European Media Policies Revisited : Valuing and Reclaiming Free and Independent Media in Contemporary Democratic Systems (MEDIADEM)

The cooperative project MEDIADEM is the result of a call from the 7th European Commission Framework Programme. The project begins on 1 January 2010 and will last a period of three years.


MEDIADEM seeks to understand and explain the factors that promote (or conversely hinder) the development of policies for free and independent media. The project will combine a country-based study in Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey and the UK with a comparative analysis across media sectors and types of media services, and will investigate the complex array of policy approaches and regulatory and self-regulatory practices established to safeguard media freedom and independence.

The project will make a significant contribution to media policy development by advancing knowledge on how media freedom and independence can be safeguarded in Europe. It will thus be of particular interest to state and European policy makers, civil society and the public at large.
