Pluralism and Responsibility. Media in the Digital Society
Welcome to the digital conference series Pluralism and Responsibility. Media in the Digital Society!
The Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media would like to use the opportunity offered by Germany’s EU Council Presidency to help ensure media pluralism in Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly highlighted the importance of quality journalism and an independent and diverse media landscape for the democratic process of opinion-formation.
The digital conference series Pluralism and Responsibility. Media in the Digital Society is intended to foster a European debate on ensuring media pluralism. The series will run from 7 July to 29 October 2020 and is made up of a kick-off event, five focus sessions and a final event.
The conference series is being held in cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut and the German federal states in cooperation with the Institute of European Media Law, the European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services, the European Audiovisual Observatory and Deutsche Welle.
This conference series is co-funded by the European Commission.
