Media Landscapes


Media Landscapes

In a new era of digital content, media organisations are trying to build innovative new formats, business models and companies to both attract and retain audiences. But understanding the bigger picture of any country’s media industry is hard. From stalwarts to start-ups, revenue to regulation, agencies to associations, universities to unions, the media landscape of each country is unique.

Media Landscapes involves close to forty expert writers who have mapped the entire journalism ecosystem of over thirty countries. It provides an invaluable resource for students, researchers, social and political commentators and - of course - journalists. Each country features details on the historical evolution of its media scene and the major players, then and now, Print, broadcast and digital outlets are covered, as are all relevant associations, professional bodies, unions and educational institutions. Each report then places this in a vital socio-political context of regulation, legislation and press freedom.

Media Landscapes also now has its own faster, cleaner dedicated site, having been the most popular sub-section on the European Journalism Centre’s site since its inception in 1997. These latest editions feature expanded reports and additional facts, as well as comprehensive sourcing of all research. With the generous support of OCW, Free Press Unlimited and others, Media Landscapes will continue to evolve in the future and will continue to provide the essential guide to the world’s news and media ecosystems.
