SIMIS, Anita. Council of social communication: a valve toward dialogue or toward silence?. Rev. bras. Ci. Soc. [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.72, pp. 59-174. ISSN 0102-6909. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-69092010000100005.
This work analyzes the Council of Social Communication, its importance and its trajectory, trying to explain why the Council ruled in 1991, was implanted only 14 years later. After a short period of functioning, there was not a renewal of the management and, since December 2002, it has been idle. Nevertheless, the necessity of the Council management is pointed out by various sectors, though with changes in its character and representation.
