Abstract: 

Community radio is believed to have the potential to advance participatory communication, and therefore to promote social democracy. This research asks whether community radios are democratically organized in the realization of their mandate to promote wider community democratization. Through the case study of Vancouver Co- operative Radio, how community radios organized themselves and what challenges for democratic organizations in practice are discussed.
