An initiative to connect international experts on media and communication law.
The current technical and social developments in the area of media and telecommunications present a transnational challenge for those regulating this area. Engaging with it will only succeed through transnational cooperation.
For the project on co-regulation (see project no. 11), the institute has recourse, for example, – aided by the EMR Institut für Europäisches Medienrecht (Institute for European Media Law) – to a network of experts in all EU states. At the same time, the institute is keen to establish and extend long-term contacts. In this context, a European network called „Regulation of Media and Information in European Societies” (REMEDIES) is also to be seen and the institute is seeking finance for it. In addition, the Hans-Bredow-Institut is participating in loosely-structured networks, such as the „Collaborative and Networked Approaches to Communications Policy Research and Reform” (COMO Alliance), which was founded on the initiative of Monroe E. Price, Director Project for Global Communications Studies, Annenberg School for Communication University of Pennsylvania, together with other experts on the topic of Global Media Governance, in the Spring of 2006.
