Media Plurality – 23rd May 2012

The ESRC Centre for Competition Policy (CCP) and the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association (CBA) are holding a discussion on media plurality.

We believe that, against the background of widespread concern about dominance in the media, several official inquiries and the prospect of the new Communications Act, this is a rare opportunity for serious and radical thought to affect media policy in the UK. We believe this will only happen, however, if there is a real engagement between rival ideas and this is why we are organising this event.

The event will be attended by specialists in the fields of media and competition policy. Our invited panel members (including Peter Preston, David Elstein, Chris Goodall, James Heath and Charles Clarke) will represent the broad range of divergent views on how the media plurality rules ought to be reformed.

The event will be held 5pm – 6.30pm in the CPA Room off Westminster Hall, London. Attendees will need to arrive in good time for the event in order to allow for the security checks on entrance to the House. A drinks reception will be held after the event.
