CMPF Director, Pier Luigi Parcu will give an online seminar organised by the Strathclyde Centre for Internet Law and Policy on the effects of the digital economy on media pluralism.

The seminar will provide an analysis of the digital threats to journalism and media pluralism, from an economic and technological perspective: supply-side factors disrupted the news media traditional business models, whereas demand-side factors posed news risks to media diversity and plurality (disinformation, quantity vs quality, algorithmic-driven access to the news). We will describe the overall scenario, focusing then on the supply-side effects, the threats to media viability and on the solutions that can be proposed to favour the emergence of a new model to finance quality journalism in democratic societies.
