  • Description

Mapping Digital Media (MDM) is a 60-country study by the Open Society Foundations. It surveys the impact of digitisation and digital media on media pluralism, diversity, accessibility and independence, focusing on the core democratic service that any media system should provide: the provision of open, contestable, and diverse information about political, economic and social affairs. The project findings should inform European policy over standards, funding mechanisms, and legislation concerning media plurality and a host of related issues.
