Discussing communication rights at the IAMCR 2019 conference

How are communication rights presented in different countries in Europe? A pilot study, titled “Communication for everyone: Communication rights and their differing contexts” was presented at the IAMCR 2019 conference in Madrid 10 July 2019.
