The Public Media Alliance prides itself on producing a wide range of academic and research material

Having previously developed a key set of papers on the present state and merit of public service broadcasting, we aim to create an online knowledge hub which can be used to explore events, publications and research proposals relevant to the wider concepts of public service media.

By broadening our outlook to public service media, it will allow us to explore and understand the challenges faced by broadcasters on a global scale. Such challenges include diminishing budgets, the convergence of media formats and globalisation, as well as the perennial issues of independence and impartiality. Furthermore, it will allow us to understand the way in which broadcasters can further their public remit in a more diverse social and media landscape.
