This Working Group is concerned with the performance practices and accountability mechanisms for public broadcasters and the extent to which governments need to intervene in the media market to correct market failures and to guarantee broadcasting as a public merit good. Its members are interested in whether there is a need for a new policy paradigm for public service broadcasting and alternative ways of assessing and measuring public service media’s value to the public.
