Public service media and European Union law: A new human rights framework?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The chapter considers the legal bases on which the EU has engaged with state regulation and funding of public service media in the past, notably through treaty articles on the free movement of services and state aid. It argues that greater emphasis needs to be placed on freedom of expression, media pluralism and political independence in application of these rules and explores the EU's growing engagement with human rights in the media context through the rule of law framework and annual media pluralism monitoring.
