ELHAJJI, Mohammed  and  MALERBA, João Paulo. Comunity uses of webradio in the transnational migratory context. REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.46, pp.109-127. ISSN 2237-9843.

The migration phenomenon has experiencing, currently, outstanding intensification. Beyond its social, economic and political reasons, there are technological, symbolic and subjective issues influencing it. The will and the need of producing its own narrative in order to help the conservation of its ties with its original and diaspora communities are finding support in innovative media initiatives, clustered under the notion of ‘webdiaspora’. Among them, we highlight the webradios of migrant communities – object of our study, where we intend to apprehend some of the modes of organization of migrants communities, its strategies for acquiring global citizenship and its actuation in transnational spaces. Through the study of webradios of migrant communities we intend to evidence the potential and weaknesses of webdiaspora to the democratization of communication and the conceptual and theoretical challenges for the community communication studies.

Keywords : transnational migrations; community webradios; community communication; ICTs.
