Case study reports – Media regulation: A panacea for free and independent media?

MEDIADEM researchers met in Edinburgh on 8-10 December 2011 for the fourth meeting of the project.  Twenty nine participants from fourteen European countries came together to discuss about the project, investigating whether the domestic rules, as enacted and implemented, facilitate the development of free and independent media. The methodology employed for the case study reports combines an examination of primary resources, secondary literature and semi-structured interviews with policy-makers, journalists and independent media regulators, amongst others. You may download the case study reports in pdf format: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, and the UK.
