We would like to invite you to join us in the launch webinar of the 2021 edition of the Media for Democracy Monitor (MDM) on Thursday 15 April 2021 at 15:00 CEST. Free and open registration here: http://www.euromediagroup.org/mdm/mdm2021-launch/
This research project asks to what extent structures and conduct of leading news media correspond with requirements of contemporary democracies. Based on a root concept of democracy and several empirical indicators, the MDM delivers a panorama of the news media’s performance regarding freedom, equality, and control across several countries. In 2011, the MDM analysed 10 democracies. Ten years later, it covers 18 countries worldwide and pinpoints essential strengths and weaknesses during this decade of digitalisation. In the webinar, we will present the latest findings. Country reports are coming soon in an open access book published by Nordicom.
