Exercise of the rights to communication, in conventional and digital media, in the Republic of Ecuador
The Constitution of the Republic of Ecuador in harmony with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes that the social communication system must ensure the exercise of the rights to communication, information, and freedom of expression. This protection framework generates positions in companies and social sectors, but rarely have the voices of journalists and employees been heard to identify how communication rights are fulfilled. The purpose of the research is to learn about rights and freedoms related to communication. The methodology is qualitative, through semi-structured interviews 11 communicators working in audiovisual and digital media of Ecuador are approached, between June 29 and July 15, 2019. The hypothesis is: restrictions occur that are overcome in a creative way. Solutions have often been found on platforms and digital media. It remains as a line to explore the informative spaces through the Internet as part of a new communication ecosystem of Ecuador.
