In July 2018 a new book edited by IMS professor Leen d’Haenens (KU Leuven), Helena Sousa (University of Minho, Portugal), and Josef Trappel (University of Salzburg, Austria) will become available. The book is titled: Comparative Media Policy, Regulation and Governance in Europe. Unpacking the Policy Cycle.
This book offers a comprehensive overview of the current European media in a period of disruptive transformation. It maps the full scope of contemporary media policy and industry activities while also assessing the impact of new technologies and radical changes in distribution and consumption on media practices, organizations, and strategies. Combining a critical assessment of media systems with a thematic approach, it can serve as a resource for scholars or as a textbook, as well as a source of good practices for steering media policy, international communication, and the media landscape across Europe.
