Aurora Labio‐Bernal holds a PhD in journalism and is a tenured lecturer at University of Seville. She is
the director of the Media, Communication Policies, and Democracy in the European Union research
group. Her research has focused on the political economy of communication, and she has numerous
articles published in international journals on these topics. She has been a visiting researcher at the
Observatory of Communication Policies (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), at the Communication
and Media Research Institute (University of Westminster), and she has also served as the UNESCO
Communication Research Chair (Rey Juan Carlos Madrid University) . I am seriously interested in considering comparative studies between different regional communication studies, such as comparing Latin and Nordic traditions in Journalism, Communication Policies and Media Systems.
