[ecrea] Nordicom: Public Service Media from a Nordic Horizon

Wed Apr 10 01:35:43 GMT 2013

Nordicom has published three volumes within the project A Nordic Public Service Media Map.

The Nordic countries have a tradition of strong support for their public service media and have also developed public service models that are characterized by their relatively small size and small populations. Moreover, the companies have many years’ experience of collaboration within the region – particularly with regard to coproduction of programs.

The aim of this Nordicom project has been to elucidate a framework for public service media – showing how the concept of public service media is operationalized in terms of the growth of democracy, the public space, media pluralism, cultural diversity, gender and social tolerance. The results of these efforts include recent research findings and statistical overviews.

A year ago we presented the first volume, Public Service Media in the Nordic Countries: Facts & Figures.

Now we are pleased to present the remaining two volumes:

A research anthology: Public Service Media from a Nordic Horizon. Politics, Markets, Programming and Users. The books contains a number of qualified analyses of public service media carried out by Nordic media scholars.

A Nordic Public Service Media Map. This publication presents key facts on Nordic Public Service Media based on the two publications mentioned above.
