Ciziten participation from the view of the law of social responsibility in radio and television of Venezuela


María-del-Mar Ramírez-Alvarado


At the end of 2004, a decree about the Law of Social Responsibility on radio and television was approved by the National Assembly of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The debate about this controversial Law (known by its initials in Spanish as the «Ley Resorte»), has been hard in every sector of society and has been in the «hurricane center» in the last years. The aim of this article is to analyze one of its most innovating aspects: the creation of legal mechanisms which promote the participation of the citizens in the regulation, control and emission of broadcasting and television contents and the real fulfilment of this Law.
