Riding or Lashing the Waves: Regulating Media for Diversity in a Time of Uncertainty

Riding or Lashing the Waves: Regulating Media for Diversity in a Time of Uncertainty

May 24, 2019 9:00 AM

Location: Murrow Room

This is an International Communication Association pre-conference that focuses on the regulatory and policy changes needed to stabilize the path from traditional to future forms of media. A core component of our conversation is an in-depth exploration of choices for regulating or deregulating media to ensure media pluralism and diversity. The umbrella question is “what are the regulatory, policy, and production rules that can make future media diverse, embracing pluralism of perspectives and ideas, user-focused and civically-responsible, while remaining profitable?”
