore, this study, supported by the results of the Worlds of Journalism Study (WJS) project, seeks to establish whether the professional roles that journalists perceive within Ecuadorian, Argentine and Brazilian societies – auto qualified as progressive or disqualified such as populist or neopopulists – is linked with the regulation, control and, even, manipulation of information and communication processes by the Governments – or other powers – of these three countries.
