Media Pluralism and Diversity

Adopting a truly global, theoretical and multidisciplinary perspective, Media Pluralism and Diversity intends to advance our understanding of media pluralism across the globe.

Media Pluralism and Diversity

In the western world, a diverse and pluralistic media landscape is deemed essential for democracy. But how universal is media pluralism as a concept underpinning media policies? To what extent do normative approaches, regulatory dimensions and monitoring systems differ throughout the world? Being a complex and multidimensional concept, media pluralism is interpreted and labelled in varying ways in different times, geographies, contexts and policy circles. Adopting a truly global, theoretical and multidisciplinary perspective, Media Pluralism and Diversity advances our understanding of media pluralism across the globe. It compares metrics that have been developed in different parts of the world to assess levels of, or threats to, media pluralism. It identifies common challenges for media pluralism policies in the light of a fast changing and increasingly global media environment. The book is unique in that it confronts insights from all parts of the world and from a broad range of disciplines including law, economics, cultural and media studies, communication science and sociology.
