This book is the first on the topic of Media Governance at a European Level.European governments are slowly but steadily conceding media control to international organizations such as the EU, shifting rules and regulations from national governments to local and multinational policies, public interest and pressure groups. "European Media Governance: The Brussels Dimension" investigates how the print, broadcast, film and advertising industries and journalists, scriptwriters and consumers unions are lobbying in Brussels. The book examines the role in media governance of ten European organizations from a variety of media sectors, including the Federation of European Film Directors, the European Newspaper Publishers' Association, the Federation of Scriptwriters in Europe, as well as the work of the European Commission, the European Parliament, and the European Consumers' Association.The book addresses the identity of these organizations, how they influence media governance, what they do and whom they represent. Detailed analysis of media-related debates in EU institutions combines with investigation into the lobbying efforts of these political, professional and public interest groups.
The volume provides a comprehensive study of European media governance and an in-depth investigation into the current media lobby in Brussels.
