Abstract

Comparative Media Policy, Regulation and Governance in Europe - Unpacking the Policy Cycle represents the continuation and further development of a long tradition of media policy books, focusing on the development of media structures and media policy within Europe. It provides a comprehensive overview of the current European media in a period of more or less disruptive transformation. It maps the full scope of contemporary media policy and industry activities while also assessing the impact of new technologies and radical changes in distribution and consumption on media practices, organisations and strategies. Dealing with a good selection of critical issues in comparative media policy, regulation and governance, the book combines a critical assessment of media systems with a thematic approach. It starts out with the state of affairs at the level of media platforms, approaching these from a functional perspective, i.e. opinion and debate, news provision and entertainment. The book is both an academic book and a text book, as well as a source providing good practices for steering media policy, international communication and the media landscape across Europe.

Abstract

Dieser Band nutzt die durch Elinor Ostrom bekannt gewordene Theorie der Commons – also der Gemeingüter – für eine ganzheitliche Analyse des öffentlichen Rundfunks. Die Autorin argumentiert, dass gesellschaftliche Teilhabe, kollaborative Produktion und offener Zugang zu Inhalten, sowie Abstand zu Markt und Staat, zentral sind für die Legitimation dieser Medienorganisation im digitalen Zeitalter. Sie bespricht drei gegensätzliche Zugänge zur Theorie der Commons und die damit verbundenen «konzeptionellen Stolpersteine», dann schlägt sie 18 Merkmale vor, um Medienorganisationen als «Media Commons» zu analysieren. Anhand einer Dokumentenanalyse untersucht sie 30 öffentliche Rundfunkorganisationen – «übliche Verdächtige» wie ARD, BBC, ORF und SRG, aber auch weniger bekannte Organisationen. Die Autorin kommt zu dem Schluss, dass öffentliche Rundfunkorganisationen zwar einige, aber längst nicht alle Merkmale eines «Media Commons» aufweisen und unterschiedlich nachhaltig funktionieren.This volume uses the theory of the commons, which is often associated with Elinor Ostrom, to conduct a holistic analysis of public service broadcasting. The author argues that social participation, collaborative production and open access to content, as well as distance to markets and the state, are central to the legitimacy of this form of media organisation in the digital age. She discusses three opposing approaches to the theory of the commons and related ‘conceptual stumbling blocks’, and suggests 18 characteristics in order to analyse media organisations as ‘media commons’. By means of a document analysis, she examines 30 public service broadcasting organisations—including ‘the usual suspects’, like ARD, the BBC, ORF or SRG, but also lesser known organisations. She concludes that public service broadcasters feature some, but by no means all, of the characteristics of ‘media commons’ and that they operate with varying degrees of sustainability.

Abstract

For functioning well, the media need democracy as much as democracy needs the media. This is the starting point of this analysis of the delicate relation between the news media and democracy which is well defined in constitutional terms both in the European Convention on Human Rights and in national legislation. The relation is best described as social contract – to the benefit of freedom of speech and editorial independence, but also to sound governance of the state and other powerholders in society. Notably, different models of democracy correspond to different roles of the media. In any case, however, media policy is requested to respect media freedom. The Internet, as well as social and networked media require policy answers to challenges such as data protection, content blocking and surveillance. The authors conclude that media policy tools need to be developed along the all-digital media future.
