International Conference on Media Business Landscapes

European integration has led to major changes in media landscapes with the harmonization of legislation among member states. Under this context, besides dismantling state intervention, liberalization and marketization of the sector has been witnessed along with increasing concentration and the transnationalization of the forms of ownership. The mostly English-speaking multi-sectorial and transnational conglomerates have taken a dominant role in the production and distribution of content, which has blurred the specific nuances of national media and led to the reduction of the heterogeneity of international media supply.

However, in the post-crisis global context of present time, the United States and the European countries are losing terrain where their traditional political, economic, and symbolic supremacy is concerned, whereas other countries outside the Western geography, such as China, Russia and Brazil, are increasing their importance in the international arena. At the same time, regional dominant nations are also acquiring economic supremacy in different areas of the world, e.g. Angola in Africa or South Korea in the Pacific. Strong non-Western economies are affirming themselves in the globalizedworld which has opened the way for them to buy strategic companies in several countries. Media corporations are being considered strategic assets in the global affirmation of emerging countries with autocratic political regimes and this trend is introducing questions regarding how illiberal views on media articulate with Western culture’s founding prerogatives of journalism.

Bearing in mind all these shifts that are currently taking place, this conference aims a contributing to a more in-depth knowledge on Media Systems and Globalization, and adding complexity to the scientific debate by addressing the issue from multiple perspectives.
