On 5 and 6 July 2012, the CSA of the French Community of Belgium and the MEDIADEM project jointly organise a workshop entitled "New screens, new regulation". This conference on the future of television, which will revolve around issues such as Connected TV, social media and net neutrality, is also an opportunity to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the CSA.
The opening night of 5 July will provide an update on the current situation, while the 6th of July will present analysis and debates involving traditional operators and new entrants. The CSA intends to look at the impact of convergence on regulatory policies in order to question, rethink, and renew regulatory approaches and their underlying principles.
The MEDIADEM project aims at examining the factors that promote or hinder policy development for media freedom and independence in contemporary democratic societies. In this perspective, it focuses on the involvement of all stakeholders in the media industry - including regulators - in the development and implementation of the legal and regulatory framework.
