Commission on Media Policy

  • 2014-10-18 Strengthening the Press under Pressure of War and Repression

    General Information

    The Commission on Media Policy was founded under the name “Commission on Radio and Television Policy” to encourage democratic policies and practices. Today, the Commission brings together media practitioners, managers, and experts in both the public and private sectors from more than 25 countries in Central, East, Southeast, and West Europe and the United States to discuss and debate alternatives for media policymaking. The Commission was founded by former US president Jimmy Carter in 1990. The idea for its creation was born in the mid-1980s when Prof. Dr. Ellen Mickiewicz and former President Carter discovered the changes in the way the Soviet Union used television in comparison to the past policy while working on issues of international security and arms control. The first official Commission Meeting took place in the autumn of 1991 bringing together media practitioners, experts, and policymakers from both the United States and Russia. Since that date, the Commission meets annually, discusses the freedom, role, and future of the media in the world and makes substantive recommendations on a range of policy issues.
