CALL FOR PAPERS: Media, Civic Participation, Social Movements, Democracy
and Populism

Different communication patterns (online and offline) influence individuals
to have specific behaviours concerning civic participation and adherence to
social movements of different ideological frameworks and scopes.

As publics have the chance to channel their ideas through Internet
behaviours, literature often identifies Internet as a public space that
promotes collective action, and acknowledges that technology is shaping the
structure and identity of social movements and ideological groups.

The analysis of direct and indirect influences of media practices on civic
engagement must consider that democracy is not a static concept and that
such engagement is also influenced by political institutions.

The media amplifies political discourses and this mediation socially
constructs events. The ‘mediated engagement’ of citizens may enhance either
civic involvement or political manipulation.

In this special issue of the Journal *Interações* we propose a reflection
on Media, Civic Participation, Social Movements, Democracy and Populism.
Unpublished works that present research results and/or theoretical
reflection on this theme are accepted covering, among others, the following
topics:
