Opening up ‘Illiberal’ Regimes: do media and communications matter?

Centre for the Study of Global Governance (CSGG) debate

Even in closed authoritarian systems, or ‘illiberal’ regimes, spaces exist for civil society activity, debate, and networking. Accelerated by globalisation, this process is enabled by diverse actors using traditional and new communications tools, often challenging the status quo.

Paul Collier is co-director of the International Growth Centre at LSE and professor of economics at Oxford University. Mary Kaldor is professor of global governance at LSE and co-director of CSGG. Ziba Mir-Hosseini is senior research associate in the Centre of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law at SOAS. Maung Zarni is coordinator of the Burma/Myanmar Research Initiative at the CSGG, and founder of the Free Burma Coalition.
