What is media plurality, and what are the conditions and risks for media plurality in the age of algorithms?
Be sure to tune in to this timely conversation with key experts
As was announced last week, the EPRA team has replaced the planned panel discussion for Plenary 2 at the 51st EPRA meeting in Antwerp with a brand new format.
We are now very pleased to invite you to discover EPRA's first-ever podcast dedicated to a major challenge of our times: What is media plurality, and what are the conditions and risks for media plurality in the age of algorithms?
The podcast features a timely conversation between Mari Velsand, EPRA Vice Chairperson and Director of the Norwegian Media Authority and three key experts:
Olaf Steenfadt (Reporters sans frontières)
Eleonora Mazzoli (London School of Economics and Political Science)
Elda Brogi (Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom, Florence).
A detailed background document, authored by Lewis McQuarrie (Ofcom - UK) sets the frame of conversation for the podcast by defining media plurality, analysing the theoretical framework, reviewing current policy measures, and identifying key changes in technology and media consumption and their potential impact on media plurality.
