Liberalizing the European Media

Shalini Venturelli

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the question of information rights or participatory rights in the European Union. It raises questions on whether constitutional traditions and provisions on communication rights and highly diverse public interest may be used as a basis for developing a set of common principles and ideals that will mould and guide the information society in the age of information. This chapter also attempts to show the strong dependence of the public on its constitutional guarantees for the information rights of participation. The studies presented in this chapter and in the book in general address, through investigation of the information society's policies, the importance of the discussion for a participatory public space. This chapter presents the result of the analysis of the study that the concept of laissez faire competition is invalid when viewed under socio-legal empirical evidence and standards of the participatory framework.
