Changes in Asian Media Systems

Changes in Asian Media Systems

In this area, the Institute is sought after as a partner in dialogue, all the more so because of Germany’s experiences post-war. Accordingly, the way freedom of expression and of the media in art. 5 Abs. 1 GG (article 5 paragraph 1 Basic Law) is understood can be interesting for societies in the midst of a democratization process and anxious about the opinion-forming power of strong private groupings, given the rapid economic development. In addition, there is interest in our expert insight into new forms of regulation and into the function of public broadcasting systems. Against this background, the Institute – with the support of the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation – is involved in consultations on the reform process in Thailand, for instance, through workshops with representatives of the government, the local public broadcasting system and with reformers.

Project Description

The Institute is considering the possibility of systematically collating these activities in the Asia-Pacific region by bringing in contacts to colleagues at the Center of Creative Industries in Brisbane. In addition, a letter of understanding has been signed with the National Law University in Delhi, India. Furthermore, a collaboration has been set up with Hong Kong University on the particular topic of “privacy”.

All these activities concern more than the mere transfer of knowledge: on the one hand, many colleagues in those localities are working at a high level internationally, so that it appears sensible to cooperate in research. On the other, the Institute is expanding its understanding of how media systems compare and of the way legal instruments of governance function in different social and cultural contexts.
