As part of their long-lasting collaboration, the European Audiovisual Observatory (OBS) and the European Platform of Regulatory Authorities (EPRA) jointly organised in Strasbourg on 15 December 2014 a workshop on “Empowering users: rating systems, protection tools and media literacy across Europe”. This workshop is the first experiment of its kind as it forged new paths of cooperation between experts, representatives of the industry and regulators, with the aim to address through a multi-stakeholders’ and cross-media approach important and societal topics, such as the empowering of users and the protection of minors in new audiovisual services. The interactive workshop was built around a four-tier structure encompassing regulatory aspects, self and co-regulatory commitments, protection tools and media literacy.

You will find here the summary of the debates held during the workshop, including links to the presentations made by the participants.
