Description

As the end of the millennia approaches most mass media debates focus on issues about the internationalisation and globalization of media ownership and media flow. What is rarely commented upon is the parallel, and seemingly contradictory, phenomenon of media decentralization and the proliferation of new communicative spaces in the small regions and local areas of Europe.
Decentralization in the Global Era presents studies of 12 member states of the European Union, each written by a national expert, which chart the evolution, current situation and possible future developments of television in the regions of each country.
