Project Description

In the context of the project, the Hans Bredow Institute conducted a survey of the regulation/support measures of local and regional television.

Building on the analysis of the four steps, options for action according to broadcasting law were presented, which can promote reinforcing of local television in Eastern Germany whilst observing the limits imposed constitutionally and by the law on subsidisation.
