Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Media regulation through self-regulation and political legislation faces the challenge of transforming the media system. International media and platform providers such as Google, Facebook, TikTok, Microsoft etc. have been mixing up the media market for some time. This is also having an impact nationally; moreover, the national media systems, such as in Austria, have their very own problems. From a media ethics perspective, however, this regulation is highly significant. So what should media regulation look like today, which media-ethical standards should it follow, what is the significance of media self-regulation, how are the laws made? These and other questions will occupy us in the seminar.
Students will learn about the challenges of political and legal regulation of the media. They will deal with current European and Austrian media legislation. The students learn to assess media regulation and can argue in a knowledgeable and comprehensible way in the field of media regulation.
