This RDI Network conference 2019 side-event brings together academics, researchers and practitioners from across Australian universities, think tanks and NGOs. The aim is to provide a platform for international development actors involved or interested in Communication for Development (C4D) work to share experiences, lessons learned and recommendations that can contribute to an improved practice. It also wants to be a space to encourage and facilitate collaboration between practitioners and researchers on C4D-related research projects that strengthen the value of the practice.
Following on from the 2015 and 2017 Communication for Development gatherings, the specific focus of this roundtable is to discuss how civil society groups, social movements, and development organisations can more effectively lead the path to an inclusive development through the use of the media and communication. Both practitioners and researchers will share their experiences in either implementing or studying media and communication interventions designed to engage citizens (in general) or disadvantaged and marginalised groups (more specifically) in participating in debate and having a voice on issues that affect them.
