The Catalan conflict and the media

Our latest special issue is out! Edited by Alain-G. Gagnon (Université du Québec à Montréal) , Carlota Moragas and Marta Montagut (Universitat Rovira i Virgili), this issue is about the discourses, actors and citizens in the communicative construction of the Catalan conflict.

It taps into the rich (and at the moment hot) debate on the role that media have played in the construction of the Catalan crisis, and how it can potentially contribute to its solution.
