The independence of media regulatory authorities in Europe
Europe’s main piece of media legislation – the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) – was recently revised and a new version entered into force.
The Observatory has a vigilant eye on European media legislation and has released, with the aid of its partner institution, the University of Amsterdam's IViR, an analysis of what the new AVMSD will mean for European regulators.
