Summary

Media independence is vital for media democracies, and so is the independence of the regulatory bodies governing it. The Independence of the Media and its Regulatory Agenciesexplores the complex relationship between media governance and independence of media regulatory authorities within media systems within Europe, which form part of the wider framework in which media's independence may flourish or fade. Based on research in more than forty countries, the contributions analyze the independence of regulators from different perspectives and draw links between social, financial, and legal traditions and frameworks.
