Media Governance



The framework of media governance is useful for understanding the dynamics of the media ecosystem, which is not limited to media regulations and policies, but provides an integrated view of media systems. Governance provides a framework for identifying the network of actors, the blurred boundary between the private and the public sector, and the relationship between different socio-political dimensions. In particular, through interaction between actors, we see the system moving and changing. I have examined media changes in Korea from 1980 to 2017 through interaction among four factors, including the three stakeholders of government, industry, and civil society, as well as a global factor.
