|Description of call |
"Pilot Project Media Ownership Monitor"
As a part of its wider efforts to support media freedom and pluralism, the European Commission launched a call for proposals to establish a Media Ownership Monitor. The Media Ownership Monitor project will create a tool to better inform policy and regulatory interventions that support media freedom and pluralism, by clearly delineating where ownership lies, making potential issues more visible and thereby helping to improve the understanding of the media market. Concretely, the Monitor will provide a country-based database containing information on media ownership, assess systematically relevant legal frameworks and identify possible risks to media ownership transparency.
