Bart Cammaerts is associate professor and director of the PhD program at the Department of Media and Communications of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). His current research focuses on the relationship between media, communication and resistance with particular emphasis on media strategies of activists, media representations of protest, alternative counter-cultures and issues relating to media power, mediation and public-ness. He publishes widely and his most recent books include: Youth Participation in Democratic Life: Stories of Hope and Disillusion (co-authored with Michael Bruter, Shakuntala Banaji, Sarah Harrison and Nick Anstead, Palgrave MacMillan, 2015) and Mediation and Protest Movements (edited with Alice Matoni and Patrick McCurdy, Intellect, 2013).
