Commercialization, concentration, convergence, and globalization have dramatically changed the way that media is governed today. European Media Governance analyzes how the governments in thirty-two European countries have slowly but steadily ceded control of the media to marketplace, professional, and public forces.
This landmark study offers an overview of media ownership structures in each country as well as analyses of policies, accountability systems, and technological developments in the regions discussed. This book will be an incomparable resource for all students and scholars of European media.
