Conference “Rethinking Media Law and Policy for Europe”

Friday, 6 October 2023,
8:30-18:00 hrs.

West-Indisch Huis, Amsterdam.

Free entrance, please register below.

The media landscape has undergone significant structural transformations in the past decades, raising complex challenges for media law and policy. The dominant role of digital platforms in the communications ecosystem has had a disruptive impact on the sustainability of news media as well as on the quality and accuracy of information products. In increasingly politicised media environments, journalists and other media actors face sustained political pressure, attacks and distrust. The evolution of generative AI systems poses new challenges and may change the development and remuneration of news and media productions profoundly.

Against this background, the Conference offers a unique opportunity to explore the outcomes of an international study project developing new directions in news and media law (see further information here) and discuss these new avenues from a practical and policy-oriented perspective.

In sessions that leave ample room for discussion, the Conference will address:

  • Session 1: Constitutional and Institutional Changes and Challenges
  • Session 2: Public Interest, Quality, Pluralism – Regulatory Questions
  • Session 3: Financial Sustainability and Press Publishers’ Right
  • Session 4: Technology Impact – Platforms and AI

The afternoon programme is offered in cooperation with the Dutch copyright association (Vereniging voor Auteursrecht). See full programme here.
