The new media revolution seems to have overturned many old certainties. But is the technological change matched by fundamental shifts of power and influence, or will the traditional big players continue to wield vast influence? Do the new media contribute to, or undermine, a pluralistic public sphere? Do new technologies overcome bottlenecks related to traditional media – do they create new information gatekeepers? The event will offer a forum to discuss opportunities and risks for media pluralism resulting from new media. It takes place in the European Parliament and will bring together politicians, traditional and new media, academics, NGOs, judges and leaders from the music, film and book industries. The event is free but registration is required (closing date: 25 June).
