I EvalComDev International Conference
9th -11th May 2017, Cadiz, Spain
This conference is convened within the framework of
the EvalComDev R&D Project, which aims to evaluate the field
of Communication for Development and Social Change, closely
linked to social justice, so that its guiding principles can
be put into practice and its social impact can be
The EvalComDev Conference (Evaluation of
Communication for Development and Social Change) is a
continuation of the research and work lines started by
Lennie & Tacchi (2013), among others. Its main objective is
to share the research and experiences that, at
an international level, have facilitated progress in the
discussions within the C4D field. In this regard, these are
some of the questions that lie at the heart of this
- Which theoretical and methodological approaches
currently coexist within the C4D field? To what extent is
the C4D field being receptive to the
challenges and needs raised by the financial crisis and to
the alternative proposals that have emerged in both the
North and the Global South?
- What research and evaluation strategies are
likely to be recreated in contexts different from the ones
where they arose?
- What might be the indicators that would enable an
advance in the translation, into operational
terms, of guidelines, approaches, methodologies and
knowledge historically accumulated within the C4D field?
The EvalComDev Congress is conceived as a place of
exchange, closer to a working seminar than to a mega event.
For this reason, we expect the conference not to be an
overcrowded space. In the selection of papers, priority will
be given to researchers and mediactivists who work,
specifically, in the field of evaluation, monitoring or
systematization of experiences, or, failing this,
to researchers who have been working in C4D for the last

L1. To measure communication and social change:
research, indicators, debates, trends.
Coord.: Víctor Manuel Marí Sáez (UCA) (Chair) and
Jesús Rengel, (UCA).
How to measure the CDSC? What are the theoretical,
methodological and political challenges in this field? In
this section those communications that reflect around these
issues (trends, debates and instruments) will be included.
Additionally, those communications that address the question
of the most appropriate and CDCS will be taken into account.
L2. Communication and Social Change from the
organizations of the Third Sector of Communication and
Coord.: Javier Erro (UPNA) (Chair) and Gonzalo
In this section we accept communications led from
the Third Sector of Communication and the social movements
based on case studies or their own communicative
We are looking for papers based around
communication strategies, plans and actions put into
practice with the active participation of citizens and the
promotion of socio-political transformation of reality.
L3. Transmedia and social change.
Coord: Juan Pagola (Deusto) (Chair) and Marta
From this section we propose a reflection on the
connections between narratives, the discourses and the
social change. Faced with the discourses and representations
that promote a spectacularization of the reality, without
driving structural changes, we intend to explore new avenues
from which the NGOs and social movements propose new
narratives connected to new emancipatory practices.
L4.The Political Economy of the Development and
Coord: Joaquín Arriola (UPV) and Mercedes Jiménez
How is development conceived from the CDSC point
of view? How is the communicative dimension integrated
into the new political economy of development? We seek
reflections that bring up new perspectives to advance the
theoretical and practical understanding of the cognitive
or nformational revolution in the creation of new
territorial and social development dynamics.
