CMC takes part in EC’s „Media Pluralism Monitor“

The Media Pluralism Monitor (MPM) is funded by the European Commission in order to identify potential risks to media pluralism across the European Union. MPM is part of the “Digital Agenda for Europe”, a Europe 2020 initiative. Based on a study published in 2009, this year the MPM (conducted by the Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom at the European University Institute) will be implemented in all EU member states. In Austria, the Monitor is implemented by the CMC research group “Media, Politics & Democracy”; the Austrian team is headed by Josef Seethaler.
