International media policy

Free and independent media form the basis of democratic societies and are an integral element of global security and prosperity. Globalisation and digitalisation have also become an indispensable part of today’s media landscape. The rapid online dissemination of information across national borders, the possibility for individuals to publicly express and promulgate their opinions, and the increasing attacks on press freedom and the integrity of journalists pose new challenges for international media policy. The data-based personalisation of media services, changing user behaviour and the loss of revenues by information producers to news intermediaries require fresh ideas for financing independent quality journalism. Phenomena such as misinformation, disinformation and online hate speech raise new questions, particularly on regulating news intermediaries.
