Item description for Guarding the Watchdog: The Council of Europe and the Media (Making Democratic Institutions Work) by Kayhan Karaca...
Freedom of speech and access to information are basic rights fundamental to a democratic society, and underlie the development of an independent media. This publication reviews the work of the Council of Europe since the 1950s to support media freedom by establishing European standards and regulations covering television and radio, print and electronic media. It also considers a number of challenges facing European media policy, including freedom of speech in the context of globalised terrorism, the role of journalists in conflict situations, media ownership and the issue of media concentration.
