Community radio and television in Spain are not yet fully regulated. It was 2005 in Catalonia and 2010 in Spain before some recognition of this kind of media was included in audiovisual regulations, and then it was marginally and the licensing process was not yet established. Despite this lack of regulation, however, in Spain there are several community or alternative media operating. This article examines the evolution of communication policies regarding these media, and the main issues of discussion in their regulation, to see whether the process and the results of this regulation fit the promises of a deeper democracy implicit in the Information Society project. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
