The Forum on Information & Democracy is calling for contributions to its Working Group on the Sustainability of Journalism.
The disruption of the media ecosystem and unfair competition driven in part by the move to a digital, mobile, and platform-dominated media environment jeopardizes the sustainability of journalism, which represents a major democratic danger. The working group will ask experts, academics and jurists all over the world to propose recommendations on regulation policies directly or indirectly increasing media revenues that address the issues raised by three structural challenges:
- good practice from for-profit and non-profit independent news media
- regulation favoring an enabling environment for the sustainability of journalism
- recommendations for off market policies
The contributions received will enable the Forum’s working group on the sustainability of journalism to draw up recommendations for governments, international organizations, digital platforms and media organizations.
This call for contributions is open until 28 February 2021.
