Media and communication studies, with its history of linking human and communication rights at crucial 20th century junctions, has a key role in promoting human rights in the 21st century. The media can not only boost human rights consciousness by exposing their violations, but they can inform civic action on unprecedented scales and mobilize humanitarian intervention. On the flip side, media can (and do) injure human rights through politicized reportage and desensitization, where viewers are turned into voyeurs of exotic victimization. Even more ubiquitous bruising of rights is sustained through the pervasive use of surveillant technologies, which bring with them social and historical contingencies.
