The use and development of media, as well as the Internet, lead to inequalities and difficulties related to modes of use, learning and access. Thus, the objective of this research aims to understand the articulations between media literacy and citizen participation in the Portuguese context, which stands out among European countries in terms of the development of these themes. Specifically, the objective is to understand the historical process of media literacy in Portugal, as well as to present a list of media literacy recommendations based on Portuguese experiences. To this end, we propose carrying out bibliographical research to bring the researcher closer to the country's scientific production and conduct in-depth interviews with Portuguese researchers, who will support the achievement of the proposed objectives. We believe that the Portuguese experience, combined with these research steps mentioned above, can bring important contributions to the research project developed in Brazil entitled "Democratization of Communication and Media Literacy: Entities, regulations and experiences", in addition to presenting a new panorama of relations between media, media literacy, participation and citizenship.
