Minority media as intercultural dialogue: Towards a communicative praxis
This article justifies the need for minority-sensitive media, setting them out as a key plank of intercultural dialogue. To advance this argument, the article analyses minority-sensitive media in terms of the increasing recognition of minorities in international human rights discourse, their continuing poor representations in the media and the democratic potential of minority discourse as intercultural dialogue. It then attempts to appropriate minority discourse as communicative praxis, sketching three key normative communicative roles for minority media actors, namely: facilitating cultural interactions, unmasking cultural stereotypes and intolerance, and forging a common cultural-pluralistic narrative.
