Pluralism and Responsibility. Media in the Digital Society

Welcome to the digital conference series Pluralism and Responsibility. Media in the Digital Society!
During Germany’s EU Council Presidency the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media put a focus on ensuring media pluralism in Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic had clearly highlighted the importance of quality journalism and an independent and diverse media landscape for the democratic process of opinion-formation.
From 7 July to 29 October 2020 discussion forums were held, their results will feed into future work at EU level. 

Kick-off event, five focus sessions and  final event are available for download.

The digital conference series was organised in cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Media Research – Hans Bredow Institute, the German Länder in cooperation with the Institute for European Media Law, the European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services, the European Audiovisual Observatory and Deutsche Welle; it was co-funded by the European Commission.
