Panel discussion „European Community Media Policy“

The panel will discuss recent developments in European Community Media Policy, including: 1) the opportunities and challenges that arise from the approval of the EU Parliament resolutions on Community Media and, partly, Media Pluralism; 2) the opportunities that might arise from the approval of the Draft Declaration on Community Media discussed at CDMC committee at the Council of Europe, as well as the findings emerging from P.Lewis research on community media and social inclusion; 3) the emerging findings from the comparative research done by Helmut Peissl and Otto Tremetzberger in five EU countries; 4) issues and opportunities emerging from current community media practices (AMARC) at the global and European level, also with reference to the recent AMARC conference in Montreal and the 25 years of AMARC declaration issued there; 5) national and regional perspectives in the European context.
