The concept of media transition with a focus in Macedonia

Session

Journalism, Media and Communication

Description

A very important reference point for this paper is the process of transformation in which the Macedonian state and media have been involved from 1991 up to present. The process of transition represents a social change that mainly involves political changes which implies all aspects and systems of a modern society. In the context of media and information science, this term has almost never been discussed. Therefore, it is necessary to take an interdisciplinary approach in its conceptualization.Macedonia has not been a very good example of democracy so far and, according to the analysis of this paper, little or nothing has been done to get out of this everlasting transition phase. The paper aims to identify and analyze eight processes or groups that are contradictory to the processes of change in post-communist media systems.
