The Mertek Media Monitor launched a public dialogue that lasts several months. The objective of the debate is to reach and engage the widest possible range of stakeholders and to rethink the media regulation framework with their participation. The debate also brings to the public attention those professional considerations and interests that are required in the future media regulations and media policies. Our concept papers are starting points in the debate, but certainly not definitive answers to the questions raised.
Before debating the details of the regulatory framework, it is necessary to clarify what type of public sphere this regulation should help bring about. Further regulatory instruments could emerge from an analysis of this particular idea of the public sphere.
