About this book


This book offers an analysis of public service broadcasting (PSB) in European Countries that highlights the issues – both legal and not – currently facing PSB. Focusing particularly on the link between public TV and the political class, Giorgia Pavani offers an overview of the structure and governance of PSB from both a comparative and international viewpoint. The text is a useful research tool for those who want to study PSB from a viewpoint that goes beyond the legal perspective, and helps the reader to further understand the phenomenon of influence on public TV policy. By combining new comparative approaches in the studies of PSB with a detailed and updated analysis of International, European and comparative law, the result is an innovative and multidisciplinary volume that seeks to unpick the relationship between PSB and politics.
