It compares metrics that have been developed in different parts of the world to assess levels of, or threats to, media pluralism.

Reviews

"In addition to drawing on individual research conducted by the editors and contributors, experts in the field of policy making, regulation and political economy of the electronic communications sector, this valuable addition to the literature draws on findings of an important study for the European Commission on indicators for media pluralism and the development of a media pluralism monitor (MPM). Together, with its ambitious global sweep and consideration of future challenges, it makes an important contribution to our understanding of the implications for media pluralism of the tremendous changes in media technologies and markets." Professor Peter Humphreys, School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester, UK
