Global Media Policy Working Group
The working group on Global Media Policy was established in 1998 with the aim of offering an open space for scientific interaction to examine Global Media Policy as an emerging field of research and practice.
This Working Group critically addresses the main features of the processes that aim at regulating and governing the on-going transformations of global media and communication systems and structures. Special attention is posed to the multi-level complexities of this domain, to emerging forms of multi-actor governance and to innovative practices of participation in governing arrangements beyond the nation state. The Working Group also focuses on the democratic implications of Global Media Policy transformations and on the potential of critical investigation towards more transparent and accountable governance models for media and communication.
Over the years, the Working Group has organized conference panels and produced publications that have contributed to consolidate scientific knowledge in the field and to structure Global Media Policy as a domain. Currently efforts are being made to develop scientific as well as policy-oriented interdisciplinary exchanges with other IAMCR sections and Working Groups as well as with other institutions. This is being done particularly in the context of the Global Media Policy Mapping project.
