The Independence of the Media and its Regulatory Agencies : Shedding New Light on Formal and Actual Independence against the National Context Paperback / softback
Edited by Wolfgang Schulz, Peggy Valcke, Kristina Irion
Part of the European Communication Research and Education Association series
Media independence is vital for media democracies, and so is the independence of the regulatory bodies governing it.
The Independence of the Media and its Regulatory Agencies explores the complex relationship between media governance and independence of media regulatory authorities within media systems within Europe, which form part of the wider framework in which media's independence may flourish or fade.
Based on research in more than forty countries, the contributions analyze the independence of regulators from different perspectives and draw links between social, financial, and legal traditions and frameworks.
