Originating Calendar
Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS)

The talk will provide an overview of the process of drafting the new Chilean Constitution, particularly shedding light on two communications topics: first, the constitutional changes addressing communications, including the public media system, and rights to freedom of expression, and access to information and knowledge; and, second, the public and political communications of the very complex, and high-profile body of the Constitutional Convention (CC). The CC has had a difficult time setting up a communications strategy and it has clashed several times with the communications and media performances of individual members of the CC and their staff, too. A combination of misinformation and problematic performance from some of the members of the CC has contributed to the erosion of trust in the process.
