European and International Media Law

Chapter Six sets out, separately, the principles and rules of European and international human rights law that most directly affect the media. The Chapter examines the ECHR Article 10 right to freedom of expression, explaining the judicial development of its core purpose of protecting scrutiny and comment on public affairs. It also examines competing ECHR based rights and interests and the use of proportionality analysis to achieve a balance between these and the liberty to publish. The Chapter looks at other Council of Europe treaties and instruments concerning media issues, including regulatory independence, public service media and prescriptive rules protecting state and public interests. Chapter Six then discusses Article 19 of the ICCPR in comparison to Article 10 of the ECHR, including various successes and failures in developing a liberal democratic interpretation of freedom of expression in international law in different venues.
