Central America and the Caribbean

chapter
posted on 11.05.2022, 12:48 authored by Ana SuzinaAna Suzina

This entry discusses the danger of being a journalist in Central America, challenges of media convergence in the Caribbean, media ownership concentration in Central America, as well as investigative and collaborative initiatives in the region. Issues faced by Central American countries include corruption, migration and poverty, impunity, gangs, and drug trafficking. The Caribbean territories share some of these issues with Central American countries, in different intensities. Some evolved free of civil wars and dictatorships, but many experienced large and conflictive independence processes from colonial countries. Like their continental neighbors, these territories face social inequality and the impact of increasingly frequent natural disasters, which complexifies the role of a crescent media sector.
