About the Talk

The European Commission presented its proposal for a European Media Freedom Act (EMFA) in September 2022, thus initiating a paradigm shift in European media regulation. It aims to guarantee the plurality and freedom of the media in the European Union by the European Union. While the Commission is pursuing objectives that are beyond doubt, the proposal meets with competence doubts and institutional reservations: Can the internal market competence carry the proposal? How does the envisaged media supervision fit in with the principle of state neutrality? And lastly: Can the regulatory approach as such be approved?
