Public service broadcasting: when the status quo won’t do

2 Dec 2016

This blog post discusses some of the key challenges facing public broadcasting in the UK and across Europe including the pace of technological change; the emergence of powerful new producers and platforms; shifts in consumption habits and a far more competitive advertising market; Brexit; the election of Donald Trump in the US; the attacks on the independence of broadcasters across Europe and the rise of xenophobia as a mobilizing force.

This was one of the key topics discussed at the London School of Economics and Political Science's recent symposium: 'The Future of Public Service Media in Europe - Freedom, Independence and Media Relations with the State'.
