Approaches to Development. Studies on Communication for Development - Communiction and the Persistence of Poverty
The Need for a Return to Basics
by Pradip Thomas

Abstract:
Pradip Thomas argues that the worldwide poverty situation could be solved by participatory communication. The use of participatory communication education mechanisms could bring about social change and development through sustained improvements in agriculture, health, education, politics and economics over a sufficiently long enough time to make a considerable proportion of the population less poor, both in material as well as immaterial ways.
