The devolution of broadcasting is under active consideration, with an Expert Panel set up as part of The Co-operation Agreement between Welsh Government and Plaid Cymru tasked with developing plans for a new regulatory framework that works for Wales.
But what does ‘devolution of broadcasting’ actually mean? And in the current political context, how can Wales’s voice in the broadcasting landscape be strengthened?
This event launches the second and third parts of the IWA’s research on legislative and regulatory frameworks for broadcasting in Wales. Our paper outlines four case studies from countries across Europe, from which derive vital lessons for Wales.
Come to hear about the current broadcasting landscape in Wales and how it compares to devolved contexts in the Netherlands; the autonomous communities of Catalunya, Galicia and the Basque Country in Spain; the sixteen Länder of Germany and the three language communities of Belgium.
You will also hear how the recommendations made by the IWA’s report might benefit audiences and citizens in our fast-changing media and democracy.
The event will be introduced by Institute of Welsh Affairs Director, Auriol Miller.
Our panel will include:
- Dr Marlen Komorowski, Senior Research Fellow, Media Cymru
- Dylan Moore, Media and Democracy Policy Lead, IWA
- Dr Enrique Uribe-Jongbloed, Associate Researcher, Media Cymru
Presentation and discussion will be followed by a Q&A.
