Over the last few decades community radio has shown rapid development, expanding its unique form of participatory communication to millions around the world as well as attracting increasing research and publication.

How can community radio address issues of social cohesion and contribute to overcoming stereotypes? What is the role of community radio in building democracy the digital era?
